Snow card for Tuesday Challenge

Made by Momo's Tuesday Challenge is to make something with a "Snow theme". Papertake Weekly Challenge is Cold and Frosty Morning.   I made a quilt card topper with a snowman.  The instructions for the quilt topper are further down in the post.

Here's my entry:

And some closeups:

And the inside:

8.5" x 5.5" Craft card stock - folded for card 4/25" h x 5.5" w
4 - 1" x 6" strips of different colored designer paper or card stock (to make quilt) Note: I used the DCWV Indian Summer Fall Glitter Matstack.  You need a really sharp cutter blade to cut through all the layers to make the quilt.  You may want to use designer paper for your first try at this.  I also used Score-Tape to glue my strips through all phases.
5" x 6" piece of white paper - to design quilt
5" x 6" piece of plain card stock (for quilt backing)
" x " piece of cream card stock for front wording
" x " piece of cream card stock for inside wording
  " ruffled lace
gems, brads, snowflakes - these all came from Michaels
Snowman - also from Michaels this one is furry.

Card instructions:
To make quilt:
These are basic strip quilting instructions.  Glue the four strips of colored paper in the order you wish to the white paper in vertical stripes

Cut the paper horizontally into 1" strips
You will have a smidgen left at the end - discard or use for something else.

Glue stips to plain card stock, alternating the blocks to form the quilt.  I hope these will explain the cut and move to the top phase.  It's simple once you start.

Trim the quilt piece to the desired size  mine is 4" by 5.25".

Attach ruffled lace to top and bottom of quilt with score tape or sticky strip.  Adhere quilt to card front.  Embellish.

Place wording on cream card stock pieces and trim to fit your card (mine was printed on the computer) the front is trimmed to 1/2" by 1".  I used the EK Success scalloped scallops punch on the top and bottom-piece measures 5" x 3.5"
