A Simple Snowman

On this hot and humid day in Massachusetts - what better card to make than one with a snowman on a snowy field?! 
In the never ending quest to get all of my Christmas cards done before the season, I'm joining in on two  Christmas blog challenges linked below with my Simple Snowman Christmas design!
I used several dies on my card today -  the scalloped landscape edge is a die from Ali Express, the snowman (with Tiny Twinkle eyes and buttons) is from PTI In the Meadow die set, the tree is from Tiny Town Holiday Yard Die set also from PTI, and the red Merry Christmas is actually from a Christmas Tag die set from Impression Obsession (I cut the top part off!)  The hillside is popped up on foam dots over the tree.  Everything on the scene is cut out of watercolor paper to give a little texture - adhered to a white cardstock base.

Here are the challenges I'm linking my card to that inspired my design:
No stamps allowed!

Paper:  White, Pure Poppy - PTI, Water color paper - Canson.
Accessories:  Scalloped edge die - Ali Express (China), tree die - Tiny Town Holiday Yard Die Set - PTI, snowman die - In the Meadow Die set - PTI, Merry Christmas Tag dies - Impression Obsession, Tiny Twinkles - Taylored Expressions, foam dots, glue pen.

Oh I do love white on white and that pop of red looks fabulous against the white background. The snowman is such a cutie too! Guess what? We have had hot and humid here today and they say it might last for another couple of days... staying in crafting for me then! Hugs, Anne xx
