Pilin' on the Snowmen

The theme this week at Pile It On is Christmas/Winter in July, and we're sponsored by StitchyBear's Digi Outlet and I used Snowman with Sign by Ken Benner Designs.

This was a relatively easy card to make, as the base is from an IO Shake It card set. I made the top layer from a DP using a circle die.

I colored the snowman (other than the snow part) with Copic markers. I made the background by coloring it green and going over it with a blender pen. The "Warm Wishes" sentiment is a physical stamp that just fit onto the image! I filled the shaker card with Polar White Flowersoft and silver & blue glitters. I covered the white border with Glossy Accent & Diamond Dust.
