Brrr! IT'S COLD OUTSIDE at the Sisterhood of Crafters


 Hello my friends!

Today I have a card for the new challenge over on The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Our theme today is:
 Brrrr!  It's Cold Outside
 This winter so far has been sharing a LOT of SNOW in some areas and that all began even before Christmas.  Our weather has sure changed over the past 50 years!!

Anyways ... I've had this 8x8 Thomas Kinkade 'Painter of Light' paper pack for YEARS that I purchased from the Cornish Heritage Farms company (circa 2008) and thought one of the images would work perfectly for today's theme.  Looks BEAUTIFUL but yet VERY COLD!  LOL

I triple matted the image to pull out the various neutral tones in the image then used a scrap strip of the soft gold to punch out a few snowflakes.  Crystal Stickles was also added to the center of the snowflakes.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!

  1. This card is just lovely and I really like that unique fold design too. I remember CHF and all the wonderful products they made! Snow is in our forecast later today and then more rain rain rain again. Stay warm!

  2. A beautiful winter scene, the paper couldn't be any more perfect for our challenge, kind of looks like it does outside right now!

  3. Brrrr, that's a chilly scene for sure but it's got a warm vintage vibe going on. I love how you carried the color through the rest of your card. Beautifully done, Darlene! I still have some of the TK stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms.
