Thanks Snow(man) Much!

 I am delighted to be the Guest Designer today at Sweet Sassy Diva's blog.  The theme this week is Thank You cards.  I do not make my own Christmas cards because I send out photo cards.  I do, however, make my own thank you cards.  I typically make snowman cards as I love snowmen!!!
 I used Smiley Cards (for the first time) to create my snowman card.  I put a snowman on my gypsy mat at 3.94 inches.  I copied a second snowman and used Hide Contour to hide the inside cuts.  I flipped the second snowman and stacked it on top of the first snowman.  I added the layers (also at 3.94 inches).  I copied the hat layer twice so I could cut out the mouth in red.  I hid the mouth from the hat, buttons and glasses on the first (black cardstock) and hid the hat, buttons and glasses from the mouth on the second (red cardstock).

 I moved the hats, mouth and scarves to layer 2.  On Layer1, I copied the snowmen two times.  This way I can cut out three from an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of white cardstock.  I tend to make several cards at one time.
 Here are my cards cut out.  I folded them in half while the rest of the pieces were cutting out.
 I copied enough pieces for six cards and grouped them into colors on my gypsy.
 I used black, red, purple and blue cardstock for my pieces.
I put the adhesive on the card (not the hat) as the hat hangs off the card at the top.  This way it won't stick to  your envelope.  I used my Xyron to adhere the other pieces to the snowman.
 I added some stickles to the hat, scarf and the side of the snowman.  I thought about adding a stickle nose, but decided I liked them better without a nose.
My 6 year old son Tanner helped me with the stickles on the snowman body ~ he is such a good helper!

I opted to leave the inside blank as the cards are not very big and I write big!!

****This just in!!!  Sweet Sassy Diva is looking to add to her design team!  If you are looking for an opportunity to guest design 2-3 times a month on her blog, please let her know HERE!!!
