Winter Fun with Fantabulous Cricut

Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge with Fantabulous Cricut!

Challenge #193
Winter Fun
 Create a winter inspired project
For my project this week I thought of things I enjoy about winter and number one on my list was staying warm so I can enjoy it and not just be cold. I went looking for something warm to share with you all and found this cute little guy on the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge.
I got him all cut out and layered and decided to try using the heat embossing tool I bought a few months back and have not really used. It worked out really well. 
I used a Watermark pen to color the areas I wanted to emboss, placed and dusted off the powder and used the tool to set it.  Not bad for my first time. I recommend having a paintbrush around to clear of the extra powder.
Once my little guy was all set I created a round card for him and used some embossing to put him in the snow. Plus I wanted him to wobble!!!
I really want to go back to making the inside of my cards look a little nicer so I added a cute snowflake and was all set. Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you will join us at FCCB this week.
