Snowy days


Quick post today.  Really should be cracking on with some other cards I've been asked to make but got distracted by Freshly Made Sketches.  Here's the sketch - 


I've been having a play with the Welcome Christmas set, more cards to show later, and thought the scene with the children on the sledge would fit the square in the centre.  The rest of the card evolved from there. 

Here's how I made my card - The figures are stamped in Night of Navy.  I tore a piece of Whisper White and used it as a mask to sponge in a sky of Night of Navy and Bashful Blue.  Then reversed it and added it along the bottom which was covered in Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  This panel was mounted onto Night of Navy card stock then added onto Whisper White which has been embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  Before attaching to the Night of Navy card stock, I added a strip of Bashful Blue with snowflakes from Serene Snowflakes stamped in Night of Navy.  For the circle, I used the snowman tag from Tags Till Christmas but instead of punching the whole tag, I used the 1" inch circle punch to just highlight the snowman.  Then popped him on a Dimensional.  Perhaps the children made him before heading home?! 

This was fun but now I've got to settle down to what I should be doing.  Ta ta for now and thanks for your visit. x
