Snowman Christmas Card

I had fun with my Tim Holtz snowman die for this card. I cut it out of pearlized Bazzil card stock, and inked the edges with brown. The A2 card base is a confetti card stock, and the patterned papers have sparkly touches.

The buttons were threaded with narrow strips of chocolate brown card stock (Basic Grey - more like a heavy paper) and attached with Crystal Effects.  I cut a strip from the Stampin' Up chocolate chip striped ribbon, which is quite wide, for the scarf. The snowman is popped up with foam tape.

I love dies, and how versatile they can be. After I made this card I cut about 10 more snowmen out of  white card stock. Left plain, they make perfect tags for wrapped Christmas packages, with lots of room to write on them. They can be attached with foam tape, 2 faced tape, or tied on with bakers twine through his folded arm.

Thanks for stopping by today.
