Stitched Snowman

I thought it was about time I played with the Papertrey Ink Stitched Snowman die I 'had to have' last year, but never used!!!  I'm not very fast at sewing, but I'm sure after practice it would be easy to make some tree decorations or pencil toppers. In the meantime I made a tag.

I'm dreaming of snow today, because the temperature in Melbourne is predicted to be 38C degrees  - I REALLY hate this sort of heat! However, the good news is that it's supposed to change later tonight, so I shouldn't complain too much.

So for the snowman I used glitter paper, felt , plain card and markers and glossy accents for the eyes. The snow  border is made with a stamp  from Penny Black 'Prancer' set,  the snowflakes from Papertrey Ink and the sentiment from Kaisercraft.
I sponged broken china and Tumbled glass distress ink over the embossed tag and then spritzed with water. When dry, I mounted the snowman and added the bow and button.
