Stamps by Chloe's Holly Wreath!

Here is a quick card created using Stamps and Paper By Chloe.

I wanted to add some dimension to the wreath so I layered two additional solid cardstock die cuts under the stamped and colored wreath. It just made the card pop a bit more!

Tip your hat!

Crafter's Companion new Build a Character dies are just such fun.  Today I'm sharing just the Joyful Snowman Die which will be available on HSN September 10th!

My idea to make a top hat proved to be a bit frustrating, quite a few hit the bin before I had success making this one.  If you are looking for a pattern so you can make one similar I suggest you google snowman top hat 3D I discovered there are many patterns available.  Everything else was made using only these Crafter's Companion dies:

Gemini Joyful Snowman Set

Sara Signature Winter Wonderland Traditional Tree
Gemini Sparkling Snowflakes 2

Watch for more Build a Character examples here as I have more to share.
