Snowy Scene


Happy Sunday, everyone!  Gosh, October is flying by.  Less than 2 weeks before we leave on our trip.  So I thought I better get some more Christmas cards done for my stash, since there won't be any crafting while we are enjoying time with family in Florida.

For today's card, I again used the dryer sheet technique.  This time to create a sparkly snowy scene. ( You can find the SCS tutorial HERE.) .  Images used are Lovely as a Tree and Welcome Christmas by SU! for MDS.  Inspiration for today's card came from the lovely creations in the SCS gallery that combined these two sets... Thanks, everyone!  For the background layer, I dry embossed a piece of silver cardstock with a Sizzix embossing folder.  Silver metallic paste was rubbed on the surface before heat embossing with silver embossing powder.  Then, it was just a matter of layering some die cuts on top of the background and adding the image and some rhinestones.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
CHNC Challenge 43 -- Make a Scene

Have a great day and happy crafting!
