Smile Card

I have been waiting all week to post my card for the Add-On sketch over at Sketch Support. This week it is this adorable snowman. There have been some amazing projects posted so be sure to visit the site and check them out.

I decided to make a card for my project. I had seen a similar style of snowman on Pinterest and I really wanted to try to make one of my own. This sketch was the perfect opportunity.


I created accordion flowers in two different sizes for the body and head. I used a heart border punch on the strip before I scored and folded. I thought the hearts were perfect for my snowman. I also found this miniature carrot nose that fit perfectly on his face.


I found some chipboard pieces deep in my stash and they worked great to assemble my card. For the scarf I used some seam binding!


I am not sure that this card will be the permanent home for my snowman. He just may make his way on to a layout in the future.



  1. OMG Carolyn, this is sooooooooo awesome! (I'm freaking out a little bit here.) I love it, love it, love it! I never would have thought to use accordion flowers for snowmen. Such a creative idea! I love the papers and the chipboard too.
