Instructions:

2. Stamp snowman again on patterned paper, cut out and adhere to snowman image.
3. Swipe paint along edges of pattern paper to distress.
4. Adhere pattern paper to cardfront. Adhere snowman to card with foam adhesive.

Yes, adorable seems to be the adjective of choice -- which makes sense, because this is one adorable snowman card!
