{The Cat's Pajamas Sneak Peek} Build Your Own Snowman

Welcome to another day of The Cat's Pajamas sneak peeks. Today we are debuting the oh-so-fun Build Your Own Snowman set.

I stamped the smaller snowman body onto a Neenah cardstock circle, masked it off and stamped the larger snowman body. I then "built" the snowmen with various pieces from the set, stamping the twig arms with Hot Fudge ink. I colored all the elements with Copic Markers. I cut out a circle from the front patterned panel and a layer of craft foam, plus another circle from clear acetate. I sandwiched everything together with craft foam, filling the inside with seed beads and sequins. I added two more snowflakes from the sequin pack to the outside edges of the circle, topping them with a small rhinestone. The partial sentiment was stamped directly onto the patterned paper panel. I have a confession in that I fully intended on finishing the sentiment "all different & all beautiful"on the inside but some how or other I have managed to lose it! I am sure it is here somewhere in the release week chaos that is my craft desk.
