Rudolph Day - The Freezin' Season

It's been way too long since I've joined in a card challenge so I thought I'd jump back in with a trio of holiday cards for the Rudolph Challenge. While I'm not ready for the Freezin' Season quite yet (or quite ever) I could do with a little less heat in the air.  Those triple digits sure can get a bit stifling after awhile.
I decided to use some pre-printed card bases that I had in my Christmas stash and what better to go with these cards than my newish Swanky Snowdudes stamp set that I had to have after seeing it over and over this past holiday season.
I actually had 5 card blanks when I started but one of them was gunked up so I cut out the greeting and applied it with dimensional tape.  I liked it so much that I did it on the second card as well.
I originally was going to put all three snowmen (snowdudes, sorry) on all three cards but I thought they looked a little crowded.  I had to do it for at least one card though.
The insides of the cards are decorated with bits from the card bases I cut up.  I didn't put a "happy holidays" or "Merry Christmas" greeting in any of them. I thought I'd wait and see how things go come the holiday season.  Sometimes it is nice to just have a winter themed card lying around.

The Fine Print: Stamp set by Paper Smooches "Swanky Snowdudes," card bases by DCWV, snowflake punch by unknown (from back in the day before crafting companies put their name on their products), bling by Hero Arts.  Hubby was strangely concerned that I'd mention him on my blog, so here goes: Joe Palmer.

LOVE the snowdudes! The bit of stickles is perfect - and nice save on the gunky base ;)
Also, what is it with husbands and blogs? Mine does that too, says 'you'd better not blog about that' or 'you're not putting that on Facebook!' which really, really makes me want to do the same. lol!

Good call on pairing them off - love the jaunty look with just the two - but also very happy to see one card with all three... What's the collective noun for snowmen (or indeed snowdudes)? A freeze of snowmen? A bobble of snowmen?
