Winter Wonderland

Hello Everyone,
WOW, Tuesday nite was the monthly get together for the stamping club of which I am a member, and the time flies by between meetings. Well each month we are given a challenge, We are given something to use in making a card or some other project.

We were given this:

Its a card that folds into a 5X5 square with half circles on each of the edges of the square.

I decided to make this a winter wonderland themed card.

Let me share some more pics.

First I cut circles using blue CS, and cut those in half and ran them thru an embossing folder that has snowflakes on it. I attached the half circles on both sides of the half circle card flaps. You will notice that I made a belly band and added 2 white punched snowflakes. That belly band holds the card closed.

 Sliding the belly band off allows the card to be opened .........

to reveal a darling snowman. I used a beautiful die - Snow Corner, placing two of them in opposite corners.

I added a snowman and just added a bit of color to his scarf. Then the sentiment gets added and lastly I used a glue pen to add glittery falling snowflakes, a snowbank and some highlights to the snowman.

Notice those embossed half circles are on the inside of the card as well as the outside.

    Firstly I love the idea of giving someone a challenge in this way. I love the embossed detail on your card. The colour is my favourite and the wrap is the perfect finishing touch. A super way to hide the lovely surprise image inside. Good to have you with us at Natalie and Amy's challenge this month. Hugs Sheryl DT member xx
