Winter is finally here, it was 17 degrees yesterday when I woke up, brrrr!

Yeti Holiday Card

To get in the mood for this frigid weather I made this adorable, abominable snowman card using stamps from Lawn Fawn.

Here’s how…..

Supplies- Light blue, pale blue, tan and white cardstocks; Lawn Fawn” Yeti” and “Critters in the Snow” (snowflakes) stamp sets; blue and black inks, jute string, alcohol markers, foam tape

- First cut a piece of light blue cardstock in half and fold for the card base

-Next cut a piece of white cardstock to 5 1/4″ x 4″ and cut a pale blue piece to 5″ long and using your scissors cut a wave shape across the top

- Next trim a tan piece of cardstock to 5″ x 3 3/4″ and randomly stamp snowflakes with blue ink. Tip: Place several clear snowflake stamps onto the same block to make stamping quicker. Next stamp the words in black.

- Adhere the tan piece of cardstock on top of the white then adhere the blue wave piece, wrap a 24″ piece of hemp string around the bottom, tie in a knot and fray the edges. Adhere this to the cardstock base.

- On white cardstock using black ink stamp the yeti and color with alcohol markers and cut out. Mount him to your card using foam tape.
