Leaping Deer Forest Scene
Arched Window and Christmas Tree

Snowflakes, Fir Trees and Sledding

Good Monday morning.  I am so intrigued with all blue and white snowy cards.  I was flipping through an older 12 x 12  Holiday Slab and noticed the blue and white snowflake paper.  It struck me how cute it would look as the background for an all white scene.  I can’t seem to stop making scenes.  I keep thinking I need to  make myself move on to more Christmas floral and wreath cards but somehow it just doesn’t seem to be happening.  Smile

This was really simple and fast to make.  It took me longer to decide how to arrange my trees and snowflakes than it did to cut and attach everything.  Do you find the creative thinking and planning takes longer than the actual construction of the card?  I seem to fly by the seat of my pants during the design process and keep changing things along the way and end up somewhere other than where I originally planned.  How about you?

I try to stick with the design rule of using odd numbers of images in my design.  I usually makes things lots more interesting.  Note three snowflakes, five fir trees  and one sled. small snowflake set.  The crimped ground snow was the first thing attached to the base.  Next I arranged the trees, attaching with mounting tape and leaving a nice blue space between for the head of the sledder to show up well.

The snowflakes were attached to the base with glossy accents.  The sled image was cut twice and attached together with mounting tape to add a little dimension but it doesn’t really show in the photo. I cut the scarf off the die cut and used a white ribbon to create a scarf for an extra pop of texture.  I finished by popping the sledder up on mounting tape.  I love silhouettes and especially in all white.
