Happy Monday.  Hope your week is off to a good beginning.  Today I’m sharing the make ‘n take, A Snowman Merry Christmas, from the recent Stamping Bingo.  The Snowman Season Bundle along with the coordinating Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper pair beautifully to create the card.  The Snowman Season Bundle contains the Snowman Season Stamp Set and the coordinating Snowman Builder Punch.  Do you notice the sparkle of the snowman on the card?  It’s actually cut from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I just love it when designer series paper contains images that coordinate with a punch or die.

Steps for recreating the Snowman Merry Christmas card:
  • Start with a standard card base of Coastal Cabana cardstock. 
  • Cut a 5-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ piece of the striped paper from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper. 
  • With the snowflake stamp from the Snowman Season Stamp Set, randomly stamp snowflakes on the Designer Series Paper using Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Pad.  Then, layer onto a 5-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Real Red cardstock. 
  • Next, wrap a piece of Real Red 3/8″ Cotton Ribbon around lower portion of card and tie a knot. 
  • Attach to the Coastal Cabana card base with adhesive. 
  • With the Snowman Builder Punch, cut the glitter snowman from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Notice also that one of the Designer Series Papers has the hat that matches with the punch.  Also, punch the hat.  Use a scrap of Basic Black cardstock to cut the snowman arms.  Assemble the snowman using glue dots and attach to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut the sentiment and the Coastal Cabana scalloped oval using the Layering Ovals Dies.  Adhere the sentiment to the scalloped oval and attach to the card front over the Real Red ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

See how easy it is to make a card with coordinating stamps, punches and paper!  Hope you will give it a try.  The Snowman Season Bundle and coordinating Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper is great for Christmas.  But don’t stop using it at Christmas!  It’s also great for Winter Themed cards and crafts.
