"Snowman" Snowglobe Challenge over at SOUS!

 Hi All and welcome to a Fun Friday Challenge with Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge this week and we are celebrating the "Snowmen" in our lives, lol! Yep the challenge this week over at SOUS is to use "Snowmen" (and I'm sure you could give him a Snow "Girl" if you like!) for you projects. I have a warm spot in my heart for Snow people and have been collecting them for quite awhile and have quite a few but I always seem to find more, lol! I actually wanted to make these for my Christmas cards this year but lo and behold I never did get Any cards done this year (shame on me!) I originally wanted to make a snowglobe card and had been inspired by a gal on the Cricut messageboard named Sharon and you can check out her blog and her snowman post here. (Yes I totally believe in giving credit where credit is due, kind of like Karma, lol!) I like how it turned out and who knows I still may make some more and use them this Christmas, lol! Well the card is 5 1/4" tall and is a tri-fold card and opens three ways. I created it on Design Studio (I still haven't used the Cricut Craft Room, I like new technology but it takes me awhile to get into it, lol!) I still like my DS!   
Here's a view of the card opened. I used George and Doodlecharms for this card, Doodlecharms is always a cute, go to, cart. I welded then cut the snowglobe @ 3 1/2" and the snowman is cut @ 2". You can use any shape you want to weld onto the rectangle base and I chose to use a rounded corner rectangle from George cut @ 5" and stretched a bit to fit the size I wanted. And the Cute little Snowman is welded and 2". Now for the actual snowglobe I re-used a cartridge clamshell and hand cut a circle and then embossed it with the cuttlebug snowflake folder.  
Here's a close up of the little Cutie! I ran him through my little Xyron machine and glittered him with Martha Stewart glitter to make him sparkle then used black bling for his coal eyes and buttons and used some twine for his scarf. 
Now here's the close up of the Globe with the embossed plastic clamshell. Now the snowflakes are also a Martha Stewart punch and also added some bling (You know me, love the bling, lol)! Added some more twine and a little bread tag (yes an actual bread tag) with a snowflake added on it! 
And here's one more picture of the closed up tri-fold card for you to see in all it's cuteness!
