"Snowman" Card with Fun Fold Tutorial



If you're still making Christmas cards and need design ideas, I've got a few more tutorials coming your way this week! As for me, I've got about 30 more cards to make and take to the mail this afternoon, then my Christmas cards are done (over 100 of them). Fortunately, I start making cards for Christmas once our Holiday Catalogue begins in September, so that really helps. Our October "Winter Woods" Paper Pumpkin kit - which was gorgeous - also helped save me a ton of time with its pre-cut cards. Nonetheless, I'm still short about 30 cards, so I'm going to pour myself another cup of coffee, put on my Holiday Hallmark Music Channel (Sirius radio) and get to stampin'! 

Have a great day and I hope you enjoy this fun snowman tutorial! (Psst - give this card a try for other occasions too!)
