This was quite fiddly and took more time than I like to put into a card,
but I had so much fun doing it!
I had a stitched square lying about so I masked the edges and
tore a piece of paper a couple of times for snowbanks.
I used Distress ink to sponge the sky and add some shadows to the snowbanks.
It ended up looking like dirty snow! But I had die cuts to camouflage that.
Sprinkling a little water over the sponging added some dimension to the sky.
The sleigh was cut from snippets of Inka Gold smoosh and Champagne Foil.
The little packages and bows were cut from snippets of foil and Inka Gold smoosh.
The sentiment was heat embossed with gold.
(Finding the right sentiment seemed to be the hardest part of the card!
No, wait, it was the sponging. I'm really bad at sponging!)
The Poppystamps challenge this month is
I masked the edges of the stitched square die cut to leave a white frame.
I also used a piece of torn paper as a mask for the snow.
The dies are from Poppystamp.
Oh, oh, it looks like they've been discontinued.
I hope this will still count.
Merry Monday 262 is hosted by my friend Linda this week.
And since all those little gifts were cut from snippets, I'm going to skip over to
Where our dear friend Darnell is Guest Designing so I know there'll be fun in the Playground!
It's ANYTHING GOES CHRISTMAS
