5 Minute Framed Snowman Card

My friend Jody dropped by the other day with a new border punch she wanted me to check out. (It was from Micheal's and was light blue in color) ...The funny thing was that I was at the very moment she arrived, fooling around and trying to come up with ideas to use with my own Border Punch Collection, including Stampin' Up!'s new scallop border I picked up one of my precut white pieces and gave her punch a whirl and in about 10 seconds had the frame done. Since it had the snowflakes, I grabbed a little snowman image from the Merry & Bright set and stamped it in the middle, touched it with a couple markers and pulled out the red ribbon...decided I also needed a red backing for the white piece, so I used a scrap. At this point I wished I had used light blue on the little guy's hat, but I went with Bashful Blue anyway (It does look more like Cool Carribean, doesn't it? That would work good too, but it is Bashful!). I ran it through my new Big Shot with my Cuttlebug A2 Snowflakes Template to add a tough of frostiness to it, attached it to the front and Voila! My quicky card! How do you like it?
C-Ya Later!
