Snowman Thank You

  This is going to be a quick post this morning as I have to clean my house to get ready for the first stamp club of the year tomorrow.  I'm so excited for my ladies to see all the new spring catalog goodies and the wonderful Sale-a-bration offerings.  But first I need to get my house in shape!  No one wants to see dog and cat hair blowing across the floors!

  Check out this cute little snowman I made for after Christmas thank yous.  I saw THIS card by bookworm over on Splitcoaststampers and thought it was just so adorable that I needed to make my own version.

  I stamped Snowflake Soiree in Whisper White craft ink onto a Baja Breeze card base.  I added a strip of Floral District DSP along one edge.  When I first saw this pattern last summer it totally looked like little snowflakes to me and I've been kind of hoarding it to use this winter!  I cut a narrow strip of Rich Razzleberry and used the large scallop edgelit to add some detail.

  The snowflake is cut with the Snow Flurry die.  I added one of the new Sycamore Street buttons (SAB) tied with Island Indigo bakers twine.  The thank you banner was stamped in Island Indigo and hand cut.

  For the snowman I used the new oval framelits to cut an oval out of Whisper White and then just cut the oval in half.  His scarf is also a SAB item, Sycamore Street ribbon.  You get 3 colors of buttons and 3 colors of ribbon in once package….it's an awesome SAB reward if you ask me!  His carrot nose is Pumpkin Pie textured cardstock (retired) punched with the pennant builder punch.  Each pennant can be cut in half to get 2 noses.  His eyes are black brads.  I popped the snowman up on dimensionals because I just can't say no!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Oh Amanda! How stinkin' CUTE! I LUV him!! Thanks for sharing! I might just have to CASE this but I'll be sure to give you all the credit! Awesome! You know, I'm making a quilt with half snowman heads (been working on that one for three years), why didn't I think of turning him into a card? Ugh! Sometimes I have to be encouraged to think outside the envelop! To cute!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
