Snowman Christmas Card

I seem to be in a Snowman Christmas Card mood lately. Made this Clean & Simple CAS Christmas card using Tim Holtz Snowman embossing folder. Used a sketch which you can see below. Used Kraft cardstock for base, Martha Stewart Holidays designer paper that I have had for a long time and white cardstock. I liked how the MS Holidays Designer Paper on the right complemented the Kraft cardstock and had snowflakes on it like the paper on the left. Used a Scrappy Moms Dancing in Circles 2 sentiment. Used a Stampin' Up circle punch to make sentiment tag. Used Spellbinder dies for the pennants. Inked the edges of the sentiment tag & pennants.

Card can be for male or female.

Supplies List 

ink: Memento Lady Bug
paper: cardstock -  Martha Stewart Holidays Designer Paper, Kraft. white
Spellbinder: Shape Nested Pennants
stamp: Scrappy Moms Dancing in Circles 2 - sentiment
Stampin' Up: punch - 1 3/8" circle
Tim Holtz: embossing - Snowman embossing folder
