Christmas Snowmen Use It Up

 I have a bunch of these old cards that I've been trying to use up.  I always find them a bit challenging to use.  Here are three different cards I made while using up my snowpeople cards.  You'll probably notice that one of the ways I handle these cards is to cover a large portion of it with a plain piece of paper or cardstock.  This helps make the card less "busy".

This first card (above) features a snowman printed from clip art I found on Scrapbook Flair.  The snowflakes came from Hot Off the Press, the white borders were outline stickers - probably Dazzles from Hot Off the Press.  The double-matted greeting was designed and cut with my Silhouette.

Next up is a card that also uses clip art found on Scrapbook Flair (the snowman in the snowglobe).  The border was cut and embossed with my edgeabilities dies from Spellbinders, and the greeting and mat were designed and cut on my Silhouette.

This last card once again has clipart from Scrapbook Flair and a sentiment cut with my Silhoutte.  The focal is matted with a blue piece of cardstock that was cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities die.  That is then matted on a white circle with a punched design around the edges made with one of my multi-punches.
