Snow Fun for your Birthday!

Good Friday morning everyone!
Heres a cute little snowman card that I
made for my SIL's January birthday.

I used a Double-Dutch fold for this card base.
Since Christmas is over and the New Year has begun,
I chose shades of muted greens with just a touch of red.

The small snowflakes are a Fiskars punch and are decorated
with a small green gemstone.
The silver metallic branches are my favorite MS punch.

The backdrop for the snoman is the "snowman snowflake" from WICO.
This has been cut regular @ 3" and in blackout @ 3 1/4, 3 1/2, and 3 3/4"
It is decorated with just a hint of glitter for more sparkle.

This adorable little snowman starts out as an oval from PS
which has been inked on the edges.
This funky face is a Peachy Keen stamp that has been colored with
markers and pencils.
The winter hat is from WW and is cut @ 2 1/2" with the layers
being embossed with the swiss dots CB folder.
This little guy has also been "popped" for dimension.

The inside of the card opens up to reveal a matted
birthday sentiment using the FY cart and the centerpoint feature.
The snowflakes are repeated from the front and the open green mat
will hold a specail message for the recipient.

This card was Snow Much Fun to make
and I do hope you enjoy it as much as I did designing it.
