A new one to try

Here I go again with the snowflakes....(sorry to you Northern buddies.)
This is my new favorite kind of card (at least for the next few weeks till I find something else.)   I got the idea from Kim Score at Paper Punch Addiction.  She calls it an accordion peeker card and the measurements are HERE.  I followed Kim's measurements but I have to admit I did everything else quite differently from her directions, but the results are about the same.   I don't know if you can see them or not but there are little suspended snowflakes dangling around the scene that didn't show up well in the photo.  And to give the snowmen arms I used floral wire & floral tape.

The card is 6x6 and would be fairly easy to modify to different dimensions.   I've got another one in the works already.  It smooshes down pretty flat too, right around 1/8" thick.
The stamps I used are by Lawn Fawn and the set is called Making Frosty Friends.  Let me know if you've already made one of these cards or if you plan to make one.  I would love to pop over and see it.
Have a great week everyone! OH yeah, and speaking of weeks... my blogaversary is just days away so keep an eye out for a little celebration this week.

  3. LOVE IT!!!! I decorate with snowmen around the holidays . . . of course here in Minnesota there are some years that we can build the first snowman outside by Halloween, and the last one on Easter, so then my snowmen decor INSIDE fits for most of the year!
