Paper Pieced Flocked Snowman Pattern

Paper pieced die cuts used to be something I did all the time! Today's project makes me so happy because I combined all the good things in life! Haha! Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets from ThermOWeb, die cutting, paper piecing, and snowmen! Snowmen are probably my favorite winter icon. They make me feel warm and fuzzy inside!

My card is inspired by the photo of the quilt above. Isn't it gorgeous?! I love the colors and the repeated lines of snowmen! I decided to use the pattern and piece together a large 6x6 card filled with snowmen. And I had the PERFECT die from Spellbinders in my stash. I gathered together some colors of Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets to build my snowmen. Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets die cut perfectly just like cardstock. My favorite way to die cut the Flock Transfer Sheets is to first transfer them onto layering weight cardstock. I add pieces of iCraft 6x6 Double Sided Adhesive Sheets to cardstock and then add the flock pieces into the adhesive fuzzy side down and use the pressure from a die cutting machine to fully transfer the Deco Foil Flock onto the adhesive.

I transferred pieces of White Latte, Black Velvet, Ruby Red, Green Envy, and Orange Glow Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets to cardstock and die cut them with the Snowman die from Spellbinders. I love using die cut pieces of flock in place of cardstock because it has unexpected texture! Once I die cut enough pieces for four snowmen I used iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive to glue all of the little pieces together. This is by far my favorite glue! It holds strong to a variety of surfaces! I picked out a piece of plaid patterned paper from Pink & Main and trimmed it to 5.5 x 5.5 inches and added it to a 6x6 card base.

I glued the four snowmen onto the card with iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive and a sentiment strip to the center of the card with iCraft 3D White Foam Squares to complete my card. I hope you are inspired to piece together some fun designs using Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets! See you soon!
