Vintage Snowman Easel Card

 The idea of an easel card  and snowpeople inspired me to make a vintage Christmas card  using an image from one of my cd's. The Basic Grey paper I used is so old, it's "vintage," too - "Figgy Pudding." I chose the sentiment "Love never melts" because there's a feeling of warmth and love in the way the boy is building the snowman, the girl is smiling, looking on, and a man is looking across the fence like an adoring father.

The torn paper in the lower left gave me the idea to rip the edges a little. That also gives the easel a resting place so it doesn't slide shut. Here's the side view showing the two folds and a top view showing the verse I typed.



I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

A Snowflake's Promise - anything goes
