Tip: It’s easier to die cut with the tape already in place for trickier designs.

4. With a Fiskars punch, make a hole in the hat of the snowman in order to attach your earring clips.


5. Place the embossing pad over the snowman and then sprinkle the WOW embossing powder over the top, removing any extra powder. Heat the snowman with the embossing heat tool to form a gloss over the top of the snowman.


6.Finally, add the earring fixing to the hole.
