Santa Snowy Scene

Hello. As the weather here is grey and rainy, I have spent some time in my craft room. Here is the card:

This card used stamp sets from several companies, some masking, and generally some forward planning on my part. It’s a good job I had nothing better to do.

Some other views:

sorry for the blurry sign šŸ™‚

I decided to do another slimline card – well, DL for us – I ordered some DL card bases so started with that. The upper row of trees is from Mama Elephant, and as this row is only wide enough for a smaller card, I stamped once on one end, then again on the other end – then masked some trees off and stamped to cover the middle………I filled in a tiny little gap with an artliner.

Then – the next row of trees using a Lawn Fawn stamp set – one side, then the other – but these were a little longer, so I only stamped twice – and filled in the gap with the artliner, knowing my Santa would be there at the end.

The images from MFT – stamped, coloured and die cut out. Once placed down, there were some gaps, so I stamped, coloured, and cut some more little trees from the Lawn Fawn set – all stuck down as you see.

Some Copic BG00 for some snowy hillsides. Then I remembered that the colours for the Color Throwdown Challenge needed some silver….hmmm… do I go with some glitter, a silver sentiment – but where to put it as I liked the scene as it was and didn’t want to cover much of it up…..

How about a banner that Santa would hold? No – would cover the trees…

How about a signpost? Now then – I went with that one – searched through the Color My Life app – there we are…..but the signpost when stamped has snow on it and a sentiment wouldn’t fit……

So – I coloured a piece of card in brown – a neutral allowed colour – stamped the sign post alongside it – die cut the sign post – coloured the post itself, then cut out the stamped and silver heat embossed sentiment – stuck it on top of the signpost…….hey presto!

Phew…….!

Then I decided to add some white gel pen highlights to some images – but stayed away from adding glitter or glimmer – I just didn’t want to make any mistakes now the card was together. This time – I knew when to stop!
