Happy Christmas ~ Tree ~ Snowman

Hi Paper Lovers - welcome to my blog. Well.... today we had S-N-O-W! Woke up this morning and looked out the window and there it was all white and fluffy on the ground - and as I drove to church -we had ICY roads as well - and the driving was around 15 MPH. Thankfully, we got their safe and sound and by the time we left the church building the roads were clear and the temperate was up - so not much snow left. Here is my card creation for today. Enjoy your week! ~ Gail~
Front of card - second fold

Inside card - space on the left to write a message
I had fun putting together this card. On the front I used a Tree embossing folder by Cuttlebug as the mat. I added a Snowflake red/green ribbon on the corner of the mat. Then I glued the mat to a pre-made white cardstock size A2 card and scored 1/2 inch on the opened end, folded it under and glued down. There is space on the inside front cover to write a message. I added a Create a Critter Christmas Tree Cricut Cut to the front of the card using pop-up tape by Forever in Time. On the inside of the card, I glued down a green snowflake paper print from DCWV Matstack. The digital stamp is compliments of Tammy at A Daisy A Day and must be used in their challenge. You can click here to download it free and please use in their challenge. I used Sharpies and Spectrum Noir markers for coloring the digital stamp. I then cut the digital stamp by using a Lattice Rectangular frame die cut by Spellbinders. The edges of the frame were inked with MS blue ink. I positioned the snowman on the lattice frame on the inside of the card (using pop up tape) close to the center so when the card is closed the green snowflakes are visible on the right side
