…a PoP of SNoW...

It had been a while since I peeked at the PaPerSMooCHeS  
blog and the were having a challenge that seemed easy enough to play along with :)

...since I was already stewing about this

... I did the OBViOuS and combined them :)

The red and white combo as well as the snowflakes really drew my attention in the inspiration photo…and one of my goof friend got me the most AMaZinG set of PaPeR SMooCHeS snowflake dies that hadn't been played with yet…SHaMeFuL…a situation that DeFiNiTeLY needed to be remedied :)

I started off cutting several sets of snowflakes to make the background paper for my card...the aqua accents were an obvious choice since it's my FaV color combo…but I'm not really sure where the black focal panel came's kind of a weird choice..

…but I think it works...

I LoVE how the SWeeT PaPeR SMooCHeS snowman just pops.
I added some ribbon, buttons, AND twine…it felt good…my last several cards have been missing ALL of those things and have felt a little NaKeD to me…
All card stock is Papertrey and and the patterned paper is aMuse…except the big white dot on the snowman…I'm not sure where that's from…it was just a small random piece 

Here's the envelope…

Thanks for LooKinG!
Have an AWeSoME Saturday


  1. Your envelope is as wonderful as your card! Love the idea of the snowman against the black. He really does POP! I don't think I would have ever considered the colour combination you chose - just wouldn't have crossed my mind - but I think I would be missing out as this WORKS!! Love how you have done the buttons and twine too. Gosh, it is just a super card! :)

  2. Love this sweet, sweet card and envelope combo! The mint and black work so well with the red and white! I love the snowflake dies and I am glad that they got to see some action!! I am so glad that you shared this card with this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge! Thanks for playing along!

  3. So you were 'stewing' about us, huh???;) Cute, CUTE and cheery card! Love the addition of the aqua, and I love the chalkboard look! And, wow...the envelope is awesome, too! Thanks so much for playing along with us!
