Frosty Friend

Using straight and wavy crimpers is a great way to add dimension and interest when creating a scene.

Begin with a 4 x 5.25 blue background.  Emboss with small dots.  (Cuttlebug Swiss Dots here).
This stamped snowman image is set upon two "hills" created by tearing a 2 x 4 rectangle diagonally. Run each piece through the wavy crimper.  Turn the ends so they create overlapping hills.  Secure the sides and bottom to the base.
Add two evergreen trees, which have been folded down the center line, and also run through the crimper.  This gives them dimension and the impression of having branches.
Add a section of die cut fence.
Add the colored, stamped image.
Stamp a "Merry Christmas" sentiment on a stamped oval, which is attached with dimensional foam dots.

This Cool Yule card is easy to reproduce with many different products on the market. 
If I can answer any questions for you, please leave me a comment,  or send me an email.

Happy Crafting ~
