Snowman Birthday Card

Hello and Happy Wednesday everyone!  I am so excited that the work week is halfway over!  :)  I had a really difficult time making a snowman birthday card (not sure why)...  I actually like the way the card turned out, so I was glad that I challenged myself...  Making birthday cards makes me think about all of the birthdays that are coming up: my sister's, my niece's, and my *gulp* 30th birthday next month!!!  I am actually excited about turning 30, well...  we'll see how I feel about it next month!  Hee hee...  :)  Anywho, here is my take on a winter birthday card.

FCCB- use snowflake or snowman
My Craft Spot- "snow much fun" use a snowflake or snowman
Cuttlebug Spot- winter
Perfect Sentiments- birthday card using embossing resist
The Paper Variety- use a fan fold embellishment (I think these wrappers count)
She's a Sassy Lady- birthday card
Getting Cricky- let it snow, use embossing
Crafting for All Seasons- snowflake or snowman
Birthday Sundaes- use the photo for inspiration

A2 sized card
Winter Frolic- all snowmen cut at 2.29"
Sweet Treats- cupcake wrappers cut at 2.06"
Cuttlebug- seeing spots
Peachy Keen Stamps- winter face assortment
Sentiment, computer generated:  Curlz MT font at size 20
A la Mode- sparkle embossing powder
Cupcake and snowflake stamps
MS ink- ocean
Prismacolor pencils for the noses and cheeks

*I accordion folded the cupcake wrappers by scoring them on my MS scoring board and then folding them.  I attached tabs to them on my Gypsy by using a rectangle from George and Basic Shapes.  I was then able to fold the tabs behind the snowmen to keep them in their wrappers.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!  Bye y'all!!!  :)

Congrats again & so well deserved! Just came from Perfect Sentiments & your Snowman card made the Perfect 3. You rock or should I say go snow but please do not send any of the white stuff to Central TX. We have had enough rain to soak the ground that I have pools in my backyard & that's not counting the real swimming pool.
