Snowman Builder

When I was challenged to build a snowman, I thought of circles. So, I punched out three circles in Basic White cardstock and created a Christmas card. Thoughts? 

   Cold Play
   A Cardinal Christmas
   Perpetual Birthday Calendar

   Soft Sky A-2
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside), 2-1/2" Circle, 2" Circle, 1-3/8 " Circle, Scrap
   Basic Black 1/4" Circle (2), 1/8" Circle (4)

   Archival Basic Black or Tuxedo Black Memento
   Pumpkin Pie
   Whisper White Craft


   2-1/2" Circle Punch
   2" Circle Punch
   1-3/8" Circle Punch
   1/4" Circle Punch
   1/8" Circle Punch
   Glue Dots
   Brights Button Collection

First, I punched out all of my cardstock circles. Note - You need two 1/4" Basic Black circles for the eyes and four 1/8" circles for the mouth.

I then stamped and fussy cut the snowman's hat. 

The nose, hat, and arms are from the Cold Play stamp set.

The sentiment is from A Cardinal Christmas stamp set.

The snowflakes on the background are from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set.

Next, I randomly stamped the snowflakes, using Whisper White Craft ink.

I then pieced my snowman together. I began with the largest circle on the bottom, followed by the medium circle and then the smallest circle on the top. I did not add any adhesive, until I was satisfied with the placement of the circles. 

I added the Pumpkin Pie nose to the center of the small circle and adhered the two black eyes and the four circles forming the mouth. 

I placed three buttons on the middle circle and stamped the arms. I attached the buttons, using glue dots.

I then stamped the sentiment on the largest circle. Satisfied with the placement of the circles, I adhered them all beginning with the bottom and working my way up to the top.

Lastly, I added the hat with a dimensional, stamped the arms, and adhered a Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
