Say It Ain't Snow!

No, no, no, we have not had snow yet!  Hopefully we won't get ant for a while. I had designed a template for a card challenge recently.  When I went to put the card together, I decided to make it a Winter/holiday card.  I think it was a string of chilly days that got me in that mood!

I ended up making it into a gate fold card.  As much as I am not a fan of shoveling snow, I love snowmen.  I hand cut this little guy.  Glittered up his body and belly and popped him off the card a bit.

The snowflakes I covered with glittery embossing powder that I heated up. This is one time that melting a snowflake actually makes it look even better!  :)

Since snow tends to get everywhere, I added a flake inside with the greeting!  

The cooler temps were quite fleeting. The chilly days have passed and we are back to warm, humid weather.  Actually we are being threatened with more flooding rains. Not too happy about that! But I can look at this happy little snowman and put a smile back on my face!

The template that I created is for the It's In The Cards Challenge over at ScrapMatters.  Interested in playing along? You can grab the template below.  I would love to see your creations!
