Christmas at The Sisterhood of Crafters

Hello Everyone!
It's time for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
 This will be our last challenge for 2017 ... the team deserves a long rest so we will begin our challenges again on January 10th with Sistah Diane hosting and the theme will be FRAMES!!  I hope you'll come back in the new year to join in our fun once again!

Today our hostess is Agata and the theme she has chosen is ...


I was playing around with some NEW and OLD products for this creation ... 
what do you think?

 To create this scene, I've used a 'new' to me Falling Snow embossing folder that I saw at BFF Diane's house when I was there last month and just HAD TO HAVE IT for myself.  It's by Sizzix - Tim Holtz embossing folder ... love it!  Another new product I used on this creation is the Sizzix - Tim Holtz  'Tree Line' #661604 die.  I've cut it 3 times ... twice in green then sponged white ink across the top and once in white for the front dimension.

Impression Obsession - Dies - Merry Christmas Flourish
 and the Frantic Stamper 'Reindeer Duo' ... both die sets were cut from DCWV glitter paper.

Frantic Stamper - Dies - Reindeer Duo

3M Dimensional tape was used to create various layers of trees.  The first cut was adhered directly to the card base panel, the second was off set with a single layer of dimensional tape and the white tree line in the foreground was positioned with a double layer of dimensional tape.  I love the outcome ... how about you?

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
My 'sistahs' have created some fabulous creations to help inspire you ... be sure to pop over and check them out!  You have until Christmas Eve - December 24th to join in the fun!!
