Snowman Valentine



I needed to make a couple of these cards for my  little grandsons to have for Valentine's Day. Aren't they the cutest things? I found this on Pinterest by Julie Aston. She had cased a cased a card from Pegmac71. I know both of these ladies from Splitcoaststampers. They did a fabulous job. Of course,  I've changed mine up a bit.

The Stampin'Up! Top Note Die was used as a base. I used the Stampin'Up! owl punch for the eyes, nose, and mouth. I hand cut the rim of the hat. The top of the hat was embossed with a Cuttlebug houndstooth embossing folder and the bottom part with a Cuttlebug herringbone folder.

I am using the PTI Heart Prints stamp set  and matching die cut for the large heart. It is inked with Stampin'Up! Tempting Turquoise. The sentiment is Stampabilities/I Love You.

My paper is Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler and Tempting Turquoise cardstock. The base is PTI white cs.

Oh, this is darling! I wish I had some little kiddos that I could make this for! Hmm..I'm thinking my 22 and 20 year old might be be getting this! Thanks for the inspiration!

Hoping these frigid temps are going away and not finding us again. My daughter just got home from work at 2 pm today. She had been at work, UAB Hospital, since yesterday at 6:30 am. Stay warm!
