Happy New Year! Card with a quilled snowman

Happy New Year! Card with a snowman

Wishing you a Happy New Year! I made this greeting card with a quilled snowman using blue card stock for the base, and white and light blue copy paper for the quilling and decoration. The tools used for this card include paper punches and patterned scissors.

The snowman is a pretty simple one, it's made of 1/8"-wide (3mm) hand-cut quilling strips. For the hat and scarf I used purple strips crimped with a homemade crimper. The pompom on the hat is just a tiny fringed flower. The snowman is three-dimensional, I enclosed it into a transparent plastic dome — a half of an egg toy packaging. I also poured some "snow" in there, which is actually small pieces of shredded copy paper. You can cause a real "snowstorm" if you shake the greeting card :)

The lettering was made with a metallic silver gel pen. Size of the card 4x6 inches (10x15cm).

Happy New Year!

So cute!!! Love the recycled dome, I also have saved plastic packaging for shaker projects because of the extra space and unusual shapes they provide! Looking forward to seeing what beautiful thing you creat in 2010!!

Какой замечательный снеговичок! Очень необычная открытка,этот купол случайно не от киндер - сюрприза?

Класс!! Идея супер!! Открытка очень красиво смотрится!!! А снеговик приклеен или он просто лежит в яйце?
С Новым Годом!!!

Thank you, Regina! Happy New Year to you too!

asti-n, Anjuta - спасибо большое!

asti-n - купол не от киндер-сюрприза, у него он не прозрачный, это от какого-то другого яичка-игрушки.

Anjuta, снеговик приклеен к задней стенке купола - к фону.
