Snowman Shaped Card

Hello crafty people!  I received my awesome new stamp set from Cardz TV called Merry Everything that I recently won... Woooo Hoooo!!!  So I just had to use it in the new Challenge Mary is hosting over there.
I cased this idea from  
I started by making a shaped card with my Cricut Snow Friends Cartridge.  I decided to do a shadow background for my card cut.  Then I layered my snowman on top in white.  I wish I would have done the shadow with the hat on, but oh well I still like it.  I used Authentique Cozy for my pattern and colored papers.  I love how it makes the vest and cap look like sweater material.  I used a peachy keen face stamp - Winter Faces Stamp Set.  I colored the nose in with spectrum noir #CR10.  The adorable sentiment stamp is from Cardz TV - Merry Everything!
I took this one outside on this scorching hot 106 degree Summer day!  def not snowman weather!  Ugh LOL
I added a second red fur edge to the cap and popped it up on foam tape.  I added the scarf with seam binding ribbon which I made crinkle by balling up and spraying with water and drying with my heat gun.  I also added some sparkly enamel dots for buttons and one on scarf and one more on hat pom.
For the inside a cut a blue card stock layer and cut just a bit off the top of the head so it would fit inside.  I simply stamped Merry Everything! from Cardz TV Merry Everything Stamp Set.  What a fun simple card that many would enjoy receiving for Christmas.  I could do several of these at one time for that super long Christmas card list.

I will be entering into these fun challenges:
