Come rain, snow or shine! Snowman card for the Post office

I really like my post office.  It's near by and the workers are knowledgeable and never grumpy.  I hear lots of horror stories of misinformed and nasty postal workers around the continent on various forums.  I feel lucky that mine are very steadfast.  I sometimes even get service with a smile too!

I had an extra paper die cut snowman.  (This one was my prototype.)  I attached him to a card, which is also made from scraps of another project, and I will be bringing him to the post office on my next trip.  I happened to get a large custom order from my iCraft shop, so I want to bring in my snowman when I show up with a big fat parcel, proud as a hen with a barn full o' chicks.

I have used this paper from Jillibean Soup on several cards.  I LOVE its neutrality and it matches Bazzill Fawn cardstock to a T!  When I give cards to people I don't closely know, I like to keep it non-religious.  (You never know who does and does not celebrate actual Christmas.)  I was not sure how the detailed, elegant paper would pair with my whimsical paper die cut snowman.  I think, with the whimsical stamped sentiment (from Michael's), it turned out nice!  In fact, I might make a couple more.  I still haven't finished sending Christmas cards.  Just like last year, the last batch will certainly be late.  (Better late than never though!)


  1. Pretty card! Your snowman is so cute and sure to brighten the postal workers' day! ^.^

  2. This is just adorable. That snowman is so cute on the kraft. Lovely bg.
