Card-io Snowman

Hello crafters, how quickly these Fridays come around.  Another Card-io blog for you today, this is my take on the Card-io Combinations Christmas Scenery 2
I took a 6" x 6" card and thought I'd use up some of the master boards we've been using recently (I explained how I made this board in my blog dated Friday 18th September) so cut a piece 5" x 5" then cut that in four even squares.

I then matted each square onto plain black card.  Once I cut the plain white card to place on top of the matted card, I placed thin double sided tape along each edge then dipped that into a container full of Glamour Dust.  I repeated that for each of the squares. 
It was then I decided not to mat a fourth square so simply masked off the area on the card and used Spun Sugar Distress Ink and a mini blending tool and softly blended the area before stamping my sentiments from the Card-io Christmas Sentiments.  I then added some gems for a little extra sparkle.
    I chose the snowman image from the Card-io Combinations Collection Christmas Scenery 2 and decided I wanted to stamp him on each square by using Black Onyx Versafine and Wow Clear Embossing Powder.  Once that was done I matted them all up ready to place on the card.
 Now I had all my elements I simply marked each square where I wanted it to go on the card and used foam pads for dimension.
Here's the finished card again.
I really like these stamps and looking forward to using more of them, so see you next week and hope you enjoyed this weeks card.
Love Jan -x-
