Another Christmas card...

This card is made using my Cricut...did I mention that I love my bug? I cut the card itself with one of the hordes of svg files I have collected, and attached some ribbon that I found at Wal Mart last year and loved.I inked the edges of my card with Brilliance Moonlight White ink, to give the card a kind of a "frosty feel". Then I cut the snowman from Doodlecharms out of brown cardstock for the regular cut, then for the shift cut, I cut it out of DCWV white glitter cardstock (I love it because the glitter doesn't come off everywhere, and I have had success cutting it with my Cricut). I cut the glitter stock using my Deep Cut Blade, set at a speed of 2 and pressure 4. I also cut the itty bitty snowflakes (that I added to the top of the Merry Christmas tag) out of the DCWV cardstock and using the Doodlecharms cartridge. The Merry Christmas plaque was cut out using Storybook cartridge, the "Happily Ever After" plaque, the accent/frame cut and the accent/blackout cut, then used the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from some Martha Stewart stamps I picked up last year, and stamped it with Brilliance Galaxy Gold. The snowman's scarf was a scrap of red velvet ribbon that I tied around his neck, and frayed the edges by making little snips with my Cutterbee scissors, and running my fingernail over it.
