Retro Snowmen Christmas Cards

Christmas in July: Retro Snowmen Christmas Cards from Polly’s Paper Studio

Hello, Friends!

Beat the summer heat with some adorable Retro Snowmen Christmas cards!  Today I have a trio of super adorable  cards to share with you in my Christmas in July event.  These cutie pies from Polly’s Paper Studio are part of the amazing Retro Christmas Creativity Kit.  The kit is loaded up with 63 pieces including patterned paper, images, ephemera and pre-tied bows.  I’m betting these snowmen will melt your heart!

See? I told you they were adorable!

Christmas Creativity Kit Snowmen05I added burlap and embellishments from my stash to the super cute paper, ephemera and bows that come in the kit.  For this 7″ x 4″ card, I created a little banner to go with Mr. and Mrs. Snowman.

Christmas Creativity Kit Snowmen02I mounted the image and Bingo card onto the burlap panel.  Scraps of paper from the kit were cut into banner shapes and then glued over this wire coat hanger that I found in my stash.

Christmas Creativity Kit Snowmen03The apple green satin ribbon bow that come in the kit matches the hanger so well, and it just makes the whole design pop.

Christmas Creativity Kit Snowmen04On the inside, a snowman was stamped onto one of the labels that comes in the kit.  There’s plenty of room to write a personal note on the side.

Christmas Creativity Kit Snowmen06The kissing snow people couple is totally adorable.  I really love the candy cane stripe paper that came in the kit.  Again, I used scraps from the kit to make the banners and the sheet music tag. The paper in this kit is so cute I didn’t want to waste a bit of it!

Christmas Creativity Kit Snowmen07I did dig into my scrap bin for the paper on the inside of the card.

Christmas Creativity Kit Snowmen08This Dapper Dan Snowman is stylin’ in his top hat and striped scarf. And don’t you love that Bingo Card?  It comes in the kit! The black polka dot paper is from my stash.

Christmas Creativity Kit Snowmen09The gorgeous bow comes in the kit. I added the tags and brads from my stash.

I could not believe how many projects I made with this kit!  I’ll be sharing the altered art box and mini album I made later this month, along with a really elegant card.  I would finish a project and go, “Wow…I have enough to make another card!”  And the images are all so cheery…I really had a blast!

If you love retro images, patterns and colors, this kit is the one for you.  But don’t wait too long…these kits sell out really fast!

Thanks for stopping by!



These cards are available for purchase in my Etsy shop.

    Oh my gosh Kathy, what could be more cute than retro snowmen! These are just fantastic! You always have the most creative layouts, with tags tucked in here and fishtail banners layered up over there. So much thought goes into every card and it’s worth it! LOVE those little snowman buttons, just adorable! The traditional red and green is my favourite for the holidays and I love the mix of traditional and vintage! Well done as always. big hugs 🙂

    Lovely cards Kathy. What a fabulous kit full of all sorts of great things for a fab price. Snowmen are rather adorable, not sure about the cold stuff they are made from though. X

    Love these kitschy Christmas delights, Kathy! They’re each and every one very special and remind me it’s time to work on my fall and winter cards right now! Thanks for sharing these little beauties!

    It is hard for me to wrap my head around the idea that Christmas is only 6 months away! These cards remind me of cards we used to get when I was little. Very “retro” and absolutely adorable!
