Let it Snow Envelope - MCT Day 5 of the 5 Days of Christmas

Hello!  Today is the last day of the 5 Days of Christmas with My Creative Time.  The Design Team sure has given us quite a bit of inspiration this week!
Today I made an envelope using the Stitched Envelope die and a snowman I put together using my Gypsy.
I used "A Day in December" for the sentiment and one of the "Fun Stitched Edges" dies on the bottom of the patterned paper.
 I designed my snowman with my Gypsy.  The scarf and nose I cut by hand.
 
 
My Supplies:
Christmas Cheer Cricut Cartridge for 3 circles cut at 1.65", 2.08", 2.78" and welded together with my Gypsy
Gypsy Wanderings Cricut Cartridge for stick arms cut at 3.29" 
Refelections Christmas 6x6 paper pad  -  Echo Park
Pinefeather, Scarlet Jewel, Dark Chocolate, Orange Zest, and Rustic White card stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Jolees Gems
Rich Cocoa ink  -  Memento
eyelets, glitter, brads and hemp
 
Sadly this is my last post as a member of the My Creative Time Design Team.  I wish all of the members who have been asked to continue on the team the best of luck.  AND good luck to all of you who have submitted projects!
I hope you will continue to follow my work and sign up for my email posts.  THANK YOU to all of you for visitng and leaving such wonderful comments for me over the last few years!
Enjoy your day :)!!!!!
