My usual pop of red

Hmm, it seems like my signature style might include adding that little pop of red to my otherwise plain cards.  Oh, how I love that.  This card was so so fun.  I used another image from Papercraft Essentials (I so love them!) then did a partial die cutting thing for the snowman's hecka tall hat.  Isn't he cute?!  There's really a lot going on with this card if you look closely but at a glance it's so simple.  Happy sigh.

My current plan is to use this as a birthday card (lots of winter birthdays in my world), maybe with the sentiment "happy belated birthday!  I'm just helping you s-t-r-e-t-c-h out the celebration" (from Stampendous).  Cute!  And, yes, I will inevitably be late for somebody's birthday LOL.

The Details: 
Papercraft Essentials image, Spectrum Noir, Hammermill cardstock for the snowman and layer behind snowman, black card stock from my old stash, PTI card stock in white (base), Spellbinders die, Paper Studio ribbon and embossing folder, Memory Box Resting Birds dies.

I'm entering this in Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes, Seize the Birthday, CASology, Crazy 4 Challenges Favorite Stamp Set, Jingle Belles, CAS(E) this Sketch!, and Wordplay Saturday Anything.
