How to Make It:

  3. Cut two 1-1/2x1-1/2-inch squares from contrasting card stock and ink the edges. Cut a 2-1/4x3-1/4-inch rectangle from a third color of card stock and ink the edges. Adhere all three pieces to the front of the card.
  4. Adhere die-cut snowman using foam dots.
  5. Add "Be Jolly" to the top square.
  6. Use glue dots to attach three buttons to the bottom square.
  7. Print or stamp an inside greeting for your card.
