Gift Tag Snowman

It's just days 'til Christmas, and though I've been making plenty of Christmas cards this season, I didn't make any for my girls until yesterday.  You already saw the 12 YO's card ("Inspired by a Shower Curtain"), and now here is the one for my 9 YO:

I grabbed my color inspiration from Off The Wall Craftiness:


I made two of these cards in no time at all, because the snowman (which already boasted the challenge colors) is a gift tag saved from last year, and I had two of them.  I did nothing to him, except thread some baker's twine from The Twinery and green metallic cording through the tag hole.  Easy, easy! 


I hope you are not tired of seeing my same Martha Stewart punched snowflakes over and over again.  For Christmas, I asked for a different snowflake punch!  These glimmery ones were punched out of Cameo Coral to try to match the snowman's accessories.

There's another card I'll be posting shortly, and tomorrow will be the reveal of my BIG NEWS!!  I am super-excited!  :)

Paper:  Real Red, white by PTI, Cameo Coral
