My postage stamp dies...

are ones I love especially when I need an idea for a square card.


Using the postage stamp die set, which I think is by Spellbinders?,
 I die cut the back piece of folded white card stock, making sure the "top" doesn't cut all the way through.
Using a Judikins color duster and Adirondack denim ink I dusted the outside edge.
Next, from navy blue card stock I cut a piece just a bit smaller than the base card.
The final piece cut from white card stock and using StazOn jet black ink I stamped the snow man from Unity Stamp Company's "Snow Fun Upside Down".
 Since he didn't fill out the area I used a permanent black marker to finish the snow mound line and the snow flakes.
I colored the scarf using my Design Spectracolor pencils, then using the Judikins color duster and the denim ink I dusted the sky.
The buttons were added with glue dots, note the one in the lower right hand corner that fell off the upside down snowman!!!
The verse was stamped from the same Verve set using the jet black ink.
