I had lots of fun creating my wood. I started by stamping some of the tree trunks directly on the card using second generation impressions. Then I stamped a couple which I embossed with clear powder. Then I created the background using Distress inks - I went for an late evening sunset with a warm glow at the bottom of the image and the night sky starting to come in at the top. I stamped another three trees in darker brown, heat embossed them with clear powder and cut them out. I stamped the little deer and the bird on white card, coloured with Copic markers, cut them out and edged them with a black marker. I adhered the extra trees and cute animals to the card. I used a white gel pen to add some accents and some snow falling - see the snow on his nose! I finished the front with a pun sentiment. On the inside I cut a mat layer of design paper and added a greeting to the white panel.
As this card has features furry animals I'm submitting it to the current challenge at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge - CIC#331, and the sunset glow means I'm playing along with Inkspirational - INK#93 where the cue word is GLOW.
