Honeycomb Snowman Card

This card measures 6ins x 6ins and uses a hand cut, white linen effect blank.
Following on from last week I had another idea for using the honeycomb snowmen embellishments I found in The Works last year.
Again they were pretty simple to put together, I hand wrote the centre panel first, using a black fine liner pen so that I got the space for adding the snowman just about right. 

With that done all I had to do was give the snowman some small, black dome sticker eyes and a little Ranger Glossy accents on his hat, nose, scarf and gloves, I find that adding just a touch of Accents here and there helps bring an inexpensive embellishment more to life.
The final touches came by adding four white snowflakes (Hobbycraft £1 for 16g), a few clusters of three little dots and a bit of glitter round the bottom of the snowman.

Naturally, I will send the card flat, but all the recipient has to do is peel off the tag and bring over his body to reveal the self adhesive honeycomb middle.

Again, although most of my cards this year will be one offs I love this design so much I have made a few extra but still have one more pack left just in case inspiration strikes again.
