Snow Couple with Snowflakes Christmas card

For the 3rd week of October 2019, 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge blog has picked the theme prompt of snowmen/snowman, so my response is to go with a different layout style with my take on this.

One reason is I don't have much of Christmas or winter patterned papers, just a 6" square paper pad of MSLO's 2018 Christmas patterns. I've got lots of embellishments especially ribbons and a few stamps but those supplies are out in the garage right now. So my attempts for this card are to get crafty and creative with a few accents that are handy on our dining table [aka indoor craft space]:
