I chose the Tim Holtz Assembly Snowman Bigz die which made the paper piecing very easy. I selected the background designer paper first. It's American Crafts - Campy Trails. I got a real winter feel from this paper so thought it went well with the snowman. As a background to the tag I placed a piece of cream pearl card stock, cut to leave a large border all the way around. I decided to use the Jumbo Crescent Tag from Sizzix and cut it from the designer paper. The paper has a warm white in it so I chose a warm white card stock to cut my snowman. The band on the hat is the same cream pearl card stock. Brown for his arms, a deep red for his scarf and orange for his carrot nose. I drew the eyes in with a black marker. I was tempted to put something on his belly but resisted. I used quick dry glue from Scotch to assemble the pieces of my snowman. I glued him to the large tag. I added a soft seam binding in a complimentary color. The tag was adhered to the card front with 3D foam tape.
