I can't believe I am getting a card on before lunch. The 2" of snow we got here yesterday would not make a snowman, so I was very happy to see this challenge.
I was already working on this birthday card for a friend who watches our dog for us sometimes and had the snowman cut out, but was trying to figure out how to get the dog stamped on the front. I finally opted for 'inside' as part of the signature. This man LOVES Rufus, our dog. Anyway I finished the card this morning and I get to mail it on time.
I used another scrap of my spotted dp that works so well for snow and then layered a negative of a Spellbinders Petite Scalloped oval on top. I glued the cutout, colored snowman inside on the bottom and let the top hang free. Then I added snow on the bottom and flakes in the air. It's always more fun when you are making the card for a particular person.

Carol, your Kraft and white bg for your snowman is great. Love your use of the dotted DP and snowflakes. The torn panel of white Swiss dot gives the feeling of snow. The "sketchy" snowman has a wonderful artistic feeling.
