Silent Night

I barely have managed to finish my card for the MPS Winter Card Challenge. I have been so in the Halloween mood that this challenge was really a challenge for me. After a bit of time spent looking at papers and my cartridges, here is what I created.

The card base is navy blue with white specs in it (which I love and need to stock up on). It's perfect for a snowy night. I cut the 'snow' from two different glittered papers. One is from the DCWV Glitter stack and is very smooth, and the other is from Target and is more like coarse glitter. The snowy trees I cut from the Very Merry Tags at 4 1/2", 3 3/4", and 2" I cut the bottom layers in white and the top in green, to give the appearance of snow and then added some stickles. I glued the biggest & smallest trees down (the smallest being in the center). The third one I pop dotted to add depth.

I had originally wanted to do a moose because I love moose BUT, then I decided on the deer2 from the Give A Hoot cartridge. I cut the first one at 2" and then the second at 1 1/4". I cut the butterflies off their noses & added eyes for each with a sharpie. On the little deer, I used a white gel pen and added spots to create a fawn. From there, I decided that the bird1 would be cute as cardinals. I cut five of them and added them onto the trees and the deer.

  3. Your Silent Night card is absolutely beautiful! I found your site by following My Pink Stamper and checking out all the card entries. Very good stuff all around. But I really like how you describe how you make your cards and the fact that you put a phrase on the inside. Most sites I've visited never show the inside of a card, and that's really as important as the outside. Will be a frequent visitor! Pat N.
