Meet Mr Frosty

Hello everyone, I hope you're all having a good week so far and I'm here today with a little cutie to show you that really is very easy to make and could either be a card for a special someone or a Christmas decoration if you can't bear to part with him after you've made him up - that would be me I think! He's my project for today over at the Studio 12 Creative Team blog as he's made from the gorgeous image on the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 2 CD - Gingerbread Twist.


To make Mr Frosty, all I did was print out the gorgeously cute snowman his actual size (he's about 19cm tall) on sturdy white card. I printed him once as he is and the flipped the image in Photoshop Elements to make the back.
I cut both of the snowmen out leaving a tab at the top of the front one's hat to attach him to the back. I then printed out a couple more images on thinner card and then decoupaged his head and clothing from one and just the hat, scarf and carrot nose from the other. All elements were attached with foam tape and I then inked the outer edges with a smoky blue ink.
How easy is that!

Don't forget to catch Dee on Create and Craft on Saturday where you'll find loads of inspiration as well as a chance to get your hands on a copy of the fabulous Studio 12 Picknix Collection 2 CD - Gingerbread Twist.
Hugs, Fliss xx
