I started with a red card base, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I cut a blue and white polka dot paper 1/8" smaller, inked the edges with indian corn blue and ran it through my cuddlebug using the snowflake folder. The background paper came from My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad called Sweater Weather. All other paper came from scraps.
I used quite a few different cartridges for this one. The clouds are from This & That, sized at 1/2" and inked with indian corn blue ink. The trees were cut a various sizes from Paper Doll Dress Up. I colored the trunk with a brown marker and added silver glitter like garland or snow. The snow was cut from the grass border on Plantin Schoolbook under the RolyPoly feature at 1 1/2". I cut three of these, inked the top with indian corn blue, alternately layered them and spread some stardust glitz over them for glistening snow.
The pond was also cut from Plantin Schoolbook, the oval under the Basic feature at 1 1/4". The deer was cut from Campin Critters at 2 1/2" and I just cut the fish off the line. The wreath over the antlers came from Christmas Solutions and was cut a 1" and added green glitter glue. The candy canes were cut at various sizes from Tis the Season. I cut these out of red and added the white stripes with my gel pen. I popped up the deer and a couple of the candy canes with foam tape.
I didn't have a stamp that I liked for a sentiment on this card so I typed it up in a word doc and used a free font called Beyond Wonderland. I had some scraps from the same Sweater Weather paper pad left from another project, so I trimmed them to 1/4" and added to the top and bottom.
Hope you enjoy!! And I'm sending a BIG thank you to my husband for the creative idea!!!!
