Holiday Mini Bailout #4: Snowman

So here we are....Day 4 of my Holiday Mini Bailout.  Each day until the 19th I will post a simple mini card measuring 4"x3.5". These are 12 easy cards that I put together quickly when I realised I hadn't made enough! In the same boat?  Don't fret! You might find a couple of ideas in my hurried / harried creations and save yourself some hassle. And you have 12 days' worth of ideas! Forget elaborate sketches and layers. I'm keepin' 'em simple and using up my hoarded stash.

Going with an icy blue theme. The papers is from Doodlebugs "Boy" collection. The twine is also by Doodlebug. To make my Chocolate Baroque greeting pop, I layered it on polar blue CS. 

The little snowman is from Waltzingmouse's "A Cottage Christmas". I coloured him with SN markers, Did some layering with Spellbinders Labels 4, added a couple of bling and ... voila!

I left the inside plain...because...there are super-simple cards after all! These cards are perfect for "conveyor-belt" style production before you know it there'll be half a dozen sitting on your craft table!

I'm playing with Use It Tuesday #45 "Its All About Christmas"; Delicious Doodles #14 "Anything Christmas with Blue" and Raise the Bar #123 "Blues and Whites"

So glad you joined on Day 4. Pop by tomorrow for Holiday Mini Bailout Day 5  when I feature another popular Christmas character! See ya!
