Winter Wonderland

This week the challenge at Joan's Gardens is to create a Christmas card with the following requirements:
  • Christmas pattern Paper for background
  • Warn and Cozy Colors
  • Snow Flakes
  • Christmas Trees or Santa or anything reflecting Christmas
The design paper I used for my card is from the MME "Vintage Christmas" 6x6 Pad.  The pretty winter scene is a stamp from the Heartfelt Creations "Winter Season PreCut Set".  It was stamped with black VersaMark ink and clear embossed on a piece of sparkly white card stock.  The beauty of the sparkles does not show up in this photo.  The image was colored then Ranger Distress Stickles added for additional shine.  The image and background were die cut using Spellbinders Oval Nestabilities.     This image was attached with dimensional tape.

In front of the Winter Scene, I added a die cut tree from Marianne Design.  The pine branch at the top was die cut using a Impression Obsession die.  On the branch I added one of the Heartfelt Creations "Petite Poinsettia" flowers.  It was die cut using the matching dies.The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Creations "Winter Season PreCut Set".  It was white embossed then die cut using the Spellbinders "Labels One" die.  The snowflake by the sentiment is from the Marianne Design, COL 1330, die set.   To add snow effects on this card, I used Tulip Puffy paint.  It was heat set and glitter added.  

I hope you will join in on this challenge.  It is so nice to get a head start on all your Christmas cards.

Well I am off for a short vacation with my husband and son up to Canada.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
