I used the Snow Day and Sweet Essentials stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create a window card to share with you today. I saw this fantastic snowman card made by Mary Brown and loved the happy snowman and I couldn’t wait to make one of my own. My card design today was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches 110.
I started by stamping the snowman image from the Snow Day stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) on a Soft Sky panel in VersaMark Ink and heat embossing it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Then I stamped the snowman’s buttons, arms and mouth in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and added a Pumpkin Pie nose and a few snowflakes in Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Ink.
The Squares Collection Framelits Dies, Woodgrain Embossing Folder and Soft Suede Core’diations Card Stock from the Neutrals Core’dinations Card Stock pack were used to create the window panel. I sanded the panel with my Stampin’ Sanding Block to create a little color variation.
The sentiment on the banner is from the Sweet Essentials stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) and it was stamped in Real Red ink. I used the Hexagon Punch to create the banner end on the sentiment. I tied a bit on Natural Linen Thread through a Garden Green button from the Regals Designer Buttons pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot to finish the card front.
The inside Whisper White panel was stamped with the sentiment from the Wishing You stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in Real Red ink and the snowflakes were stamped in Soft Sky ink.

Now that is cute!
Thanks so much Barb. It was fun to make too!! 🙂
The way you’ve posed the snowman, he looks like he’s thrilled about something – maybe the falling snow? 🙂 Your card is adorable! I’m glad I clicked on the thumbnail at FMS for a closer look.
Thanks! I think that he’s thrilled about the snowfall. 🙂
This is adorable! He looks so happy that it’s winter! Thanks for joining us at FMS!
LOVE this! What a super cute take on the sketch! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
Thanks so much for stopping by to leave me a comment!
Adorable snowman, I can just feel his joy! Very clever and fun card the recipient is sure to enjoy immensely! A well deserved win on FMS!
Thank you!! I’ll have to go peek at the FMS site, I hadn’t seen it yet. 🙂
This is so adorable!
Thank you! 🙂
Love this card! I was wondering if you stamped the snowman and then cut to squares or the other way. Thanks!
Thanks so much!! I cut the squares first, placed the Soft Suede layer over the Soft Sky layer and made little pencil marks in the corners of the squares so I knew where to stamp the snowman. 🙂
