Spinning snowman

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well.

I have a card to share with you today that is my first attempt at this technique. It was so fun to do that I will start trying with other stamps.

I created a Spinner card.

I had a really hard time thinking of which stamp to use as the 'spinner'. I finally decided on this adorable snowman from the "Snow Pal" set (SU). 

I used a stamp from the same set which is quite large so I used my Basic Black marker to ink up the line of the sentiment which I wanted to use. 

The cut out for the slider created an aperture for me in which to place my sentiment.

I embossed the white panel with the Perfect Polka Dots folder (SU) for the feel of snow.

The snowman looks very happy that it is snowing when he is spinning around, lol.

I also coloured his sprig of holly with my SU markers and added some stickles to the berries.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

The Cute Pie Challenge #51 - Anything Goes - I think my snowman is very cute!

I hope you enjoyed my Spinning Snowman!

Thanks so much for looking xx
