Thanks Snow Much Card

Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a lovely holiday.  We had a wonderful time here and are still off until later this week.  We've been quite busy over the break so it will be quite nice to have a few days at home to recuperate before getting back into the swing of things.

The weather the past few days has been quite mild and much of our snow has melted due to rain.  That didn't stop me from participating in this week's Fantabulous Cricut "snowy delights" challenge though!  We are challenging you to use your Cricut to make something with a snow theme.
I made a number of these cards to send as thank you notes for gifts I received for Christmas.  I used a Martha Stewart punch-around-the-page set to create the little white mat.  I cut a smaller piece of white cardstock and embossed it with a Sizzix snowflake folder to place on top of the mat.  To make the little tag, I used two different stamps.  I added some Glossy Accents to the "snow" on the stamped sentiment.  I then used a Stampin' Up punch to make the top of the tag and added some ribbon.  The large green snowflake was cut from Very Merry Tags (hiding the contours of the actual tag).  I then heat embossed it with UTEE.  (The colours match better in real life!)  The patterned paper is from DCWV's Holiday Stack.  I used a Creative Memories corner rounder punch for all the corners. 

I wish you all the best for the New Year.  May each one of you be richly blessed with what 2011 has to offer.
