There's no friends, like SNOW friends!

Hey, did I tell you that I'm a Whipper Snapper Featured Designer?
Gimme a W, Gimme a S, Gimme a F, Gimme a D, whadaya got? Smileys Smileys
Ok, so I'm excited about it, I just can't help it!! Well, ya'll know how much I LOVE SU Kraft CS right? So, I decided to try out this little snowman stamped directly onto the Kraft too! Don't ya just love that white on the Kraft? Wowzer! This little guy is from the newly released set from Whipper Snapper Designs, "Spirit of Christmas" by Anna Wight.

I printed the computer generated sentiment directly onto the card base first and then stamped my snowman beside it. I colored the stamped image with my Lyra pencils and added a piece of SU Real Red CS that I punched on one side with the SU scalloped border punch. I finished the card with some red and white gingham ribbon tied in a fluffy bow. Whadaya think? Isn't he cute?

Well, I couldn't stop there.... so I decided to whip out another paper mache' find from Michael's and try this image on that too! This time I used a small square box and stamped the snowman onto the lid. I colored him with my Lyra pencils as well and added the same gingham ribbon to the sides. Wouldn't this be perfect for a gift card or cash? I know, how about saying, "here's some COOL cash for you!" {he-he}

Ok, leave a comment below and let me know what you think. Oh and yup, there's still more to come!! So be sure to stop back by!
Have a great day!
