Snowman Christmas Card

Here's a card I made to a online Cricut Circle Canadian Members Christmas card swap (which was open to non-Canadians as well):

The size of the card  was to be 4.25 x 5.5" and we had 17 participants, so we each had to make 17 of our cards for the swap.  I centred my card around this pretty filigree snowman stamp and embossed aluminum foil.

Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression
Cricut Ashlyn's Alphabet Cartridge (frame cut centre contour hidden with Design Studio)
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder from the Winter Wonderland embossing folders set
Inkadinkadoo Clear Stamp
Embossing Pad and Stampendous Embossing Powder
Ribbon from my stash
Studio G chalk ink (to outline on the Cricut cuts)

Self-adhesive foam mounts
Self-adhesive rhinestones from the Dollar Store
Aluminum foil (folded so it is two layers thick)
Cardstock from my stash

Thanks for looking.
