Let it Snowman

Happy Friday!
I hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Are you checking out all the sales & doing Christmas shopping today? If not, it may be a good time to finish up your Christmas cards. Here's a pretty quick one...could also just be for winter. The greeting is another image I had to do surgery on because it originally had a little snowman on top of the S. It just didn't look right w/ the big snowman beside it. Sometimes, I can just mask out the parts I don't want...but in this case I had to actually cut out the little snowman w/ a craft knife. If you're careful, you can put them back together for later use by fitting the pieces back, But if not, just get two of the same image...sort of an heir & a spare!
The big Snowman was colored and fussy cut and I stamped the SNOW once on the red flag and again on white. Then I fussy cut the snow word and paper pieced it. I just used a white gel pen to add a little white to the snowflakes on the red flag. The aqua background was stamped w/ the Interlocking Snow and the tumbled glass ink. A few die cut & punched snowflakes and red gems finished it. The card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great Thanksgiving weekend!

Beautiful, what a great ideal to not use the snowman head and to use the the big snowman.
