"Try It Different" Tuesday: Festive Snowguys

Do you like to make Christmas cards that are lighthearted and whimsical? If so, we've got some great ideas to share with you! They feature cute stamps using 11189MC Festive Snowguys Clear Set (drawn by artist Tammy DeYoung):


Debbie Fisher decorated the front of her card with the candy cane snowguy image:


He's so "sweet" (yep, pun intended!), with his rosy cheeks and glittery treat:


This card is extra special because of the beautifully decorated inside:


I just love that teeny tag that hangs from the layered sentiment panel:


Michelle Pearson used the same main image for her cheerful version in brighter red and green shades:


You may recall seeing this similar card a few weeks ago. Wouldn't it be neat to create a set of coordinating cards like this, to give as a gift?

Using the Skating Snowguy image from this set (0912F in wood mounted), she also created a clever combination penny spinner/shaker card with two unique features on the same project:


To recreate this card yourself, you can download a PDF file of the instructions here.

What do you think, Inky friends? Aren't these cards "snow" much fun? (I know, you can groan with me, ha ha!)
