Be Merry Snowman Diorama Card

Another diorama card, a Christmas card this time using one of all my time fave snowman stamps.  I have this cheery snowman in two sizes, I've used the smaller size here.  The diorama card was made with Bashful Blue CS.  This card fits in a C6 size envelope.

 I stamped a background of snowflakes all over the front and side panels.  The apertures were made using Labels Eight Nestie dies and I put snowy stripe patterned paper on the back panel.  I stamped the snowman on watercolour paper, coloured him in using SU! markers and a blender pen and I added some sparkle with crystal ultrafine glitter.  I stamped the trees in Not Quite Navy ink, stamping off once first and then using the second and third impressions.  A couple of crystals either side of the sentiment finished off the card.  I love how much depth and dimension there is to these diorama cards when on display,  yet they fold flat for posting - ingenious!
