Christmas isn’t complete without snowmen featured on some cards, and Snow Wonder is the perfect bundle for making this happen. You’ll find Snow Wonder on the retiring list, but only because the “bundle” is retiring, not the separate stamp and die sets. So, if you’d like to add this to your collection, now is a good time to order it with the 10% discount as a bundle.

I began by stamping the Snow Wonder snowman in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and using the Snow Time Die for cutting. The scarf and hat were easily colored with Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends.

Winter Joy


The Snowman is holding “joy,” created with a Joy Die , Silver Foil and a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet. The Joy Dies are on the retiring list with a 30% discount. Check out the complete set in my Product List below; three words with three layering possibilities.


The snowman’s background was created with Ornate Layers Dies, current and at regular price. I embossed the smaller, Whisper White layer with one of my favorite embossing folders, Winter Snow. It’s on the retiring list at 50% off, so get it now before it sells out.

I used the larger Ornate Layers Die to cut a pattern of Regals 6X6 Designer Paper, and layered this on a Thick Whisper White card base.


Before gluing the layers together, I rounded the four corners of the card base with the Detailed Trio Punch, a current punch in the Annual Catalog.

The final touch was a glistening bow, created with Metallic Mesh Ribbon, which is not retiring.
