Snowman Thanks Card

Welcome crafty people! I am honored you stopped by. Today, I pulled out the scrap box to create a card and I also found a Cricut storage box that had several Cricut Color cartridges that I picked up on clearance earlier in the year.  I decided to travel through my Gypsy Hand Held Cricut device and find some embellishments for my card as well. Here is what I created. I like how it turned out. Enjoy your day and come back again ~ Gail ~
Squigglefly winner card ~ Thank you!
RECIPE
Kraft Cardstock for the card
Scraps of cardstock from my scrapbook for the card mat, tree, banner, and thanks
Snowman Catching snowflakes digital stamp from Squigglefly (I won this stamp - Yeah!)
Sharpie markers for coloring - this is my first adventure at using these markers. I liked the results.
Cricut Cartridges:  1. Everyday Pop Up Cards - Banner  2. Classic Font - Thanks  3. Create A Critter - Christmas Tree
Pop Up Tape Forever in Time (behind Snowman and tree)
MS gray ink on snow
Tim Holtz Distress Antique ink on tree and Brown Chalk ink on Snowman
I used the Cricut Black Coloring Pen to outline the Thanks before cutting. I like how that turned out. I then colored the Thanks with a red Crayola coloring pencil. I colored the Heart Banner with a Sharpie and glued the Thanks to the banner. I then put an Action Wobble behind the Banner and trimmed the excess of the Action Wobble so it did not show. It works great! Wobble, Wobble!
