Snowman for Ian

This is a birthday card for my grandson.  He decided he wanted a snowman birthday party.  We live in Missouri and the winter here has been exceedingly warm.  It is weird to be 70  at times in  February.

The design for this card came from Splitcoast Stampers.  It is called a Z Box Pop-Up card.  It was easy to make but suggest you watch the video for placement of the layers inside the box.

The carstock all comes from Paper Temptress.

All the white on the card is cryogen white so it has some shimmer to it.  The black eyes are
Onyx Mica Metallic.  The touch of orange for the nose is Poptones Orange Fix.  All the snowflakes are Aquamarine Mica Metallic.  The happy birthday is Lapis Lanzuli.  Finally the ovals for the base for the Ian and 4 is Light Blue Basis.

Sales at Paper Temptress

Hi all!  Happy Sunday.  There is a special  on mica metallic and vellum is  going on at Paper Temptress so when I was deciding on my project it just seemed perfect to showcase  a couple of the sale items.
The base for this card is Neenah classic Laid. I have been around for a while so this is no longer available but I think the Baronial Ivory Linen would work well.   The dark blue layer is Lapis Lazuli Mica Metallic.  I wanted some contrast so the strips are Serpentine Mica Metallic. The amber Mica Metallic was good for the wording.
I wanted a layered flower to set things off.  Layers of Mother of Pearl Vellum did the trick.  In the picture below you can also see the shimmer in the mica metallic.
