FCCB#243 - We Love Snowmen!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #243 Snowmen

This Weeks Sponsor

Pretty Cute Stamps


~This Weeks Challenge~
Create a project inspired by Snowmen/Snowpeople

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

While I do not own any Pretty Cute Stamps yet... I know the owner of the store has some SVG files available on the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons site and I just could not resist using this Sweet Snowmen SVG to create these Snow Friends!

First up is the Snow Girl, I could not resist using a little copic marker to create the cheeks and I used a embossing folder on the body of the snowgirl/boy for some texture!

I added the Hat on the Snow Boy using the Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge and embellished it with the Holly leaves from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!

  1. Open the SVG file in Cricut Design Space and cut all cutting files at the original size from the different patterned paper pieces.
  2. Cut 2 extra full snowman base from white cardstock to use for the card base. 
  3. Using the Create A Critter 2 Cartridge cut the Hat from Pg 51 at 2 ½” from Black Cardstock
  4. Using the Art Philosopy Cricut Cartridge cut the Holly and berries from Page 46 at 1” from both the Teal and Pink patterned papers.
  5. Score down the centre of the holly leaves and glue to the second piece to add some dimension.
  6. Using the Embossing folder emboss the bottom half of both snowman bodies.
  7. Ink and glue all the pieces together to create the card.
