Cute Snowmen Handmade Christmas

handmade christmas cards using stampin up products

Time for another Christmas Card Club challenge today and my are the weeks flying by.......
We are empty nesters this weekend with Charlie now settled at Uni for over two weeks and Liv is away with friends so we've enjoyed the peace, but missed the chat.  Good to have a taster before it happens full time one day.  

Our challenge today is to feature snowmen or a single snowman on our creations and I've used this very old stamp set, but I love it and I've enjoyed just adding a little colour and adding the die cut image to a simple fancy fold card base.

For the card base I use a piece of thick white card to create a standard tent fold and then folded back the card front half way to create the base. I've then used a narrow approx 3inch embossing folder to decorate the back layer of the card base but it leaves space for writing on without having to worry about the embossing.  

Simple addition of some patterned paper (DSP) and a matt layer to the die cut image and a white embossed sentiment.  

Such a lovely weekend here weather wise it seems crazy to be sharing snow images.  I hope the warmth and sunshine last a little longer.  

Have a great start to the week and thanks for popping by. 

Keep safe and keep stamping

Fabulous card Zoe and the image is terrific. Sorry for the delay but I finally managed to go up north to visit my family after 22 months. Emotional to say the least. Christine x
