Paneled Snowman

Did anyone try today's sketch challenge? Panels make me nervous because I can never get them even, but I gave it a whirl anyhow. I turned it into another little square card that measures 4 1/4 x 4 1/2. Once I had folded that in half, I measured 1 inch down for my fold line and scored the front sheet. This created a top panel. After stamping and gluing down the pieces for that panel, I took a double rectangle punch, folded the card like it would stand and punched ribbon holes through all the layers. Kinda gives it a different fold when you open the card. For the snowman, I masked him off to add a little oval underneath and then coated it with Stickles to make it look like snow! This is another set that TAC is retiring at the end of December and another one that I will never be able to get rid of. I just love it! Happy Stamping!

Paper: Green Galore, Ballet Blue, Bashful Blue, white
Ink: Noir (Palette, TAC), Ballet Blue, Cloud White (Versamagic, TAC)
Other: American Craft ribbon, double rectangle punch, ticket corner punch, brads, Stardust Stickles
