A Quilted Christmas - Snowman

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
My free two week subscription with the newly purchased Cricut Explore has expired so I have been  linking some of my cartridges. I had never linked any of my cartridges to any system. I have many more to link. It will surprise me how many cartridges that I own and have never used.

Today I am sharing a Winter card made using several cartridges with some images that I have never used. The card measures 5"x 6 1/2" and is white cardstock. The background patterned paper is from my recently purchased The Paper Studio Pine St. Square paper pad. Green plaid used on the vest is from a new pad from the Paper Studio Winter Wonderland.

Cricut Cartridges
A Quilted Christmas - Snowman
Winter Frolic - Phrase "Brrrr"
Winter Woodland - Red Bird
Winter Wonderland -Holly Berry
Teresa Collins Dec 25 - Snowflake - inside card
3 Birds of Parade - Phrase "Baby, its Cold Outside" - inside card.

Cuttlebug Folders are Snowflakes and Polka Dots. I hand cut the snow banks and added the embossing for texture. I added Stickles Frosted Lace on the snow banks but my camera did not capture that effect.
Tiny snowflakes are the negative cut from the Martha Stewart Aspen Snowflake edge punch. I added red rhinestones to the snowflakes for a bit of bling.
Snowman and Hollyberry are pop-dotted on card for dimension.
