Woodland Snow Ride

This card is for a challenge at The Paper Players challenge #311.  It's a theme challenge and the theme is circles.  I first embossed a piece of white card stock with the Woodlands Embossing Folder from Stampin" Up.  I used my brayer to apply Broken China distress ink on the inside of the folder for the skyline color.  I then stamped in the tree from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set and then embossed my cardstock.  I cut my image into a circle shape and attached it to the scallop circle shaped card base in olive green.  I die cut my sleigh from chocolate brown card stock and also cut a sliver of white to make the snow for the bottom of the circle.  Once my image was glued onto my card base I used the sparkle glaze from Mod Podge to dab onto the entire card front to make every thing sparkle.  I made a bow using the bow maker punch to finish off the card.

For the inside I had a die cut that says Merry Christmas so I backed that with an oval cut from the olive green.  Although I never went on a sleigh ride when I was young, I lived where we had lots and lots of snow and I always thought it would be fun.  We had a hay wagon and cow that I don't suppose would have pulled us very fast or very far!  Living in AZ now snow is just a memory and I like it that way.

  4. How clever Judy - love your round card and agree with Claire, this scene feels so realistic - I can almost hear the sleigh swishing through the snow. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!
