Add-on Week, Part 4

Add-on Sketch #13

You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the add-on sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar.

“Smile Card” by Carolyn Wolff
Supply List - Cardstock: Bo Bunny; Patterned Paper: Simple Stories; Chipboard Die-Cuts: Fancy Pants; Ink: Ranger Distress Ink; Ribbon: Seam Binding; Carrot Nose: Darcie; Border Punch: EK Success; Tools: Glue Gun

Variation #1 – I made accordion circles for the body and head of my snowman. The top measures approximately 1 ¾ inches and the top measures approximately 3 inches. I used a border punch along one side of the strips that I used to make the circles. I love this because they have little hearts all the way around the circle.

Variation #2 – I added a chipboard heart to the hat and inked the edges with white ink.

Variation #3 – I used a small wooden carrot for the nose and did not add the mouth as shown on the sketch.

Variation #4 – I used ribbon for the scarf and tied it in a bow. .

Variation #5 – I mounted the completed snowman on to a piece of decorated chipboard and added the chipboard sentiment. I adhered it to the front of a card base and plan to save it for someone special.

OOOHHHH!! Carolyn, your snowman is completely fabulous!! I love the accordion circles for the body and the cute little heart border around the edges!!

Jill, you snowman is too cute and I really like that you turned him into a "triple decker"!! Great job Ladies!

Gloria Hill said...

Any suggestions on where to find the beautiful ribbon & wooden carrot nose Carolyn used on her snowman?

Both cards are delightful! I'm loving this Add-on!

These are the most adorable cards! You ladies rock!

Carolyn Wolff said...

Hi Gloria! The ribbon is seam binding. I received it in a ribbon exchange. I love it! It is very light weight and easy to work with. The carrot nose was purchased at an independent wood crafting store. They sell little things called miniatures.

Hope this helps.

Jill - I feel so honoured to be paired up with you. Your snowman looks so jolly and I especially like the heart on his middle.
