Thank You Snow Much!

I bought the Cricut Snow Friends cartridge several weeks ago but never seemed to have the time to play with it until today. I LOVE school vacations! This is such a cute cartridge! I do have to say that there are many small pieces to deal with that it may be better to play with this cartridge in Cricut Design Studio.

Here are the two cards I constructed:

These cards are 4 x 5 1/2. I cut the blue mat at 2 1/2 x 5 1/4. The snow layer is cut at 5 1/4 length but I hand cut the curves for the snow. I then ran that through the Cuttlebug using the Swirls folder. The paper used for the snowmen is K&Company Hopscotch mat stack. I cut the snowman at 3 inches and he is attached with 1/8 inch pop-dots. The sign is hand cut with the post run through the Cuttlebug using the Distressed Stripes folder. The top layer of snow is hand cut as well and pop-dotted with foam tape. I inked the edges with Marth Stewart pigment ink and did a little doodling.

Thank you so much for looking!


Holiday Blessings to you all!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and was able to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our family is very blessed and I hope you feel the same way. I pray that the new year will be filled with many blessings for each of you!
