Colorful Snowman Card

Though it's still July, it's never too early to make a snowman card! This card was really a challenge for me, actually I was attempting to combine four challenges but ended up with three.
Wednesday Color Throwdown: red, kiwi and turquois
Just Christmas and Birthday cards: Bday or Christmas card using sketch
Pink Elephant Challenge: make a card using stars and strips of paper or ribbon
I also wanted to do the Flutterby challenge this week which was to use button and ribbon but I missed the part about needing to have a butterfly on the card as well. Don't think that would work with the whole Christmas theme!

The kiwi color in the photo looks more brown that it does in real life. I used my Cricut to cut the snowman circles and the stars.



  1. Really cute card! It made me long for snow since it's almost 100 degrees here in Houston every day for a month!

  2. Look at you go with the Christmas cards. I always say I'm going to do my Christmas cards early, but yet, never really get around to it until October or November. This is really a great card and I love these colors.

    Funny how we always wish for cooler weather, but complain when it's

  3. Good job on your card Lori. I like the idea of combining one card for multiple challenges.

  4. GREAT Christmas card!! Love how you used the colors! Thanks for playing the Throwdown!

  5. Hi Lori, Great card love the snowmen and the ribbon is realy cool:)
    Thanks for your kind comment on my card, you asked about the stamp i used it's a smirk stamp they are manufactured by Dovecraft and distributed by Trimcraft, i have both sets of smirk clear stamps with this image in among them all, i bought this set after already buying the wooden rubber one on its own and i have put that one and a couple more into my blog candy.
