Cute Interactive Snowman

Hi all!!  I have joined Robin  over at robinscreativecottage linking up party to share my most favorite card I made in 2011!!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I am so grateful to have so many good Blogger Friends!
I wanted you to see to cutest Snowman card That I have ever made!A good friend shared it with me earlier in the week. She learned it from a SU demonstrator that she takes classes from every Tuesday.I have to tell you that I have been making them  non stop every chance I can,between working and house work. I used Mothers Day Bouquet cartridge,brads, the face stamp is a  Stampin up stamp That I believe is no longer available . 2 of the brads are what make the snowman swivel The hardest thing is to get everything lined up straight.I recommend making an extra middle circle and cut it in half and use as a guide to line up your three buttons and to put them all on before you stick to the scalloped circle.


So here are the cuts from the Cricut....3 Circles from MDB, last Image on the overlay.
Circle: small..2 1/4", medium 3", Large 3 3/4" video
Scalloped Circle that I used is second row, fourth in: Small. 2 3/4", Medium. 3 1/2". Large. 4 1/4" You can really dress them up how ever you like. I used 2 hearts and a small circle for the bow tie The hat is a 1 1/2 inch square and I rounded the two corners the brim is a punch from SU. Googly eyes some shimmer chalk for the cheeks. I also used some tule that my other good friend gave me and I think it looks great on the hat. I took a picture of MR.&MRS together!!
Hope you liked my snowman and woman and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to answer them for you!! I would do a video tutorial , but I would not know how to go about it and I am  camera shy! Thanks for visiting and Remember that The 19th of November I am having A very fun Blog hop to celebrate Me and Mickey mouse's Birthday!!

  16. I just got a cricut expressions from my sister. I have not a clue on how to use the machine. I think I need to take a doctorate course to understand it. It is a very intimiating piece of equipment. Any suggestions??? My email is thehogan7@gmail.com. I am in a christmas ornament swap, and that snowman or something similar would be perfect. I just need to know how to use the machine. You don't live in the Greater Charlotte, NC area by any chance do you?? Loved your snow people. Happy Holidays,

  17. I love your snow Couple. I am in an ornament exchange, and Mr & Mrs Snow would be perfect. I just can't figure out my cricut expression my sister just gave me. SO HELP!!!! You would't live in the greater Charlotte, NC area would you??? I'm sure I'll eventually get the hang of it, but not without an intervention 1st. Anything you would love to offer up, I am all ears. My email is thehogan7@gmail.com Thanks so much. Happy Holidays.
