Christmas Kitsch Snowman Card

I just got the new Anna Griffin Christmas Kitsch cartridge, so of course I had to make a card.  This snowman caught my eye so I decided to start with him.

I cut the snowman out at 5" using my Cricut Explore machine.  The base of the snowman is cut from some olive green paper. The top  layer of course is from white. After cutting the layers I sprayed the white layer with some general purpose adhesive and covered it with some Hero Arts Prisma fine glitter. I hope you can see the sparkle on him.

For my card I started with a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" white card base. I added a red mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and then my patterned paper mat cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".   I rounded the two outside corners using my Corner Chomper and the 1/2" side.

I layered the red  mat and the patterned paper mat together and then wrapped some bakers twine around the card 3 times and then tied it in a knot in the center of the card.  I then added those two layers to my card base. My snowman is attached to the card with some foam tape.

My sentiment is embossed with some WOW! opaque white embossing powder. It says, Snowmen are built on flake at a time.
