Once again I'm not trying to rush winter, but for those of you anxious to get your Christmas cards underway, let's have a look at this snowman card. The main image is from Stampendous and we have added the die-cut tree that he is holding. The buckles really add a nice touch for a ribbon embellishment. If you are tired of trying to find metal buckles on the market, the buckle set is from Joy Crafts. You have the versatility of four shapes that can also be embossed. The buckle on the ribbon has not been embossed, and the buckle on the little oval tag has been embossed so that you can see the difference. The background embossing is a favourite folder of  mine from Leane Creatif. I love the fact that it is large enough to emboss a 5 1/2 inch square background


The tree in the snowman's hand is from the set below. This is a set of two dies. We ended up using the largest tree from the cluster for the front of the card, and the smaller two from the cluster inside on the verse panel. We didn't actually used the largest tree in the package which measures 1 inch by 2.9 inches high. This die-set is great for creating smaller forests.
