Snow Buddies Card with Twig arms

Hi Stamping Friends!!!
I really had fun with this Snowman Card. I wanted to make those little hats again with the mittens and I used some twigs out of my yard for the arms. I am really not sure how this card will do in the mail, lol but you can always give it away.

To make the mitten hats all you have to do is cut the tips of the fingers off and fold them than add them to your card. You can also use old socks, by cutting them and using Hot Glue to put them on. I would take a piece of wire and twist it at the top of the hat then cut little strips to make the pom pom.

I wanted it to look like snow behind them that is why I picked this DSP Candy Cane Christmas snowflake paper. I just love this paper, I might have to buy another pack of it. I did use a piece of white paper behind the border punch to make it pop a little more.
