Dies R Us Inspiration Blog - Let It Snow!

Hello my friends and welcome back to my blog!
Today I'm sharing a creation for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog where I've used several dies available at the Dies R Us Store to create this fun wintertime scene.

The dies used on this creation are:

Memory Box - Dies - Open Studio - Wrapped Stitch Frames

Yvonne Creations - Dies - Celebrating Chirstmas - Pine Trees

Poppystamps - Dies - Curious Fawn
Poppystamps - Dies - Cute Fawn
Sue Wilson Designs - Mini Expressions - Let It Snow
Here are a few details on creating this card . . .

After die cutting my trees from scraps of white card stock, I added sponged touches of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink - Lucky Clover to indicate some of the pine branch showing through the snow.

My cute little deer were also cut from scraps of white card stock then colored using another Tim Holtz distress oxide ink - Walnut Stain.

To create my snowy ground cover, I simply cut a scrap of white card stock to length that would fit inside my frame then tore it.  Gluing down the first panel then place/gluing the second panel in behind the first.

Next I positioned my trees and glued down the lower portion.  Leaving the upper portion loose for dimension since I intended to pop up my frame after adding my falling snow.

 I've used a white gel pen to create my snow.  I placed my frame die down on my paper to use as a guide since I didn't want snow around the outside of the frame. 

Next it was time to put all my pieces together and finish my card.
With the finishing touch being the sentiment.
