Snowman poem card
This would make a lovely Christmas card for a grand-parent.
A hammer white DL card blank has been used here.
Cut a piece of red glitter card to 17.5 x 8.5cm. The ribbon here appears to be long lengths that have been doubled over but you can cheat here to save ribbon - cut short lengths and stick them to the back of the card with tape - a loop at the top and 4 straight pieces at the bottom. Mount the glitter card to the card blank with double sided tape.
The poem that appears below has been printed in dark green print onto white pearlescent card and then trimmed to measure 15 x 8cm. The font used on the card is Monotype Corsiva, size 12, although this won't appear below if you do not have this font on your PC. Choose another font that you like if this is the case.

In a yard, a snowman will stand.
A little boy will take his hand.
They'll stand and talk for a little while.
On the snowman's face, there's a happy smile.
As I look at the child's face,
I know there's nothing can take the place,
Of a snowman on a winter day,
As all the children run and play.
I think of years that have travelled by,
Since I looked towards the sky,
And watched the snowflakes tumble down,
To make a white blanket o'er the ground.
We all seem to grow up fast,
And look to years that have raced past,
When we were filled with that wonderful joy,
Like the happiness I see in that little boy.
Next year when the snow comes down,
There'll be snowmen all around.
And when the ground is covered anew,
Who knows! Maybe I'll build one too!!
Stick the poem to the card with double sided tape and add a wooden snowman head from the wooden Christmas assortment with tape or glue. Punch holly from green pearlescent card using a large holly punch. I've trimmed off the stem here and added three 'berries' which have been cut from red pearlescent card with an 1/8 inch hole punch. Stick with tacky glue.
