Snow already?

A couple of weeks ago we had our first dusting of snow for the season here in Central Illinois.  [Followed closely by a tornado, but that's a story for another day.]  Anyway, I felt so inspired by the snow, and I had recently purchased the Yeti, Set, Go stamp set from Lawn Fawn; so I decided to make a card for my hubby who is a huge fan of the yeti and Big Foot.  I've been waiting for just such an occasion as this to break out this stamp!

I started with a piece of Hawaiian Shores paper for my card base and used Stamper's Select White for my card panel.  The trees were die cut from patterned paper and stamped with Archival Jet Black.  I used Hawaiian Shores Ink to stamp the snowflakes.  I made the snowdrifts by covering some white card stock with Be Creative tape and Glitter Ritz Cool Highlight glitter; then I tore strips of the paper to create my drifted snow.

I don't think I've ever made a card with this type of pull tab before, so that was new and fun!  I love an interactive card!

I stamped my Yeti with Memento ink on blending card and colored him with Copics.  I also fussy cut him out with my Cutter Bee scissors and an Xacto knife.  I popped up my trees with pop dots that were slightly thicker than the one used behind my Yeti, so that he could slide behind more easily. 

Here you can see how he slips right in behind the trees.  It adds some extra depth to the card too!  I added some Stickles to my tree branches and snow flakes for some extra sparkle.

This is how my hubby chose to display him on the shelf in our living room.  He is cheerfully watching over us and making us smile!  He's such a happy little Yeti, and he LOVES the snow!  :)
