{Paper Smooches} Holiday Cheer


Kim shared this card on the Paper Smooches Blog yesterday. I combined three stamp sets to create this scene. The main sentiment and faint 'fa la la la la' are from Christmas Sampler, the snowman and snowflakes are from Warm Hearts and the hat is from Chilly Chums. I used polka dotted paper for the background, cut three layers of rolling hills and assembled the layers. Then I stamped the snowflakes and light singing of 'fa la la la la' in the background, paper pieced the snowman and adhered him with foam tape. Isn't this the most adorable little snowman? My son says he looks like a marshmallow he wants to eat. LOL
