Snow Front, Masculine Christmas or Holiday Card

As I promised, no Paper Pumpkin card today.  Though I have several other ones I'd like to make from that kit. I thought last months kit was fun but this one is just as fun and prettier because it's Christmas themed. I found this pretty card on Pinterest.  It's kind of busy but yet it's got some fun things going on in it. You've got the sun setting behind the mountains, pine trees in rows, a cute snowman and a little dear by a pond. You can see the original card here

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Mossy Meadow card stock. 

The focal piece was die cut using the largest "Stitched Rectangle" dies. The layer behind it is Coastal Cabana. I tried to cut it 4" x 5-1/4" but the stitched die piece was not 1/8" smaller, so you will need to adjust the size on your paper cutter.  My focal piece is Very Vanilla card stock.

I stamped the two mountains first using Soft Suede ink. I used a sponge dauber and So Saffron to make the sun.

The trees on the right were added first and then the green hills. Both were stamped using Mossy Meadow ink. Then the trees in the front and middle were added.

Balmy Blue that was stamped off once was used for the blue hills. The snowman and pond were also stamped using Balmy Blue ink.

The deer was stamped using Soft Suede ink.

I took my Basic Black marker and colored in the snowman hat and I used the Pumpkin Pie marker to make the snowman nose orange.

The layers were taped together and a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock was added to the inside and the card was done.

There was a lot of stamping on this card but it was worth it. It's a great winter/holiday card. It could even be used for a masculine birthday, get well, sympathy or thinking of you card.  It was a fun card to make!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop in today,                                                                          Wanda
