Stampin' some CAS snow

Hi everyone, it's time for another Stamp Simply challenge! This week, Sharon has challenged us to make a CAS card that has SNOW on it. I loved this challenge. I needed 3 more Christmas cards and CAS was in definitely in order and now I'm done!! Whew!

My card uses the long retired, but will always be my favorite snowman image, Frosty!! Isn't this guy the cutest? When I am short on time, I like to find a layout that has a similar image size and copy it. I used a layout from this Anya post a couple months ago.

The snow is from a couple of lines from liquid applique -very easy to do with alot of impact! (quick TIP, apply the liquid applique BEFORE you glue the cardstock layers together as the heat gun will warp the glue and make your them funky!!)
The pattern paper is MME Merry Days of Christmas -which is a perfect match to the SU Baja Breeze colored felt snowflakes! The sentiment is from Verve's Holly Jolly. This is CAS, so it's fairly straight forward. I do have to say, once I bought my Score-Pal, making CAS cards went to the next level. Scored lines on the card base make a huge difference don't 'cha think?

Sharon has Mr. Linky up and working, so be sure to link up your challenge card to her bloggy if you play along!! And, be sure to use keyword SSNOTIME118 when you upload to SCS. Be sure to stop by the team's blogs to see all their altered cards!
