Let it snow on the Lawnscaping Challenges blog today!

Hi there!  Today I have this rustic winter card to share with you, which is also featured over on the Lawnscaping Challenges Blog!  I love kraft cardstock for winter cards because it really shows off the snow!   I started off using the Small Stitched Rectangles dies and cut the largest rectangle in the set from both kraft and white cardstock.  Then, I used the Snowy Backdrops die to add snow to the kraft rectangle diecut, and backed it with the white rectangle diecut.  The rectangles were a bit longer than I wanted, so I trimmed about an inch off of the bottom, and used the Stitched Hillside Borders die and Forest Border die to create a ground for my little snowman to stand on.  I stamped, colored and diecut the snowmen, their accessories, and the little birds from the Making Frosty Friends stamp set and then popped them up on the hills with some foam tape. I also adhered the panel up on a kraft card base with more foam tape. I stamped a sentiment from the Snowy Backdrops stamp set onto a strip of kraft cardstock using Versamark ink, and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then I hand cut flag ends on the banner, and popped it up with, you guessed it... foam tape.  I finished the card off with a bow using some jute twine.

Let it Snow

I hope you like it!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
