And on to the next card from my Holiday card class.  It uses the Snow Buddies stamp set which is a Level 2 Hostess set in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday mini catalog. 

A cute set that basically lets you build your own snow man.  For this card some of us used the short snowmand and others used the tall snowman – everyone got to build their own the way they wanted.

The sample shown here is the short snowman with the ice skates.  I stamped his skates a bit below his body and added stick legs with a marker.  I found that to be easier (and look better) than trying to line up the ice skates perfectly with the bottom of his body.  Although if you used the stamp-a-ma-jig you shouldn’t have any problems lining it up.  I added the knit cap and arms. 

The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and some people used the “Merry Christmas” while others used “Happy New Year”.  My little trick is to punch the greeting with the Modern Label punch and then punch another Modern Label from a colored card stock – cut that one in half and add it behind the greeting so it hangs out on either end.  It looks like it is framing it without actually having a larger one. 

On the envelope I added the snow swirl and then the knit cap so it looks like it is blowing in the wind.  Wasn’t that what Frosty was after anyway – his hat blowing in the wind?  This stamp set includes a top hat as well and some people used that instead. 

I think it is a fun stamp set!  And I like snowmen.  We do not have a lot of snow where we live, maybe a dusting here and there.  And if there is snow in North Georgia since we are in the foothills we are just enough south that it doesn’t hit us usually.  Maybe this winter we’ll have a little so we can make our own real snowman.

Have a great day!
