Snowman Christmas Card

Created this Christmas Card mostly with the Tim Holtz Snowman Blueprint die/stamp set. However, I did not use my Tim Holtz Vagabond instead I used my Sizzix BIGkick along with the magnetic plate.

Colors are: Red, White, Kraft & Black.

Easy paper piecing of the layers of the snowman with the dies that come with the TH Snowman Blueprint die/stamp set. 
Below are photos of the card in Central TX snow. Thursday we had sleet. Friday morning woke up to snow on the ground. Forecast was for a wintry storm like 2 yrs ago when Dallas hosted the Super Bowl and the forecasters were correct. Lots of ice. I can take the snow but do not like the ice.

Supplies List 

inks: Memento Lady Bug, VersaFine Onyx Black
machine: Sizzix BIGkick
paper:  cardstock - Kraft, red, white
stickles: Xmas Red

  1. Adorable snowman card; he's right in his element in the outdoors with the ice and snow! Thank you for playing along with us Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenge.

  2. I totally love this card -and of course the stamps and die - that is why I just had to have that set -TFS - you can keep all of the snow and ice - we had some snow today but it is now gone - I wonder if it traveled back to Texas??? Enjoy your crafting week - I have time to do K.Journal - I thought it ended today - Yeah - working on those now!
