Warm Winter Hugs Cards

Hi Crafty Friends,
I fell in love with this winter Echo Park Paper pad so I made 5 cards with it. The first four are using the Build Your Own Holiday Stash Sketch for January using Penny Black Snowman Hugs Stamp Set and the last one is for the Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #13 Snowflakes using Woodware Winter Gnome and Hero Arts Rays Die.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Which card is your favorite?
A: Me? I love the little girl hugging the snowman

Card #1: Warm Hugs

Card #2: Teddy Bear Hugs

Card #3: Building Snowman Head

Card #4: Let it Snow

Card #5: Gnome Cocoa, Coffee & Marshmallows

Here are the snippets I used for this card....I used pieces from the above 4 cards to create this one!

  1. Meghan, I don't normally like gnomes, but this one is too precious. What a perfect addition to the echopark paper. Thank you for the inspiration. I am going to have to CASE this one. Have a great day! Cheers, Makira

  2. Fun group of cards!
    Cards #1 and 4 are my favorites! I love the cute snowmen!

  3. The first card is my favorite. She LOVES him so much! It's really sweet. But they are all cute.

  4. A paper extravaganza so perfectly done. I did hug a snowman that my hubby made me the first winter in our home. Later I noticed my earring was gone, no luck finding it... until Spring right where the snowman was standing.. imagine that. I love this gnome... dont like the ones with eyes they look like elves to me.

  5. How did you use the die… the die looks so different when you pull the actual die cut plate up?

  6. Fabulous cards and a great way to use up snippets of paper too - thanks for joining us at Christmas Craft Creations

  7. Gorgeous cards and colour scheme - very vibrant and festive. Thank you for joining us at ABC Christmas Challenge xx Lynda/Loopyloo DT

  8. Great set of cards Meghan, It's hard to identify which one you entered for the Snippets Challenge without spending time reading - which we don't always have time for when several cards are in one post. Seems to be card Five though - cute!
