The 'Frozen' craze - part 2

Recently I posted a card on here that I made for one of the little grand daughters in Germany. She was absolutely thrilled with 'Frozen' Elsa!

So, I sort of followed 'Frozen' again when Livi, Mia's younger sister's Birthday came round, and wondered maybe I ought to use an image of Anna?!

Then I thought that Olaf would appeal more. Thus, Olaf took centre stage for Livi's Birthday card:
I used:

- 8" x 8" square white card blank

- snow scene backing card is by Kanban called 'Artscapes - Winter Dale'

- Olaf was such fun to make, he comes as a printout you can download from here - you do have to snip all the pieces out then you can assemble him however you wish :) I printed him onto glossy photo paper

- at that point I fished out some acetate, which has a falling snow pattern all over it, and adhered it to the backing card using double sided adhesive sheet - that added a protective layer over Olaf in case of little fingers peeling him apart :)

- next I tied white organza ribbon round one edge and stuck the image panel to the card blank

- the bow was just a snippet of white spotted organza ribbon with a snowflake charm added using some green shiny cord

- the number 5 was (again) from Sarn, stuck onto a circle of snow blue card punched from the leftover backing card

- Livi's name was spelt out using Craftwork Cards letters, which had been stuck onto 1" squares of sky blue card - punched from more of the leftover backing card

- the sentiment is LOTV from their 'General Greetings - small' set, stamped using SU's 'Marina Mist' ink pad then die cut using a 'Speech Bubble' die made by XCut

- and lastly, two fir trees - die cut using Marianne's LR0136 die then embossed using Cuttlebug's 'Snowflakes' folder before being brushed with Wink of Stella (which doesn't show in the photo of course :) In fact, the overall shine of the acetate doesn't show either - which could be a good thing 'cos then maybe you wouldn't see the image on here :)

Edit - if you follow the link for Olaf, do scroll down to find the image itself. Other tabs may have opened so make sure you're on the actual Olaf image one.

As soon as I saw that thumbnail I knew it would be yours. Olaf is a cute snowman and all the Frozen fans love him, so I am sure Livi was delighted with her card. Kate x

Hettie said...

That card certainly appeals to me...Love Olaf!! Great card there. I just love Frozen, so much so I have ordered an advent calender from Asda with my home delivery tomorrow! See - it is not just for little kids! The sign of a good film when adults love it...or is it just me?

Pat said...

I hadn't heard of Frozen until your last card, probably as I don't have grandchildren to inform me. Anyway Olaf looks like a jolly snowman and I'm sure your granddaughter was delighted with it Di. I love the background and the acetate is perfect too. x
