Olaf Card

Hello, Friends!  Looks like the characters from the movie Frozen are everywhere.  I have to admit that I haven't seen the movie yet; but I love the little Olaf character.   So, I'm jumping on the bandwagon and creating an Olaf love card.

A2 sized card = 5.5" x 4.25"
Olaf was cut 3 times to create a chipboard effect

Sentiment was printed onto paper before cutting and embossing

Images were all found from internet search and were traced, printed and cut within Silhouette software.
