Fallen Snowman

This snowman has lost his head. It seems that our fear of falling grows simultaneously with our physical age. I remember an advertisement that was made for a medical alert monitor. An elderly person falls, pushes a button and yells, "I've fallen, and I can't get up!" My I used to roll my eyes and laugh, laugh, laugh. Now, I wonder if I should invest in this monitoring device. What is your fear?

   Cold Play

   Whisper White A-2, Scraps, 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Archival Basic Black
   Soft Sky

   Pumpkin Pie
   Real Red
   Basic Black

   Die Cutting

   Word Bubbles Framelits Dies
   All Is Calm Washi Tape
   Button Brights Collection
   Glue Dots

First, I stamped my snowman in pieces. The large circle on the bottom, followed by the middle circle, slightly off-balance. I stamped the arms, also off-balance. The facial circle was stamped, colored, and cut from a scrap of Whisper White. I adhered it with dimensionals when I was putting the card together.

Next, I wrote out my sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White and die cut it, using the Word Bubbles Framelits Dies. I sponged it with Soft Sky ink and attached it using dimensionals after all of my snowman pieces were in place.

I added a couple of colorful buttons using glue dots. One of the buttons I placed on the bottom, since the snowman has fallen. 

Once the snowman pieces were in place, I stamped and colored in the hat of the snowman. Of course, the hat is upside down. 

Lastly, I stamped snowflakes using Soft Sky as the background. I added some washi tape as a backing for the word bubble. I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.
