30 Days of Christmas - Day 6

Good day bloggers.

It's our first Sunday together.  This is new to me because I never blog on Sundays; but if you want to be in on my secret, I've been blogging a few days ahead from the time you read this... hehe.  Thank goodness for scheduled blog posts, right? 

It's day 6 and I'm excited to share today's card.  I saw this cute paper pieced snowman on a card (on Pinterest) and thought that I might be able to incorporate it into my next card.  A lot of people have made several versions of this snowman, but I wanted to make mine different which is why I added a hat.  Just by using several punches (from what you might already own) and cutting parts off and gluing parts together, you can make this cute little snowman too!!

For the banner I used Echo Park's "Holly Jolly Christmas" paper pad, and for once in my life I'm so glad it's double sided.  Why?  Because normally I can't decide which side to use (since they're both always so adorable).  This time I was able to use both sides being that the banner die allowed me to cut both pieces in one shot!!  =)

The snowy ground was made by penciling some hills on patterned paper, cutting and distressing the layers. 

I had fun making this card.  You'll see more Christmas kraft cards in this 30 Days of Christmas event, so stay tuned!!
