Christmas Cheer snowman card (for Exploring Cricut)

We have a great challenge to help you get ready for the holidays- it's a Christmas card challenge!  All you have to do is make a Christmas card with a cut from your cricut on it somewhere.  My card was inspired by the fun Doodlebug snowman background paper (from the North Pole collection), which clearly needed a big snowman accent!  My snowman is from the Winter Frolic cartridge, although I had a hard time making up my mind which cricut snowman to use (there are so many cute ones…).   The red polka dot strip at the bottom is not ribbon, but a scrap of paper from the collection!

Winter Frolic-snowman cut at 3 1/2 inches
Paper-Doodlebug North Pole collection prints, CTMH solids
Stamp-Ali Edwards Christmas collection
Ink-Memento Tuxedo black
jewels-from the stash
Punches for the sentiment-Stampin Up

Check out all the cards that the Exploring Cricut team has put together and then link yours up too!

  4. Oh how cute!!!! I so love this little snowman and the awesome bg paper!! :)

  5. Hee hee! This is super cute!! You're right he's perfect for the bg paper:) Sounds like your Thanksgiving was great. I'm hoping the weather man is wrong about the snow. Our weather has been weird with today being in the 60s. Keep warm tomorrow as we will be in the 30s. I hope you won't have to go out in it if it does snow. Maybe we'll get a snow day. I'm for that:)
