Parson Brown, I Presume
I wanted to try something new and found this idea for a double Z card at Splitcoaststampers. I used my "Snowmen Melt Your Heart" set from Heartfelt Creations and DP from Bo Bunny. I'm going to be so sad when this paper is gone. The card band is glued to the front underneath the button and bow. The ribbon then ties at the back. It may be hard to see but the inside sentiment says, "Snowmen Melt Your Heart".
The snowman was mostly coloured with my Copics. I didn't have any burgundy colours to match the snowflakes in the paper however so I needed to get creative. I made a circle mask and stamped my snowman onto it and then cut out the scarf. I then sponged the scarf with SU's Bravo Burgandy. I then cut out the hat ribbon and did the same. I love the textured effect it created.
This will definitely be a family card. They love non-traditional, interactive cards. It may not be a shaker or a spinner but it has visual interest and a puzzle to open.
