Hello Friends!
Today over on the Tutti Designs Blog, I'm stepping in for new DT member LeAnne who has unfortunately not received her dies to create with yet in Canada ... hmmm, guess shipping is going to take longer than we thought!  
Anyways, hopefully she will have her dies and her own creation to share with you next Wednesday, but for today, you're stuck with me!  LOL

Today's creation is quick, easy and I think adorable!
I've used three Tutti Designs dies ...

TUTTI-137 Jolly Snowman

TUTTI-217 Nesting Stitched Rectangles

TUTTI-230  Word Set - Believe

Here are a few little tips on how this creation came together . . .

I wanted my snowman to have added dimension so instead of fussing with dimensional tape since this beautiful die is so intricate, I die cut it three times ... colored the one that would be on top ... glued them all together.  

I created my background panels using an older off cut for blue snowy paper and a panel of white card stock that was embossed with the Sizzix Tim Holtz falling snow embossing folder.

To create my FRAME for Mr. Snowman, I die cut a panel of black card stock using the largest and 3rd largest Stitched Nesting Rectangles.  Then I used dimensional tape before adhering to my background.

As you can see in the photo below, this gave my card wonderful dimension against the snowy background.  Lastly, I needed a sentiment and who doesn't Believe a snowman comes to life when we're not looking!!  LOL

Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store and check out all of the fabulous dies available.
