This winter fun snowman card post can be broken into two parts. The first part is a craft design tip. The second part is the a free snowman card project. The craft design tip is on how to achieve a designer look when creating a collection. Avoid matchie-matchie. Matchie-matchie is when the design elements are applied to all the pieces in a collection in the exact same manner. The three snowman projects that were posted on this blog look like they belong together because the share the same color palette and design theme. What makes them look like a designer product vs. a mass-produced one is that each one is a bit different from the other in an easily discernible way.
