Snow Much Fun

Did I ever mention that I love snowmen? I have a whole section of my home dedicated to snowmen when I decorate for Christmas :). What's not to love about snowmen? I love the snowman images in Snow Much Fun, so I pulled that set out last night and water colored it with my Watercolor Wonder Crayons and my blender pens. I love to water color! It's so relaxing! There is a lot of sparkle on this card, but unfortunately, the camera didn't pick it up when I photographed it (rainy day here so drab and dreary out and no bright sunlight). I added Dazzling Details glitter glue to the snowman and the little Christmas Tree, and of course, to the snow :). The snowflake is die cut from glitter card stock. I stamped a few buttons from the Button, Button stamp set. I punched the center holes of the button with a 1/16" circle punch and the circle punch from Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack.
 I added a few buttons to the inside that I made with punches that were inspired by the Button, Button stamp set. Are these buttons not the cutest thing?!
 To make the button, punch the little flower out from the Boho Blossoms punch, ink around the edge, and then punch a 3/4" circle and ink around the edge again. Glue the flower to the circle. Mark the center to punch the holes (1/16" circle punch) for the button, (I used a stamped button from Button, Button for a template to mark where the holes should go), and viola! Cute buttons!
Have a GREAT day today!!

Blessings!

Awesome card and I love your "buttons" what a great idea. I too am a big fan of snowmen and when mine come out they stay out until spring.

Thanks for sharing,
Kim
