Action Wobbles: Anything Goes!!

Hello Crafty Friends!  I have been MIA for a long time (about a year, eek!) and I thought joining a fun challenge would get me back into blogging and help get my Christmas cards done would be the best of both worlds =)   So here goes, I have been using this snowman die set by Stamps of Life for most of my Christmas cards and I thought it would be so much fun and cute to add an
Action Wobbler to one of them.

I've been trying my best to use all my paper stash especially my 12x12 paper stacks that are so heavy and take too much space.  So most of the glitter paper came from various paper stacks by DCWV. 

As you may know it's always tricky to adhere things onto glitter, I found that Stotch  Quick Dry Adhesive works really good.

Mr. Snowman's nose was debatable on so many levels, I first started out with no nose and then he looked so plain so -- after much feedback from family and friends I created him a nose.  Pretty much out, the noses were made free hand as the die set didn't come with a carrot nose and I couldn't stamp the nose onto the glitter paper. 
To make the nose I got an extra piece of white cardstock, used the orange from the Tim Holtz Distress Mini Ink Page Kit 1 cut out what looked like a carrot to me and put orange Stickles on it. When the Stickles dried though, I really didn't like how it came out, so I added Glossy Accents on top of it and that's when I was happy with the outcome of Mr. Snowman. 

Here's the finished card.  The eyes, mouth and buttons came from punching holes (from my Crop-a-dile)  into the same black glitter paper used for his hat by DCWV from The Twinkle Glints Stack
 Here's a quick video showing the cute guy wobbling, nothing too fancy but it was so much fun!!
