Snow much nerdy peeps

I have noticed something lately.  I am using red, kraft & stickles a whole lot.  I just can't help it, it's helping me get into the holiday spirit.  I kinda, sorta, really like snowmen this year too?!?  They are just so cute!  
Today, I am showing a fun holiday card using the December stamp set from Avocado Arts.  It has a few different snowmen to build, some snowflakes, cute sentiments and a sled (I know I'm forgetting something else, so I apologize in advance).  
To make this card, I stamped the sled in versa mark ink, onto the kraft card base.  While that was drying I cut/embossed card stock, using the Bracket Edgabilities from Spellbinders.  Before adhering the two pieces together, I stamped snowflakes & the sentiment (I added stickles to the center of the snowflakes).  The snowman was paper pieced together on separate card stock, then adhered with foam tape.  I adhered the pieces together, and then to the card front.  I was going to add twine or something, but I saw these Zva crystals I have been hoarding, which seems like forever.  I'm done with hoarding my stuff, so I slapped that swirl right on my card without even thinking twice about it (I lie, I thought about it lol).  I kind of wanted to round the corners, but the crystals were blocking the way...hindsight is always 20/20.  
Well, make sure to visit the other designers to see what fun stuff they created.
