There's a "Shape Up for the Holidays" challenge over at Jingle Belles. It's a fun challenge which gets us thinking about making Christmas cards that are not square or rectangular. I decided to cut my card into the shapely form of snowmen. I had fun creating them, probably too much fun! I just couldn't stop adding detail. I started by folding a piece of white cardstock (accordion style) then cut the cardstock into the shape of a snowman. I used up bits and pieces of patterned papers and cardstocks to create little vests, small bow ties and hats. To ground the snowman, I added a torn white cardstock snowbank, adding a bit of highlight to it with chalk. Next I cut letters for the sentiment and tucked them into the snowbank. Finally, I made two brooms and stuck one on each side. They really helped to "pull" the card together.
