I live in Nebraska and as I write this post (Tuesday evening) we are expecting 2-4 inches of snow overnight. I really love snow.....on Christmas Eve!!! After that I am ready for spring! The kids are hoping for a snow day but we shall see......
For my project today, I chose a fun snowman card.
I opened up my Gypsy and use the snowman card for #6 from Speaking of Winter. Each letter and number is made with snowmen, scarves or mittens - it is very cute!!
I sized the card and layer to 4 inches. For the older cricut carts, the layers pretty much have every piece all together on one layer. I copied the layer 5 times and used Hide Contour to hide the extra pieces.
Next I spread out the layer pieces on the lower half of my mat so I could cut them in different colored cardstock.
Here is the Hide Contour button on the Advanced Menu page.
Here is a close up of the Hide Contour screen. I hid the hat (now in faded red).
I cut out the pieces in cardstock. The card base is a blue (with white snowflakes) piece of cardstock with a white back. The hat is a piece of patterned Christmas cardstock. The rest are cut out of black, orange and white cardstock.
I ran the pieces through my 5" Xyron.
I layered the pieces together. I inked the edges of the snowman with black ink.
I added some stickles to the hat, nose, eyes and mouth.
Thank you for stopping over - I would offer you some cocoa if you were here!!!
Your next stop in the hop is the Marvelous Melisa!!
