When I saw these ziplock storage containers in the store it looked as though it was a kit to make a snowman. Well I fell for it and bought it only to find that it was indeed not a kit at all. I had to pull from my button stash to make the face and body. I hand drew a carrot nose and cut it out. I am so bummed that you cant see the felt stovepipe hat crafted by my husband but trust me it was good. The best part is the containers were filled with white cheese balls that were perfect and yummy. I gave the gift to my friend who loved it but I will think twice before falling for the advertising tricks.

I know it is not even Halloween yet and I am posting a Christmas card but it is the 25th of the month and that is what I committed to do. Today’s card is a super cute and fun punch art snowman resembling Olaf from the fabulous Disney movie, Frozen. I have seen lots of different versions of this guy so this is my version using an abundance of Stampin Up punches, and dies Oh My! Lots of pieces to create this guy but love how cute he turned out!
Every year when I make my Christmas cards, I always include a snowman in my Christmas card lineup. For today’s card I used up some very old snowflake DSP for the background and then I created the cutest snowman ever using the Stampin Up envelope punch board #133774 and various other Stampin Up punches and embellishments to decorate my snowman. This card turned out so cute and was the hit at my Christmas club workshop!
I love this card and it was one we made in my 6 six sided workshop. Each snowman is a window but the bottom snowman is a window that is on the insided of the card when opened. The snowman’s eyes are punched from the Owl Builder punch #118074, the nose is from the triple heart punch (retired) and then hand cut to form the nose. The mouth is hand drawn. The BRR sentiment is from a super old Stampin Up stampset and the background DSP is also retired but any seasonal DSP would work well.
I loved how it turned out and wish it would snow in Ohio so I can add snow pictures!
I made this telescoping snowman card that folds open an builds the snowman. The mechanics behind this card is in the mini brads #122941 and the rest is pretty self explanitory. However if you need more help just post a comment and I will offer assistance. I loved this little guy so much that I used it as inspiration for a scrapbook page that I will post tomorrow.
