Snowman "Cool Dude" Birthday Card

It's sooooo hot and humid in Houston right now.  It's not even 9am, and the temperature is already 71º F.  Seriously!  The only reasons I even know it's January are (1) the calendar and (2) winter and snow Cricut challenges.

To cool down today, I whipped out my Winter Frolic cartridge and made a card:

Card Details:
  • Card Base - DCWV Brights (A2)
  • Papers - patterns by Colorbok; cardstock by Recollections
  • Cricut Cuts - snowman from Winter Frolic, page 31; "Cool Dude" phrase from Boys Will Be Boys, page 76
  • Embossing - white background with Cuttlebug's Snowflakes; blue background with Cuttlebug's Happy Birthday; hat with Cuttlebug's Herringbone; scarf and hat bill with The Paper Studio's Mesh Texture
  • Other - sentiment on pop dots

I'm entering this card into the following challenge:

Birthday Sundaes:  Challenge #39 - Snowman 
Getting Cricky with K Andrew: Simply Sunday Challenge #43 - Let It Snow/Use Embossing

  1. So cute! I love the patterned hat and scarf. :)

    I'm jealous of your hot weather - we're sitting at -30C; -40C with the windchills (that's about -22F; -40F with wind). Flights have been cancelled, the roads are covered in ice, and people are just staying home and trying to keep warm. Hmmmm, maybe I ought to see if there are jobs available in Houston. ;)
