Brrrr....It's Cold Out There!!

Well we have had a pretty big storm hit the area and we have several new inches of snow (on top of the 10 inches we already had) with another couple of inches more predicted before the storm completely blows away from the state.  It is sooo very cold outside and I thought it would be a great day to share this card that I created for the Cricut Circle magazine last year.......
I cut the house with my Cricut and the Winter Woodland cartridge for the house and the Fancy Frames cartridge for the fancy background layer.  The background is embossed with the Cuttlebug and the Snowflakes die.  I added some white paint to the raised surface on the blue background to make it stand out a little bit more.  The snow on the house has some stickles glitter glue added to it for a little sparkle.  I added some stitching, ribbon, button and a sticker sentiment from SRM Stickers to finish off the card.

I hope that if it is winter where you are, you are staying nice and warm.  As for me, I think I will go and cuddle with my hubby by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa.

  1. This is a gorgeous card and I really feel for you in thick, thick snow although I'm sure where you live, they're very organised for snow, whereas in this country; U.K, everything seems to grind to a halt.
    Anyway, enough of weather. I actually have the Winter Woodland cartridge and now that we can buy digital cartridges, I could soon get the Frames one and no postage and no customs to pay, so that's great!
