Happy Little Stampers - August Christmas Challenge


It's time once again for another round of Christmas cards over at the Happy Little Stampers challenge blog where the theme this month is Wonderland.

As many of you know I live on the southeastern coast of Florida just five minutes from the coastline.  Our Christmas Wonderland is sandy, hot and humid.  I considered doing a beachy themed holiday card but decided this was the perfect opportunity to create a wintery scene.  Here's what transpired.

I began with all of the die cutting.  The car was cut from glossy red cardstock, the trees from a pine green cardstock, the gifts from patterned paper and the bows and sentiment from glossy black cardstock.  I dipped the tree branches in embossing ink and heat set them with a white embossing powder to create the look of snow.  I used a bit of twine to tie the tree to the top of the car, added a bit of vellum for the inside of the car windows and grounded the scene with some white glitter cardstock.  The snowfall is actually white gems adhered to the aqua card panel.  

I hope you'll come and join us at the blog!  Any Christmas card qualifies but we love to see folks incorporating our prompts.

Right at Home - Holidays are on the Way die set
MFT - Sloped Hills die
Impression Obsession - Tis (the Season) die
HoneyBee Stamps - white gem stickers
Miscellaneous cardstocks and patterned papers

Continue to stay safe and healthy my friends.   _____________________________________________________________________________

    I will admit I do love a snowy Christmas (I'm in the UK) but once it goes I'd like the sun back lol!
