Winter Wonderland

I love scenes of snow covering the ground, trees, buildings and everything in sight. I can't look out my window to see a winter wonderland as I live in Southern AZ, but I can make my own on my cards... so that's what I'm doing again this week.  

I took some white vellum and ran it through my Big Shot with the snowflake embossing folder.  I trimmed it down to the size I wanted and took a picture of it for you on top of my desk so you can see the embossing.   

I attached the embossed vellum with silver brads onto pink cardstock and placed the image of a winter hat on top of it. 

The hat is from MTME's Winter Knits and the paper is from MTME's Feminine Flakes and Fuzzies.  I love these two sets that I used them two weeks in a row!  Below is a side/angle view of the card.  

For the snowflakes I used shiny pink and shiny white cardstock punched with Creative Memories' snowflake punch and attached them with silver brads.

I cut a piece of white cardstock with Magnolia's Leaf and Swirl die and then spread Stickles diamond on top of it. 

I think it added just the right touch.  It gives movement to the card, giving a sense of wind swooshing the snowflakes around a winter wonderland!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I truly appreciate each and every visit and comment.  Don't forget to hop on over the the MTME Pretty Pattern Sketch blog and see what the other designers have prepared for you today.
