Snowman gift Set

Hello, today i would like to show you a set that's either perfect for "gift giving" or to self use :-) I love snowman, first they are cute, second they make super fast cards since usually there is not much coloring involved - just some C1 or some B00 and voila.. plus i can go crazy with fun stuff like Stickles and Liquid Applique :-)



I do have a couple of snowmen stamps but i was looking around where to find something different and i went to the Angel Company site, i had shopped there before for some Christmas stamps and i know some stamps they have are totally "my style". So, i fell in love with this cute set "Snowman Nativity" (if you have a minute check out those super cute penguins too :-)

So, this is how the entire set looks like - perfect for one of our family members who likes more this style. Now the details
The card is an invitation size card and the little ones are 3x3 perfect to tuck them onto a Christmas present. Every card has "Enjoy" or "Thank you" stamped on. I have used for that Stampin up's retired set Fancy Flexible phrases because it works wonders with the Word Window punh.
Stamps: The Angel Company "Nativity" can be purchased though my friend Chris! (Thank you hun for helping me to order xxx
Papers: Stampin up and scraps of Basic Grey, Neenah Ultra White
Embellishments: Making Memories (brads & button), Liquid Applique, Stickles, Cuttlebug Embossing folder, Nestabilities Circle (plain and scalloped), Martha Stewart (Snowflake punch)
Other: Acetate gift box - source unknown i picked that one up at the craft show in Novi
