Winter Scene Let It Snow Christmas Card

Created this Christmas card with a Let It Snow Winter scene theme in mind.

Used Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge for house image. Red cardstock for house & white for roof of house. Used Marvy Snow Marker and after it dried used heat tool for snow look on roof. The photo does not do the look of the snow justice.
Recycled some plastic from red tape adhesive package for windows on house. Used a Martha Stewart tree punch and added a mini gold star brad on top of tree and placed it to be viewed thru house window. Added some dark blue glitter cardstock to inside of house. Used light blue cardstock with Martha Stewart Aspen Snowflake corner punch & edge punch. Used Martha Stewart snowman punch and white glitter cardstock. Added Enamel accents black for snowman hat. Used Martha Stewart deer punch and copper/brown glitter cardstock.

Used Spellbinder for sentiment tag. Used the Paper Studio snowflakes "Let it Snow" stamp and Memento Royal Blue ink.

Snipped backs off some Christmas Pearl Snowflake buttons with my Tim Holtz scissors and used glue dots to attach them to the light blue glitter cardstock. Added ribbon. 

Closeup so you can see the tree thru the window:

brad: mini gold star
Dress It Up Christmas Pearl Snowflakes - snipped the button backs off with my TH scissors
