Happy New Year, and Long Tall Snowman

I know its New Year's Day but I still have some Christmas left in me. 

How about this tall skinny Snowman? Who says snowmen have to be round? This one is on a diet just like me. I started back on the wagon in full force today. 

Back to the project. 

He was made using the angled tag topper punch. 
First I cut a white strip of cardstock 2x10.
Then I cut a shorter strip of black. Using a paper cutter I cut off the top part of the black strip at 7/8 of an inch. This was glued down to the white tag matching up the hole in the top. 
Next I put down a strip of washi tape for the hatband. 
The brim was made with another piece of black cardstock. I cut the strip a little bit thinner so I could used the word window punch to make the strip long enough to form the brim. 

Eyes made with 3/8 circle punch, nose ornament punch from the punch pack. 
Mouth hand drawn. Stars for the buttons also made using start from punch pack with Daffodil Delight cardstock. 
Scarf is more washi tape. I ran it around the front and back of the white cardstock and fringed the edges after the ends were stuck together. 
Bottom pieces are torn white cardstock that had the edges inked with VersaMark then heat embossed with Iridescent Ice powder. Greeting from More Marry Messages. 
May you all have a happy and blessed New Year!
