Merry Monday: Be Very Merry

This week's challenge at Merry Monday is to use snowmen.  I had just gotten a Memory Box die of teeny tiny snowmen so thought I'd create a miniature scene.

Be Very Merry


A word of advice - do not get this little die - unless you happen to have micro-tweezers and the tiniest glue dot/bottle etc.  These snowmen and their itty bitty hats are incredibly difficult to work with!  I'm actually not sure I'll even use this card because I'm not convinced those little guys will stay together in the mail!  (But I had to use them at least once because they were the reason I got that sentiment.  It's a Stampin' Up individual and it was hiding in a corner of the holiday catalog. Once I noticed it, I think it was my favorite thing in the catalog!)

(Also submitting to Simon Says Stamps Anything Goes challenge.)
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up Be Very Merry
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Coastal Cabana, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Coast Cabana
  • Accessories: Memory Box Mini Snowmen, Stampin' Up Aqua Mist twine, Spellbinders square die, Cuttlebug Embossing, Martha Stewart Fine Crystal Glitter

Teeny-tiny snowmen with a huge impact. You've made something really fun and sweet here. Love this, but will take your advice and not order this die. Great colors too. Bev

Ha, ha, you always make me laugh!
Well Memory Box dies are well known for their very detailed and elegant dies, so there you have it.
Your card sure looks elegant and detailed and let's not forget to mention 'very merry' too, ha, ha.
I can soooo imagine you being busy and all with micor-tweezers and tiny gluedots....
Well it's certainly worth all the effort.
Your card is GREAT! :-)
Even more now that we know how much trouble these little merry fellows have put you through. :-)
Bye,

Marjolein

ps. ...wouldn't it be a shame if you'd never use this die again?...
They ARE cute!

These tiny snowmen are delightful! Sorry they were so hard to work with! I hadn't noticed that sentiment in all my runs through the catalog. Thanks for pointing it out! I love the color you chose for the background! Thanks for bringing this over to Merry Monday to share with us!

Well I adore those bitty snowmen but I can see the trouble they would be!!! I am terrible at working with small pieces when using adhesive. So I totally get it!!! Love how you glittered them up though. Such a fun card and thanks for enabling with that sentiment...it is cute!
