Thanks Snow Much!

I needed to make some thank you cards and since they weren't being mailed I decided to make them 3" x 3". I have seen these snowmen on several blogs and thought they would be cute on the small note card. I have to apologize for the picture quality of the card. I wouldn't normally post something that was a little blurry but the card was so cute I had to post it. The base card is a piece of real red card stock cut 3" x 6" and folded in half to create the 3"x3" card. I cut whisper white card stock 3" x 2" and tore it to create the snow drifts and attached them to the bottom of the base card and added icicle stickles.

To create snowman I used the following:

Body: 1", 1 3/8" and 1 3/4" circles of whisper white card stock with the edges sponged in bashful blue ink

Hat: 3/4" x 1" and 1/4" x 1 1/4" pieced of black card stock; leaves punched from the 2-Step Bird Punch with mellow moss card stock, berry punched using largest hole on the Crop-a-Dile and real red card stock

Eyes and Buttons: largest hole on the Crop-a-Dile and black card stock

Mouth: smallest hole on the Crop-a-Dile and black card stock

Nose: scrap of pumpkin pie card stock

Arms: Snowflake Punch and chocolate chip card stock

Scarf: red gingham ribbon

Assemble the hat with tombow glue add the leaves and berry using tombow glue and attach to the 1" circle with tombow glue. Add eyes, nose and mouth of snowman to the 1" circle with tombow glue and attach to the 1 3/8" circle with a dimensional. Attach the arms to the underside of the 1 3/8" circle with tombow glue and attach to the 1 3/4" circle using dimensionals. Add the buttons with tombow glue and adhere ribbon with a mini glue dot. Mount snowman to card base with adhesive. I used tombow glue since the snowman is dimensional and I wanted to make sure it was adhered well.

Supplies Used: Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Black, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Mellow Moss; Ink: Bashful Blue; Other: Crop-a-Dile, 1", 1 3/8", 1 3/4" Circle Punches, Snowflake Punch, 2-Step Bird Punch, Red Gingham Ribbon, Stickles, Tombow Adhesive, Dimensionals
