Winter Wonderland


Sharing a CAS card that I made today using KLM Digital DesignSkier Gnome for the main image and Sledding Gnome for the sentiment from the new December 2022 release. I tried Cross-Country skiing a few times. I was so bad at it, that once was enough for any of my friends. They said I was too dangerous on them. LOL! I even skied down into a tree to avoid knocking over 3 people once going down a small hill. My friend was laughing so hard it took him a little while before he could help me back up away from the tree. But, by the time we got back he was freezing and I was hot from all of the hard work I was doing trying to keep up to him. He was a professional skier. That was the last time he ever went with me. Then there was the time that there were about 6 of us. They made the mistake of asking me to go first side-stepping up the hill. I almost made it to the top when my foot slipped and yes, I knocked everyone over like a bunch of bowling pins. LOL! Guess what??? They never went with me again either. Oh well! Some things are just not meant to be!!! As you may have guessed by now. Downhill is definitely out of the question for me.

To make my card this week, I started with a 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. Recollections – Christmas Plaids paper was cut to the same size and adhered directly to the base using double-sided tape! The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. With my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies, I die cut the printed image and sentiment.

I coloured in the image and then added in the snow in the sky using a combination of a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen and UNIPosca PC-3M White marker. The snow at the bottom was created using a combination of Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and DecoArt Glamour Dust. To puff up the snow, heat was applied using Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. I added a little more glitter along the very top of the snow with Stickles – Star Dust. The completed image was then popped up onto the card using U-Line double-sided tape.
