Christmas Version: Twist Circle Window Snowman Card

OK, so today's share is technically a Christmas Version of another Christmas card, but let's not get hung up on technicalities, okay?

This is a combination of two previous cards - the Twist Circle Snowman Card and the Twist Circle Window Card.

As with my previous "Christmas Version" cards, I've followed the video instructions precisely, simply substituting the colors and elements to fit my new theme.

I found a piece of Echo Park paper in my stash from their 2012 Very Merry Christmas line and loved the geometric gray snowflake circles. The front of my card is very simple with a ribbon bow and a metal snowflake charm attached with a jump ring through the knot.

The card measures 5" x 5" in the closed position and features a fold-over magnetic flap closure. As the card is opened, the snowman starts to lift and twist.

Once open, the snowman has twisted to a new position and floats high in the card. I cut off the tail of the Santa hat from Props 5 to make a stocking hat instead, adding a pom pom to the top and cutting the band from a piece of glittery washi tape. His arms are also made from Props 5 - the reindeer antlers with the extra antlers trimmed off. The carrot is from Lucky the Rabbit, but a triangle of orange cardstock would work just as well. The eyes, mouth and buttons are small flat rhinestones from my stash. I used pop dots between the layers of the snowman. The brown Merry Christmas greeting panel is from the same paper's reverse side.

Here are the items I used on my Snowman card. I couldn't source the exact paper because it's too old, but any snowflake design could be substituted.
