Snowman Magic, Penguin Place, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Merry Christmas. I usually show the Christmas card I sent out in December but I didn't make them all the same this year. I used some I posted here and some I had left over from last year.  And today I made my last Christmas card for the year. I chose a simple one because I don't have much time to play today!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Very Vanilla card sock. My card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. 

I took a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Lights Aglow" 6" x 6" stack and cut it to 5" x 2". Then I took a piece of Soft Succulent card stock and cut a layer measuring 5-1/4" x 2-1/4" and I taped the DSP to the layer and I taped those two pieces to the front of the card about 1/4" from the top, left and bottom.

The "Lights Aglow" package has some fun pieces in it. One was the circle of snowflakes. I cut it to measure 3" x 3".  I thought about putting a greeting inside but decided I wanted to play with the "Snowman Magic" set one last time.  Though I probably could play with that one until January 3rd when it retires, it's a winter set, not so much Christmas.  We'll see!!

I die cut two snowmen, one for the front and one for the back. I die cut the face and saved the nose. I took my Basic Black marker and colored where the eyes and mouth would be on the solid snowman. Then I colored the nose using my Pumpkin Pie marker. The arms were die cut and colored using the Bronze Blends pen. I glued the arms to the solid snowman and then glued the other snowman on top. I added the nose.

The had and scarf were die cut. I used Basic Black for the hat and Daffodil Delight for the scarf. I also cut a very thin strip of Daffodil Delight for the band on the hat. I glued the band in place and then glued the hat to the snowman's head. I glued the scarf in place.

I set the square piece in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals. Then I added the snowman using Dimensionals as well. 

The words are from the "Penguin Place" set and were stamped using Soft Succulent ink.

I die cut 6 snowflakes and glued them in place on the front of the card. A crystal rhinestone was added to the center of each one and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and kind of sad that I'm done making Christmas cards for the year.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I appreciate you stopping in to see what I've made each day,
