Walking in a Winter Wonderland . . .

OMG I don't even want to think about this yet!  LOL

Hello my friends!
Today I have a fun wintertime creation to share for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.  
I know summer is flying by quickly but I'm going to try to stretch it out as long as I can!  But, as we all know, those snowy days will be here before we know it ... hopefully it will wait until December ... Christmas snow is okay!!

This was a fun and easy card to create and I love the end result.
The dies I have used today are:

Memory Box - Dies - Simple Evergreen Frame

Memory Box - Dies - Evergreen Trio
Sue Wilson Designs - Festive Collection -  Winter Wonderland

I began by cutting out my Memory Box Simple Evergreen Frame then thought it would be so easy to simply sponge the background (popped out portion) blue and reinsert the frame ... half the work is DONE!!

Next I die cut 6 of the Evergreen Trio die and stacked them in two rows in front of the larger trees in the frame ... to add depth.    On the middle row, I actually off set the 3rd trio die cut for yet another depth of dimension.

I added the sentiment die words, used Nuvo white crystal drops for 'dotting' the I's and dabs of Diamond Stickles for my snowflakes.  Viola!

Oops ... nearly forgot to mention!
Don't forget to use both the POSITIVE and the NEGATIVE of your word dies when possible!  It's always fabulous to get a Two for One!!!   Here I've adhered my negative sentiment die cut to a piece of red card stock and simply cut around.  Now it's all ready for another wintertime creation.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and as always . . .

I am not ready for winter either but this is certainly a beauty, I love how you inlaid but the gave it more dimension with the second and third group of trees, great idea!! Love your touch with the stickles for the snow too!

All these beautiful white trees are gorgeous! I didn't get much snow at all last year... or come to think of it, the year before that. So I am READY for it! I want a very huge white Christmas this year... I don't want to be thinking of that time of the year just yet... but it's a'coming! I am just trying to get through everything that has been going on here and doing all I can to rest and prepare myself for this Saturday... as it's my daughter's 14th birthday party and we are also having an evening memorial to honor my uncle who passed away on the 19th of June. Going to be a very long weekend. Hope you are having a wonderful day.

GORGEOUS!! I love that rich blue color, and the inlaid trees in white are stunning. Great use of those dies!!!

What a beautiful scene this combo of dies made! Gorgeous! Gosh, the negative of that winter wonderland die is just as perfect as the positive. I have some trees similar to this, but with the inlaid trees in the background this looks awesome!
