Cuttlebug and Snowflakes

Back in October, I mentioned that my Cuttlebug had decide to take a break.. literally, BREAK!
It was a pretty sad day and until now I have been without the power to emboss.

In desperate times, I even tried to force the plates and embossing folders through the rollers by just giving it a good shove. Needless to say, that took a lot more muscle power than was expected. 

My friend, the smart gal she is, suggested I put the poor little bug in the hospital and schedule some surgery. 
Into the op room we went, and once the little guy was opened up, I discovered one of the gears had fallen off. Fortunately, I found the little screw that keeps it on. So I stuck it back in place, put the bug back together and I am back in embossing business! Who knew  I was a closet engineer. 

Cardz TV has a challenge going, S cards; make a card with an image that starts with "s" which brings me to  my card today. There were snow flurries in the air today, so this card seemed to be perfect for the day.


This little snow boy is an svg file from Treasurebox Desings Winter Wonderland set.I just love the little face. Treasure box has face stamps that work well with most of their files, so it made making this sweet face really easy. Just a few extra white accents really make it cute.

Here's how I did it...
Base card using kraft paper, 6"x6"--all other paper from my scrap box 
Blue stamp mat cut at 5.25" 
Twine from Twinery
Sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps
SVG file from Treasure Box Designs
Snowflakes using the CM pocket punch
Stickles in the snowflakes
