52CCT - Theme ....

.... Morning! It's time for our new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT24-16, and this week it's our theme challenge. Jacqueline has picked CHRISTMAS LANDSCAPES for us. I had fun making my card:

Stamps: Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz Crazy Talk; Kanban - Christmas Trees
Inks: Distress - Weathered Wood, Chipped Sapphire, Pumice Stone, Antique Linen, Aged Mahogany, Cracked Pistachio; Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Crumb Cake
Dies: SU/Sizzix - Sleigh Rides Edgelits
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU DP - Crumb Cake; SU Card - Crushed Curry; Glitter


I started off by sponging on Distress inks at the top of the card to create a night sky. I used the dies to cut the trees, houses and sleigh. I used Distress inks to colour the die cut images. I adhered some yellow card behind the houses to suggests lights and then I adhered the panels to the card. I finished off the front with lots of glitter and a simple sentiment. On the inside I cut a mat of design paper and added a very simple greeting.

Adorable Deborah, j'avoue que je suis fan de cette découpe traîneau, la cerise sur le cupcake de cette jolie scène, biz

Wonderful Christmas winter scene, and I love how you've defined the snow banks with the glitter.
Thanks so much for playing along at ATSM this week, Anita x
