Snowy Christmas

Finally the garden is slowing down and I am back into the swing of making cards again. I decided I still need a lot of Christmas cards so today I worked on a design using Gina K. Designs stamps and one die.

The stamps I used were the evergreen tree line from the Gina K. Designs Northwoods set and the snowman from the Wishing You Joy Gina K. Designs TV Kit.

My base card is white card stock. Over this base I added a background made with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. But before I embossed it I added some clear Versamark ink to the raised dots and then embossed it. Next I took some Gina K. Designs white embossing powder and added it to the Cuttlebug design and heat set it.

Then on white card stock I stamped the tree line and cut along the edge of the trees so that could be the next layer of my card. Onto this layer I added the fussy cut snowman by popping him up with some double stick photo tape. Next I added the die cut sentiment from Cheery Lynn Designs and on the snowflakes I added some white pearls. And, I dotted the eye with a red rhinestone gem.

I added Wink of Stella onto the snowman and also below the tree line. I thought this looked a bit more like sparkling snow. The card was then finished by adding a strip of white lace and over that I added a strip of red rhinestones.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Stamp TV Mix It Up Monday Challenge

We are having more gloomy type of days lately and one can feel a hint of Fall in the air as it is much cooler. But I am happy and glad I can be back to making cards and that I am feeling better every day now. Thanks for visiting and for the lovely comments.

God bless,

This is too cute, Verna. Love the red and white and that dotted paper. The hill background is great for the focal snowman.

I made a little scene card using stamps for my May Rudolph Days Challenge entry. I had to add a bit of my own hand drawing to get the look ...
