Cricut Cardz Challenge #58

Bet you wasn't expecting me to get my card done this early for Cricut Cardz did you?! After doing some house stuff most of the day, I got into my craft room and got busy. I finished 3 creations and have a great idea for a 4th one! I'll get to it after church tomorrow. Now this week Mary said to make a card with a snowman. You can use any cartridge and any colors, just make sure it has a snowman on it. Now I really wanted to do something different this time. I typed snowman into my Gyspy Girl's index and looked through all the different ones on all the cartridges. I came across the snowman face on Very Merry Tags cart. Hummmm......I know I can use this in some way. After a bit of thought I decided to make a round card from it. I hid everything on the tag, duplicated it and then welded it together to make my card base. Then I took apart (so to speak) everything that went on the tag. I cut the eyes, mouth pieces and hat piece and then the nose seperately so I could have the 2 different colors. I hid and did everything on 3 layers in my Gypsy Girl. It all looked like the biggest mess. Had to really look to see what I had hid and hadn't!! I also cut a circle to go on the inside. The snowflake and snowman was cut from core'dinations Pearls cardstock. This is super heavy cardstock that has a pearlized look to it. I don't know if you can really tell it from the photo though. I really like it. The sentiment is a stamp. Well, that's all there is to my card. You have until midnight, Tuesday, January 25th to create a snowman card, so get to creating and join in on the fun!!  Hope ya'll like my card!!! :)
