When I saw this theme I knew I had to use the wonderful Alpine Christmas (I think the alpine skiing might have had a bit of influence too). I owe inspiration to a couple of cards - Laurie's and Kelly's cards. I've used the colours from the current Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge - WMSFC#11 - I just love them! You have until Thursday 20th February, 5.00pm to join the Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge!
I made the card from Island Indigo, cut a panel of Elegant Eggplant on which I stamped the sentiment and snowflakes in Versamark and heat embossed them with white powder. I cut a panel of white card slightly smaller then the purple and stamped the mountain range. To make the really dark teal colour I inked up the mountains in black, stamped off once and then inked again with Teal Zeal - result a nice dark teal. I stamped the alpine village using purple for the houses, soft purple for the snow covered roofs and light teal (Island Indigo stamped off once) for the trees. I used the matching die to cut out the mountain and then attached it to the card to reveal the sentiment and snowflakes. I finished the front by adding glitter. For the inside I cut a white panel, added a bit of a village and a lovely Christmas verse.
For more inspiration with the Christmas Landscape theme - check out the cards from the rest of the team - as always, they are just fab! Looking forward to seeing your creations.
My plans for the weekend include a mix of watching the Winter Olympics and some crafting. Kathryn has a friend coming for a sleepover, so I won't see them for most of the time and Jonathan is off to a photo shoot. It's going to be a fun time. Hope you have a good weekend, be safe!
