5 Minute Monday ~ Snowman Magic Seasonal Card


I was a little stumped when it came to today's post.

It definitely feels like fall in the air here...

So much so, that it felt like I should for sure be creating a card with fall leaves or pumpkins while sipping a pumpkin spice coffee wrapped in a warm fuzzy blanket.

Or some scary little ghosts or witches in preparation for Halloween. However, as I have said before, I don't overdue it with Halloween cards as it's not an occasion I send many cards out for. 

I do have a few Halloween treat holders coming up as I think pretty much everyone will have some cute little trick or treaters arriving at their door, and knowing how to create an adorable treat packaging makes your treat that much more memorable. 

So... back to today's card... it's cool, it's chilly even and we did have a few of those little white snowflakes flying throughout the air just the other evening. So I pulled out a stamp & die set I haven't yet worked. 

Snowman Magic Bundle Is what we are creating with today!

This stamp & die set is just about the cutest thing since the Hippo's. So many little pieces to die cut, plus adorable little stamps and greetings. 
Though it looks like a lot of parts and pieces, it's actually really easy to create with, so I chose it for 5 Minute Monday under the pretense that if you die cut the pieces and have them ready the card will work up in approx. 5 minutes.

If you don't already have this set ~ I highly recommend it, it's completely adorable! The possibilities for little scenes on the card fronts are endless with this bundle. I will post a link to purchase it.
