Today's Mistletoe Monday challenge is
to create a card that includes a winter scene.
Try thinking outside the box, perhaps you don't own stamps that will make a
winter scene but you have a diecut machine, stickers, digi stamps or print a free coloring page.
I used a Bendy Snowman Scene cut file purchased in the Silhouette Store. I used Bazzill card stock in very pale blue, light blue and medium blue for the background. For the snowman, I used Stampin' Up's Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Gray and Real Red (which I also used on the fence) and a scrap of Only Orange for the carrot nose. The trees are cut from scrap paper. ~Kim
I used a cut design called Christmas Cards Sleigh from Cricut and cut it on my Explore. I have made this card in the past as a Shaker card and used solid colors. This time I decided to change things up a bit and use different patterns. That is a stretch for me because I don’t tend to mix a lot of things up, but I love quilts and thought of this as an appliqué design. I didn’t like anything I picked out for a busy background and so stayed with a solid, but one with some shading in it. I also went to ink around the edges and messed it up a little, so I ended up highlighting by swirling on some distress ink on the frame. The paper is from a 6 ½” pad by Kaiser Craft called Holy Night. The stamp is CTMH – Just to Say and the ink is Tim Holtz Distress – Fired Brick. ~Denise
