A couple more Christmas cards

Hi everyone!  I mentioned earlier in the week that I made a couple more Christmas cards with this month's Gina K release sets and here they are.

First up is a snowman card using the set, Merry Little Christmas.   This card also uses a strip of the snowflake pattern paper from the Blizzard pack.  The lovely ribbon is white wrinkled ribbon which make the perfect double bows because it is so pliable.  I couldn't resist using some of my Circles Nestabilities on this one cause Mr. Happy snowman just looks so cute in a circle!
Next up is another card using the Simple Snowflake set.  Instead of die cutting the snowflakes with a circle die, I fussy cut them instead.  I think they look great both ways.  I took my color combo from the pattern paper which is from the Basic Grey, Aspen Frost 6x6 pad.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!  I'll leave you with a couple of close up pictures and don't forget to vote!
