Winter Scene Card

This is my first scene card. I've seen a lot of scene cards but have never had the confidence to try one. I'm really glad I made this snow scene came out pretty nice for a first try.

The stamp set is SU! Lovely As A Tree and the sleigh is an old set by CTMH. I stamped the trees with a retired color...SU! Forest Foliage. Love this color and will miss it when my stamp pad dries out. The sleigh was stamped with a chalk ink. For the sky color I just used a light blue, also a purple that was sponged/layered to the white card stock. I also sponged garden green lightly around the tree base. I also used a PTI snowflake stamp that was versarmarked and embossed with a sparkly embossing powder. Don't think that shows to well in the scan.

I ran a piece of clear acetate through my CB Swiss Dots folder. This was then place over the stamped winter scene... to give the affect of falling snow. The acetate was then adhered with a small strip of mono in the corner. Definitely a different look and technique for me but I think I will keep this in mind for a future project.

And I did finish all my Christmas cards and they were mailed out on Saturday! WooHoo!
Now onto baking Christmas cookies.

Thanks for stopping by
