Snowman tealight easel cards

Today I'm sharing a fun snowman tealight easel card I made a couple of months ago after seeing these cute snowmen on Becky Roberts blog. I thought putting him on an easel would be really cute & he does really make me smile.
I followed Becky's snowman instructions using circle punches plus, large & xl oval punches so check them out here. I did add an extra oval punch shape behind the head, so the hat fitted better. I also had some black rhinestones in my stash so I used them for the eyes & mouth. You can see my snowman closer here.
 
Here's another version with his little nose lit up. I cut a small circle through the easel backing using the smallest circle framelit die so that the tealight can easily be switched on & off.
With a nose this big, he needed a box to live in rather than an envelope, so I cut a circle window in 
one of our great kraft gift boxes. Here he is packed in his box.
I made some single snowmen too, but I forgot to take pics of them, so that's all from me for now. If you'd like any more info, just leave me a comment with your details. Thanks for visiting.
Inky wishes, Di

    1. Hi Kim
      Thanks for your comment. I don't have the original cards anymore so I can't tell the dimensions for sure, however I think it would have been the normal small one I use:

      Front: 10 x 10cm (4 x 4 inches)
      Cut Base: 10 x 30cm (4 x 12 inches)
      Score at 10, 15, 20 cm (4, 6, 8 inches).

      Hope that helps, Di
