Christmas with the Cricut Simple Card Monday! Video!

Hi there, I am Barb from Snowmanlover's Paperie.
I am so honored to be a "Guest Designer" with CWTC!
Thank you, Joy, Melanie, Tammy, Provo Craft and Core'dinations!
I really enjoyed creating my projects, so I hope you like!
My assignments this week are to use the Winter Woodlands and Mini Monogram Cartridges. Some of the projects will focus on both and some will be using one or the other. By the way, I am so into "non-traditional" Christmas colors for some reason this year!

Today is Simple Card Monday. I couldn't stop with just one so here are my two simple cards. Of course you know I love snowmen, so here is my first card!
Click HERE to see the VIDEO on how to make this simple little snowman card.

Simple Snowman

Materials used:
Winter Woodlands Cartridge
Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses Double Sided Patterned Paper
Core'dination's White Washed and Cranberry Cardstock
Paper Trey Ink Cardstock
All the following from Stampin' Up:

Chocolate Chip Ink
Chocolate Chip 1 1/4" Stitched Ribbon and retired curly brown ribbon
Merry Stamp Set (retired)
Stampin' Dimensionals and adhesive

This is my second card with Winter Woodlands. Might I mention, I just adore this Winter Woodlands Cartridge. I feel a real sense of serenity with all the "woodsy" stuff.
