Dashing Through the Snow--PP #372

November 26, 2017

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

Our lovely Joanne is the hostess this week!  She has a super fun sketch for all of us!  I love sketches!  I always have so many ideas running around in my head.

Feel free to alter the shapes and where you position your sentiment. As long as the main elements can be seen, how you interpret the sketch is up to you. 

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a background of a snowy patterned paper from my stash.  I trimmed it with a stitched rectangle die.  The white strip is made with white card stock and embossed with an embossing folder.  The little car and sentiment are from Avery Elle Dashing Clear stamp set.  I fussy cut the image and adhered it with stamping dimensionals.  The snowflake is cut with white glossy paper.  I used the Let It Snowflake Too dies from Simon Says Stamp.  I added a rhinestone in the center and a few more around for shine and on the tree.  The sentiment is stamped in black Memento ink.  I added red and white Baker's Twine.
