Take your cut out snowman and layer two pennies together with a Mini Stampin Dimensional between the pennies.  Adhere the snowman on the back of the pennies.  Tuck the snowman with pennies into the slot on your card.

Starting with those awesome Large Letters again for the H, M, and E.  The “O” is an interchangeable decorative piece….first for the upcoming Holidays….I used one of our Boxwood Wreaths found in the main catalog…added Red Satin Ribbon and some Red Rhinestones for a lovely touch. 

IMG_E2052
IMG_E2050
I left the glass off this frame because of the the 3-D effect and because the "O” is interchangeable!!   The ideas are infinite!!   But I just made four different ones for the seasons….each one has a Velcro circle on  the back for a quick switch out!!
