“Oh What Fun” Snowman Punch Art Card

Hi Stampers,
I can't believe that My Halloween Cardmaking Season is at the end, and My Christmas Cardmaking Season is here.  I have been very busy working on some new Christmas Cards for you and for My Card Class Students.  I have just made this cute little “Oh What Fun" Snowman Punch Art Card.  I used the Season of Style DS Paper Stack and the Christmas Messages Stamp Set.  I absolutely love this stamp set!  I have already used the Christmas Messages Stamp Set more than any other Christmas Stamp Set that I own.  I t's a great stamp set and I have a ton of more ideas for it!  Leave a comment in the comments section below letting everyone know what your favorite Christmas Stamp Set is, it's will be interesting to see how many great Stampin' Up! Christmas Stamp Sets there are, I hope you like the card...
