Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon

From Our House To Yours
Merry Christmas


   Hi friends! I'm posting today to share with you all a winter card for my Design Team day posting at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon. I am pretty sure that I'll never tire from using the birch trees! One of my most favorite files from Lisa! They were the base for my long, business envelope sized card. This long style card is a favorite of mine, though I don't think I create enough with it. Designing with this size is refreshing and I think always creates a more unique card. 

   Last week I posted this post using markers to color all of my die cut pieces. I did a bit of that today as well. The cardinal and the red and pink on the bunny were all colored on white paper, as well as some shading added to the blue pattern paper pieces.

   This just gives another option outside of all colored papers or even doing print and cut. Plus it's a way to get the most out of your markers. I use Spectrum Noir and like them because they are way, way cheaper then Copic.

   To finish this off I added some punched snowflakes, white enamel accents for snow and a stamped and embossed sentiment on vellum. I wasn't thinking to make this exactly a Christmas card but thought the top of the card needed a detail and I didn't have any other stamp sentiment that I liked or had the right sizing..so it turned into a Christmas card anyways!

OMG Your card is as cute as can be!!
You really do come up with the best, cleverest and awesomest ideas ever!
Yes you find great cuts but it's what you do with them that is the most unique and creative ways you use them and your card today is outstanding.
You are just so very talented.
YOU so ROCK!!

I love how you have the moose poking his head through the trees and how everybody is looking at the "camera!"
