Easel Snowman Christmas Card

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Here's hoping you had a wonderful day!  It was wicked icy today.  If I had a pair of ice skates, I could skate across my entire driveway!  LOL! But of course I don't have skates, and  even if I did I wouldn't be able to make it 2 feet down the driveway! LOL! I would be smushed in the ground just like my snowman on this easel card! j/k...

This is an easel card.  You can find the tutorial for this easy card at Splitcoaststampers in the Resources section.  I used Recollections Kraft cardstock from Michaels for the base of the card.  The green and red from Stampin' Up.  The white is just white Georgia Pacific cardstock from Walmart.  I used circle punches to make the three sections of the snowman and used dimensional adhesive in between.  I tied a tiny strip of bakers twine and attached it between two layers to make a little scarf.  The eyes and mouth were just drawn on with a black sharpie marker.  "Merry Christmas" is stamped on the white cardstock and the red cardstock is punched from the Word Window Punch from Stampin' Up.  I used a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to emboss the snowflakes on the white cardstock.  Then I used the red distress ink from Tim Holtz's winter ink colors around the perimeter.  The ribbon is grosgrain ribbon from Michaels.  I used the Swirls Cuttlebug Embossing folder on the red cardstock under the snowman.  The scallops are punched using the Fiskars Scallop Sentiment Border Punch.  
This was my first easel card attempt.  I was a little intimidated to try them; I don't know why because it was one of the simpler cards I've made.  I really could have made more but I only made three of them.  Anyway, if you haven't tried these yet, you must!  They are easy, fun and you can produce these assembly line style!  Thanks for stopping by for a visit and if you have any questions, please let me know!  Hugs!
