Sugar Nellie Snowman Easel Card

I like snowmen. Round ones, cute ones, short ones, tall ones, cartoons and vintage. So when I saw this tall, somewhat vintage snowman from Sugar Nellie I couldn't resist. The bonus of a birdhouse really clinched the deal.

I made this card for my nephew and his family. The scrapbook paper has a great sketch of two boys on a sled and when you lift the top card the whole image is visible. I don't remember where I got the paper, but it is such a pretty blue. The poinsettia is cut from K&Company dp with the Nestabilities dies and a large clear rhinestone in the center. The "door stop" is three sparkly snow balls I found at Hobby Lobby.

Here's a close-up of the adorable snow man. Love that slouch hat! I colored him with Copics, using earthy colors for an old-fashioned look.

Just a quick post tonight. I've been coloring all afternoon and have a couple of cards to put together. I'm glad you stopped by and hope you come back often! Christmas is only a couple of weeks away and I have a feeling my cards will be just under the wire! I don't dare send out anything but handmade! You all know how that is, right?
