oh you woolies, you're so jovial

So today I thought, "Let's make a card. What kind of card should I make?" I looked out my window to think and the glaring brightness of the snow made it glaringly obvious I should make a winter card! Ding, ding, ding - we have a winner.

So I grabbed my tiny stack of winter embellishments and pulled out a pack of stickers by Basic Grey called "Jovial Woolies." Dang, they are jovial!

I picked out my favorite and grabbed my bowl of 4x6 scraps and found some paper to coordinate. Then I grabbed a kraft 4x5.5 card base and about 10 minutes later, I had this...

I had to clip it together to stay closed for the pic!

I cut the center out with my trimmer and then used my exacto knife to make a white frame out of polka dot cardstock. I wanted to add some snowflakes inside but didn't want them to show through the front so I masked off an area and stamped. I used some watercolor paper to make a snow scene inside. 

I love how happy this little guy is!

I've already mailed him to a friend so someone will be getting a surprise Friday or Saturday. 

Winter greetings to you!! Thanks for stopping by!
