An Exclusive Country Snowman Card How To With The Best Glue Ever

Hello there! Welcome to the ScraPerfect blog. Michelle here today, to share with you one of my holiday card designs, using many products from ScraPerfect, including the Best Glue Ever.

ScraPerfect products used:
-Best Glue Ever
-No Clog Writing Cap
-Perfect Crafting Pouch
-Embellie Gellie

Additional supplies used:
Heavy Cardstock 
Christmas Print Scrapbook Paper
Wood/Chipboard Snowflakes 
Ink Pads
Christmas Word Stamps
Mini Pom Pom Trim
Jute Rope
Embossing Folder
Original Dew Drops From The Robin's Nest
Snowman Template
Printed & Stamp Phrase
Doublesided  Adhesive Squares
Pearlescent Chalk

To begin, I cut a 5.5x7.5 card from an 8x10 sheet of Kraft cardstock. I then followed by cutting patterned paper 5x7 & solid white cardstock into 6.5x4-3/4, for the layers of the card. I used a dot embossing folder & Sizzix Big Kick on the white cardstock block to add texture.

Using my die cut machine to cut designs of a snowman, hat & scarf. With ink, I lightly gray shadowed the edges of the snowman, and used a metallic ruby shade on the edges of the hat elements. I also swept pearlescent chalk along the right side of each snow man, and also swept it on the wood cut-out snowflakes I will be adding later.

Once I completed drawing the snowmen's faces, I used the Best Glue Ever with a No Clog Writing Tip, to glue all snowman elements together, including adding the pom pom trim & TRN Dew Drops, applying these to the BGE with the Embellie Gellie.

While waiting for the Best Glue Ever to set, I added the patterned paper to the Kraft card base, also using BGE. I used double sided adhesive squares to add the now texture embossed white cardstock block. Once the snowmen set, I added them to the white cardstock blocks on each card.

To finish the card design, I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch on my holiday greeting cling stamp, for a more "crisp" stamped image (see 2nd photo below) one on the left shows how much more defined the wording is.  I then used dimension double sided squares to add sentiment to the cards.

*The Perfect Crafting Pouch can also be used to remove any tackiness left by using a wee bit to much glue on any project, as I did with one of these cards.

I used the Best Glue Ever to add jute rope trim and bow on the folded side of the card. I also used BGE to add silver sequins to the design, and to adhere a wood cut-out snowflake on each card.

And there you have it, an adorable country snowman card, to spread holiday joy to all who receive them.
