Skipping Stones Design #155

I had some fun playing with Skipping Stones Designs snowman stamp set, which I've been itching to use.  My leftover My Mind's Eye papers were just perfect.
I actually used a white card base for this card, and the stamped images are on that white base.  I paper pieced the snowman's hat, scarf, and nose from pattern paper (the diagonal print in the strip at the top of the card).  I used a scallop die to cut an open image in the pattern paper.  Post-it notes held the seam together so I could make the cut in each of the two papers, and then I adhered them down around that stamped image.  Would it have been easier to just stamp on a white scallop circle?  Absolutely.  But I was going for a different look. the black dots around the scallop Inkessentials Enamel Accents from my LSS.  

I just love this stamp set!
