Fun Snowman card!

If you were at my Christmas in July class last month, then you made this cute little snowman.  This is a really fun card to make.  I saw a tutorial on this tecnique, and when I saw three stacked circles, I had to make a snowman.   The card starts out as a circle, but when you lift up on the top circle, the others move into line and you get the telescoping effect.  Fun to make and fun to recieve!  You can make your circles in just about any size.  I wanted mine to be easy so I made them with my 'Big Shot' which has quite a few circle dies.  I used the large scallop circle die, the 4 in circle die, 3 1/2 in die, 3 in die, and my Stampin Up ! 2 1/2 in circle punch.  The snowmans arms are from a tree branch in the set 'Season of Friendship'.   The greeting is from the set 'Christmas Greeting'.  Christmas Greeting is a great set because it has a "Merry Christmas" that is big enough to be used on the front of a card, but not too big that it cant also be used on the inside.  It also has a nice sentiment for those of us who sometimes have a hard time thinking of something to write on the inside : )   The sentiment reads "May the joy and love you feel this holiday season extend to every day throughout the year."
