One Stary Night . . .

Hello Friends!
I have a card to share today which was created as my inspiration card for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.
I started out with just wanting something simple using the Poppystamps 'Distressed Benson Corner' as my starting point but as you can see ... it grew and grew and grew!  LOL

Here's a list of the dies I used on today's card:

As you can see, I cut the Evergreen Trio twice ... two different shades of green, then off set them to create a 'forest'.  The main country house die was cut in white, then the different pieces were cut in accent colors.  The tree background in green ... house background in goldenrod and the roofs in black.
The 'snow' was created using Marvy 'Snow Marker' which when heated puff up.

I love the layers this card ended up having ...
and to think I was originally going for CLEAN and SIMPLE!  lol
Maybe next time!

Remember you can find a WIDE RANGE of dies in the Dies R Us Store and create your own wintery scene cards such as this in no time at all!   Also be sure to sign up for the Newletter so you don't miss out on the surprise sales!
