Instructions: Cut 5 1/2" x 11" white card stock for your card base. Score and create a crisp fold at 5 1/2". The base layer was cut from blue card stock and measures 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". For the scenic background, I selected a paper with spruce trees and a small snowman that would match Frosty. The designer paper was cut at 5" x 5". Frolicking Frosty was stamped on X-Press It card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink. (Memento Ink is compatible with Copic Markers and will not discolor the nibs.)
The image was colored with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers. I used the following color combinations - G40, YG61, YG63, YG39, C3, C5, C7, C9, YR20, YR24, B0000, B000, B21 and a touch of R20 to the cheeks. I speckled the image with opaque white ink to look like snowflakes. The image was die cut using the Frolicking Frosty and Spruce Die.
I masked the image on the designer paper with a Post-It Note and stamped some spruce trees with Weathered Wood Distress Ink. I created dimension by using a "stamp off" technique. The tree was stamped and then stamped a second and third time in different areas without re-inking the stamp. This will allow some trees to look like they are in the distance. I used an opaque white ink pen and dotted the trees in areas to look like snow.
The layers were adhered with double sided tape. Frosty was popped up on the paper with dimensional foam dots. For a little added bling - I used Designer Adhesive - Dries Clear Glue and dotted it in the sky. I then added white and blue Gala Glitz.
