Crochet Snowman Card

Today I'm posting the second card from the 'Snowman Series'. This one has a cute little crochet snowman that can be used as a refrigerator magnet, a pin or an applique. The pattern is my gift to you. Enjoy.
Supplies used
Paper: Light blue and white cardstock
Tools: Cutting/embossing machine (Sizzix), snowflakes embossing folder (The Paper Studio), snowflakes border punch (Martha Stuart), Circle punches, Winter Wonderland glitter glue (Stickles), red, white, orange and white yarn, crochet hook size G, tapestry needle.
Embellishment: Crochet snowman and yarn sentiment phrase 'Merry'.

Round 2: 2 SC in each st around, sl st, fasten off, leave a long tail to sew the head to the body

Earmuffs:

Sl st along the top of the snowman head until you reach the place on the other side of the head parallel to the first muff. Repeat Rd 1. Sew earmuffs to the head, fasten off , and weave in ends.

Nose:
Using a tapestry needle and orange yarn, weave the yarn into a carrot shape. 

Eyes, smile and buttons:
Knots made with black yarn

Scarf:

For a magnet, punch two circles out of white cardstock and glue them to the back of the snowman before you glue the magnetic strip. That way it will be firmer.
