It's beginning to look a lot like....

Oh you know the rest! Christmas, in July, that is!
Have you heard? CHF is having a Christmas in July Promotion. With each order placed in July you will receive a free gift...it is Christmas!
So to add to the buffet of releases in the Christmas theme from CHF this month here is a peek at one of the sentiments in the new "Christmas Expressions" that is going to be released on Thursday!
Ok, to the card....
This one is so stampy, I just love that about it! I first stamped the scroll scrapblock as the background, it has this fun windy winter feel about it. Next I stamped the snowman and his coordinating flakes and then embossed in white.

*****side note******
This is one of the few snowman that I have seen that is a solid image....ever wondered how to make your white snowmen white? This is perfect! All you need is white embossing powder or a good white pigment ink! HERE is the link to this cute little guy.

I tied the little ribbon to mimic his scarf by unraveling it a bit at the ends. Sewed around the edge then stamped the sentiment in brown. So fun!

This is seriously the cutest snowman I've ever seen, and I ADORE this card you've made with him! Love your colors and that scroll bg looks so blustery! Also love your details of the snow and the unraveled scarf ends. TOO CUTE!
