Let It Snow card made using Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge and Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather paper!

Hello, everyone! This is Melanie and today I have another Christmas card that I made using the Winter Frolic cricut cartridge and Cosmo Cricket paper. This card is much more involved than my simple card that I did on Monday. I just love non-traditional colors for Christmas. Don't get me wrong I like red and green too, but sometimes you just want something different. I think purple and aqua are definitely great for that. These shades are definitely from a cool color family, so they are perfect for cards about winter.

'Let It Snow' was cut at 3".
The snowflakes were cut at 2 1/4" and 2" and layered.
I used papertrey Ink ribbon.
The small pearl snowflakes are buttons that I bought from Hobby Lobby.

Now don't forget to check out our blog hop this week between our personal blogs and Capadia designs. We are showing off those awesome Creative Memories Cricut cartridges, so you are going to want to take a peek. Click on the links below to check it out!
