Merry Monday Sketch 27 - Frosty Snowman Cards

I really liked the latest sketch for Merry Monday's at the Always Playing With Paper Blog, and made two cards; both identical except for the snowman.

The paper stack is by Recollections, the blue card stock is from Papertrey Ink, the label is a Spellbinders die, snowflakes embossing folder by Sizzix, and the snowman is a stamp set by Stampendous.

Each of the snowmen bodies are the same, but the set comes with different faces, hats etc. I stamped everything on white card stock, then added colour, glitter and glossy accents. When dry the pieces were hand trimmed and attached together onto the fancy label shape. I love that the snowmen have completely different personalities!

Two more large cards for my Christmas Card Stash!! (These cards are 5 x 6.5").   I have been on a real Christmas Card kick lately -- once I get my Christmas papers and supplies out, I just get into the Christmas spirit and find it hard to get out of it again.

When I went to check on the new Freshly Made sketch this morning, I see that my card HERE was chosen by one of the Design Team Members (Ann) as a Perfect Princess. Woo Hoo!

 AND the sketch looks like another winner so I'm hoping to play later today. Right now - the chores are waiting.

Thanks for stopping by today!
