Snowman Christmas Greetings Tag

For Artic Fox OSAAT DT Ch194 click here.   

New to me, first time using, since I bought the Very Merry Tags Cricut cartridge from a friend that sold off all her Cricut stuff since she prefers the Silhouette Cameo. The cartridge was loaded to her Gypsy which she gave to her daughter with the Cricut machine so I had to think back to old school as how to use without the Gypsy.Not been long that I've been using the Gypsy but now that I do I have gotten so use to using it, it took me awhile to remember what to do without using Gypsy.

Cut the happy face Snowman & Tag Base at 4 3/4". Used Ivory Buff cardstock from Kraft Journal store for Tag base. Weaved 2 strands of red yarn thru the Snowman scarf area. Added cardstock in colors of black & orange to back of Snowman for face features. Added black gems. Stamped Basic Grey sentiment. Added ribbon.
