Snowflake cards

I managed to make most of my Christmas cards in the summer time.  When you live in the desert southwest, it's very hot during the summer months.  I find this a good time to stay in my air conditioned home and make Christmas cards.  I started off by teaching teaching a class at Senior Circle.
Playing with snowmen and snowflakes is a good way to take your mind off the heat outside.  Since this is a beginners class, I keep it simple by using stickers.  I did show them how to use the snowflake embossing folder to make the background and how to attach the ribbon to back of top layer.
This is another variation, using a border punch to create the paper ribbon.  The saying is a stamp by Hero Arts.
