Merry Monday #164!

We have such a fun challenge for you this week at Merry Monday. Nina asked that we create a card with a "funky hat" on it. How fun is that?

 
I had to get a little creative as I have absolutely no stamp images with hats. I used the Banners Framelits Dies to cut a banner shape with a fold and added elements to create my snowman with a hat card:


The card base is Whisper White Cardstock measuring 10" x 3". I folded in the center at 5" and folded. I placed my Banner Die on top of the cardstock and made sure the fold was inside the framelit so it would stay intact. Once I cut the banner shape, I added Basic Black layers for the hat that were embossed with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder and blinged up with Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim:


For the face I used the 1/2" Circle Punch for the eyes and a 1/4" Handheld Circle Punch for the mouth. The cheeks were sponged with Pink Pirouette Ink using a Sponge Dauber. I added a nose that I hand-cut into a long triangular shape and finished off my eyes by adding squiggly lines with a White Signo Gel Pen:

 
I would love it if you joined us this week by adding your own creation to our gallery featuring "Funky Hats" and make sure you visit my wonderful teammates to see what they created for you this week!
