Let it SNOW-MEN!

It’s time for another Challenge Chicks Challenge and this month Jeanne chose the theme of snowmen!  Fun!  I made 2 cards to share today…the first is super easy, a CAS card, and didn’t actually have any stamping involved.

I simply hand cut a rounded top to my card base, then hand cut a nose, hat, and scarf.  I added some faux stitching and two buttons…that’s it!

For my second card, I followed this past week’s tutorial on Splitcoast for a Flip Down Stack Card.  Pictured is the card with the stack folded up and also with the stack after it flipped down.  I used the Paper Smooches Warm Hearts stamp set.  Instead of using a photo turn or magnetic closure, I used sticky-back velcro on the tab.

The hearts and trees were paper pieced.

I used the same snowman for all three frames…just stamped him in different directions…

Now go check out what the other chicks created!
