Inspired Crafters PTI Christmas Card Blog Hop!

HI, everyone, this is my entry for the IC PTI Blog Hop! You should have come here from the sensational SANDYE'S Blog! For my card I used Chris' Challenge # 8 from the IC blog. I cut snowflakes using my Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge and Aqua Mist and Ocean Tides CS. I sponged the edges with white pigment ink and sprinkled on a mixture of white and hologram highlights embossing powder for some frosty sparkle. I used SU's Shimmery White for the base and main image. I stamped the snowman from Made of Snow in Ocean Tides ink and stamped his hat and scarf in white on OT CS, followed by the same mix of EP as above. Then I cut them out and adhered them to my snowman. Sentiment is from Merry and Bright. Punches used are SU. Hope you enjoyed my card--the next stop on the hop is the brilliant BANU! Have a great day!

Great card aMy,
You are so good about using Cricut cartridges, I hev so many and barely use them Out of pure laziness and also my cricut is in a poor location.
I also bought some more this week with the special at cricutmachine.com.
