Winter Wonderland Christmas Card...

Hello friends!  Hope you're having a wonderful day!  I'm sharing another of my projects in the Tim Holtz Holiday Inspiration 2017 Series.  Christmas is going to be here before I know it, so I'm continuing to work on my Christmas cards.  This one is a fun wintery scene, I think the Ice Skates pair perfectly with the Simple Snowflake background.
Let me walk you through how I put it together.  To start with I embossed a sheet of Distress Watercolor Cardstock using the Simple Snowflakes Texture Fade.  Then sealed front of embossed cardstock with Distress Collage Medium and let air dry.  I also sealed another plain sheet of Distress Watercolor Cardstock with Distress Collage Medium and let air dry.  Doing this allows the Distress Crayons to blend nicely on cardstock.  I die cut Festive Greenery from sealed Distress Watercolor Cardstock.  I colored all the Festive Greenery and embossed Simple Snowflake background with shades of blue Distress Crayons and blended with my finger.  To add a touch of shimmer I applied a little Metallic Distress Crayon and I just love the sparkle…and they blend beautifully.
I die cut the Ice Skates using grungeboard, but you could also use mat board.  I colored the Ice Skates with Distress Paint.  Then did a little sanding to distress surface a bit.  I laced the skates using waxed string.
I cut my A2 card base from kraft cardstock.  Then layered with distressed brown Classic Kraft, silver Metallic Kraft and embossed Simple Snowflake background.  I assembled the Ice Skates/Festive Greenery and attached the word "Joy" from the Holiday Talk Metallic Stickers.  It's a shimmery winter wonderland...
 I hope you'll give it a try!  You can find the supplies I've used via the links below.  If you have any questions please let me know I love your comments, I truly appreciate each and everyone of them!  As always thanks for stopping by and I'll see you next time!  xx
