After we had to destroy our entire snowman army that had become too sentient and rogue, the Lady Commander of Copics and I started working on blueprints to create a new snowman soldier. We got out some parchment and began sketching the design. This snowman warrior would be tough, but unable to evolve into a free-thinking being like the last ones, allowing us complete control over them. There is nothing worse than a herd of angry snowmen rampaging through some village.
started this card by making the background using Distress Inks and a
lot of water. After drying and distressing the edges with my blade, I
stamped the snowman from the Tim Holtz “Christmas Blueprint” set. I
added some colour to the chap using Distress Markers. I stamped the tag
from the Tim Holtz “Odds and Ends” set and attached it using a
paperclip. A button and some twine finished off this chilly creation.
(I’m always extra happy when I get to use a button on a card, giving me a
+87 morality boost).
inside sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes” set and
the snowflake whoosh on the bottom is just some cheap-o Recollections
I stamped that same snowflake whoosh on the envelope to make it all matchy-match.

think our blueprint for this new snowman soldier will work out well.
Luckily we’ve just had about a foot of fresh snowfall overnight as well,
which will help in the creation of our army. Time to bundle up and get
