Baby, It's Cold Outside

I made this card for the current Cuttlebug Mania 'Baby, it's cold outside' challenge where they want to see a snowman.  I made my card with snippets of card so am also popping over the to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white hammer
Image: Snowman topper (make unknown)
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Embossing: Snowflake (magazine freebie), Kars tan embossing mat
Other: Crystal Stickles, Wink of Stella, Silver gems
Snippets: White hammer and silver mirri card

I embossed a snippet of white hammer card with the snowflake folder, layered it onto silver mirri and attached it to the card front.  The snowman topper was a little too big so I die cut it with the standard circles die and embossed the edge.  This was then layered onto a scalloped, embossed scalloped circle which had been die cut from another snippet of silver mirri.  The topper was then attached to the card front with foam tape.  To finish, I highlighted the swirls on the topper background with a Wink of Stella, added Crystal Stickles to the snowflakes and three silver gems for the snowman's buttons.
