I must have a thing for snowmen!

I seem to decorate with them, and the last two winter birthday cards that I have done have both used snowmen in them!  Here is one that I made using the snowman cut from the Cricut Cartridge Christmas Cheer.


I cut the actual snowman out of white glitter paper, and I used my Expression so that I could use the Multi-Cut function.  This allowed me to cut the same image twice right on top of where the original cut was.  I found that this works really well when you are cutting through thicker paper, like the glitter paper.

The hat, scarf, arms and nose are all combined in one cut, but I cut it from both brown and orange paper so that I could do the hat and arms in brown, and the nose in orange.  For the scarf I actually layered the two cuts by cutting off the fringe of the orange scarf and layering it over the brown scarf cut.
