3 Button Snowman Card and Christmas Nail Designs

Merry Christmas! 
So are you ready for the big day? We are.  All the presents are purchased, wrapped and under the tree!  It's a nice feeling to have so we can relax and enjoy our family this holiday season.

Today I wanted to share with you a sweet little card I made using old vintage buttons.  It's no secret that I love snow people and of course I had fun creating this little guy!  I created another similar tag idea HERE.  That little tag has been a huge hit on Pinterest.  It's heartwarming to me to see one of  my creations spread like wildfire on a site I have so much fun with! :)
I first stamped the Kraft card stock with an old Stampin' Up set I have and then I added the buttons with a bit of glue.
His little hat is just a few scraps of black card stock, a Martha Stewart punch for the leaves and some red seed beads for the berries. I also added a bit of clear glitter for "snow" on his hat.
Lastly I added a bit of red and white baker's twine for his tie and I was done.  It's very easy to put together!
Isn't he the cutest?  This would be a very simple card to mass produce...I think! LOL!
I also wanted to share with you some of my holiday nail designs I've worn this year.  This first one I saw on Pinterest HERE and then went to the nail salon and told them, "I want this design!" They were happy to oblige me!
This one I did myself, its a few coats of Sally Hansen's "Flirt" and then I added one coat of Confetti's "Tazmanian Devil" to my ring fingers.
This is the one I'm currently wearing, I just did this design yesterday as we watched movies.  First I did a french tip with Orly's "Star Spangled" and then I added 2 coats of the Confetti's "Tazmanian Devil".  Its very sparkly and shiny in real life!

I hope you've enjoyed my card and my nail designs!  Thanks for stopping by today. Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)

Pin It!
