Mistletoe Monday Challenge...Originally Posted 4-4-16
Create a card with a winter scene...bonus if your scene includes a stocking.
I used my silhouette to cut out this out and put some Tim Holtz rock candy glitter on it. ~Denise
I created the front of this card using a cut file from the Silhouette Store; however, I changed it to a print file after coloring it to match the other elements in the card. I then matted it on gold and red mats with decorative "Art Deco" corners. The little stocking in the lower corner is a Recollections button. The business end of this card is actually inside. It's a pop-up with a fireplace and roaring fire with the Christmas stockings hung...awaiting Santa's visit. The l-o-n-g stocking belongs to my dog, Katy. This was created using a cut file; again from the Silhouette Store. The digital papers are from the All That's Magical kit by Traci Reed. ~Kim
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
