Ready, Get Set, Snow!

I had snow much fun creating this card. And it just so happened we got our first real snow the same day. Not much—just a dusting, but snow nonetheless.

Actually, my inspiration for this card was the desire to use our Glimmer Paper for my class. Since it's a large class, I didn't want use a very big piece for each person, which limited me somewhat. I love the result!

The trick to cutting that perfect triangle is to use a square punch. You can't really see it in this can of the card, but the snowman wears a coat of Moonlight Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink—just over his snowy face and body, not on his scarf and hat. And I can even use this design for one of my December or January birthday cards.
