Wrapping Paper Snowman

Hello dear friends.  I hope the new year is off to a good start for you and
you're not sick of Christmas cards.


Today I'm playing at the Jingle Belles Challenge
NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENTS
a punny way of saying use some of that Christmas wrapping paper.

Fortunately the wrapping paper was still out and the bit of leftover
Snowman paper was perfect for a card.  It even had lines to help cut him out.

I added the snowman to a snippet of white and found a little frame
that was also a leftover.  

I thought he would like some snow so I used my favorite snowy embossing folder.

For a bit of contrast, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of bright blue
and heat embossed it.

Quick and fun!

also adding to
since I have a few snippets here.

and 
with my leftover Christmas wrapping paper.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

I'm not sick of Christmas cards because I'm still making them, Bonnie. That snowman is a cutie and I think you should send him to Just Us Girls where the word is "Leftovers".

I love Christmas cards and this is adorable. It's a great way to use up snippets of wrapping paper and it made a cute card. I'm trying to catch up commenting and I love both the bokeh card and that gorgeous silver star.

That paper couldn’’t be more perfect for a card, Bonnie! How cute this is. I’m not sick of Christmas cards either. I don’t think that will ever happen.

So adorable, Bonnie! The sentiment in bright blue stands out and matches the background perfectly. Love the embossed snowy background. You should enter this in the Snippets Playground and Just Us Girls Leftovers challenges. xx

This is so adorable, Bonnie! Great way of upcycling the Christmas wrapping paper. The bright red and blue pop against the white background. I love the popped up stitched frame and the dry embossed falling snow. The Pacific Point sentiment strip looks very refreshing and the shade of blue matches the background of the snowman. Thanks for sharing, my friend!

This is adorable! Great use of the leftover wrapping paper and frame. Love the embossed background you paired with it. Thanks for playing along with us at JUGS!

JosieD said...

Clever idea for using wrapping paper! And those special "Bonnie touches" -- snow EF, stitched squares dies and picking up the blue with the sentiment b'grd. I made some cards for next year a few days ago while I was in the mood and had the supplies out. Got behind this year and lesson learned -- not happening again!

lauren bergold said...

He's a top quality wrapping paper snowman Bonnie, so bright and a really handsome one..lol. I love the stitched square frame and the falling snow embossing in the background looks great too. x

Jo Manna said...

ADORABLE, such a happy snowman. Love this rich vibrant colours, wow, I'm in love with this guy :D
Repeating the blue strip for the sentiment just gives this gorgeous piece so much balance. Like I said ADORABLE! xx
