3D Snowman, in 3 tiers

Designed using the Cricut Design Studio and George n Basic Shapes cart.  I took the design from the last 3D snowman inspired by Karen Burniston, and enhanced upon it, as many snowmen have the three sections (head, chest and stomach) I wanted to see if I could do the same look; I made a broom from scraps, orange card cut several times to look like bristles, joined into the broom handle Brown card folded and fixed in place with ribbon, and adhered this to his chest next to his arm as this area is stronger. Added ribbon to the snowman to reflect a scarf and black flat pearls as pieces of coal for his facial features and buttons.

The card itself is matted and layered on the front and on the inside of the card, using both mirror card and patterned paper.  I inked around the white card and used swiss dots embossing folder to add texture. Then cheated and added premade sticky embellishments (Santa and HoHoHo).

To construct, I just had to add the chest peices before I add the stomach! to make him stand/fold correctly!
