Jolly Bingo Bits Snowman Card

I'm a bit late in posting tonight. It was such a busy day. Why is the day after a holiday so stressful? I think it's all that catching up you have to do to get back in your regular routine! It is for me anyway!

In my quest for our Christmas card for this year I am still playing around. I really thought I was going to go with the embossed snowflakes in the corner and the "Season's Greetings" one I made a week or so ago. But I'm not sure I am liking that one as much. I think I'm feeling guilty about not having any layers on it. It's just too simple for me.

This card is one that is up for our possible Christmas card. I do like it and it is simple enough to make. I'm not crazy about the idea of making 390 white circles and 390 colored ones. I have 130 cards to make so I will keep this one on the list of possibilities.

I used the "Jolly Bingo Bits" snowman. That set is FULL of fun little images. Like I had said before, I didn't buy the "Bingo Card" image. I had no intentions of making a game with these cuties. I have lots of ideas for these images and I hope I get to use each and every one of them in this set!

The words used here are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. A set I am sure getting a LOT of use out of too!

My card base is Marina Mist and I used Whisper White card stock. I stamped my snowman in StazOn and the snowflakes (which are from the "Jolly Bingo Bits" set) are stamped in Marina Mist. I added a piece of Marina Mist satin ribbon, it was just what the card needed.

Oh and don't forget the pearls! I did tape those little dots under the "Merry Christmas" before I stamped them on the card. I added a little strip of pearls under it. And I also gave the center snowman pearl buttons. Like that is going to happen on my snowman this winter! Pearls on a snowman!! TOO funny! And that is it, pretty simple and quick too! If you aren't making a bunch of them that is!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
