Sledding Fun!

This colorful card will brighten up anyone's day! I have a sentiment for Christmas but you can add "Let It Snow" to the bottom for a fun, winter "pick me up" card!

I stamped the playful snowman image from Stampendous Impressions on Copic friendly paper.  (Not sure of the name but the code was CRP234. If you can't find this exact stamp set, use another snowman image.)  My paper was Neenah solar white cardstock and I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink which is also Copic friendly. Stamp your image and color it. Cut the design out leaving a small border around the image.

For the card base there are several options. I used a Sizzix die for my base and background papers. You can also use a Silhouette cut file from Lori Whitlock. Both options will give you the same result. Cut out a base in desired color using cardstock. Then cut liner papers that coordinate with your base paper. I used pink cardstock and a bright blue for my base papers. Scrap paper works great for these pieces! Attach papers to base after they are cut out and add your main image to front of card as shown.

To add interest to the side, I cut out some triangle scribble trees in various sizes from the Silhouette Design Store. They vary in size from 1 inch to 3.5 inches tall. (Including stumps)
Add the trees to the side steps in a staggering fashion. I used some dimensional foam squares to pop up some of the trees to add some extra dimension.

Cut a sentiment out of cardstock using your die cutting machine and your favorite font or use a die. I used "Merry Christmas" die from Lawn Fawn. Like I said above, if you want to use this as a winter card you can use "Let It Snow" from Lawn Fawn or any other sentiment you would like. You could even stamp one! This would make a great birthday card also by using "Happy Birthday" by Lawn Fawn. I love Lawn Fawns dies! (as if you couldn't tell....)

You could be done at this point or go the extra mile, like I did, and add some sequins!



  1. The snow people are adorable - nice coloring! The trees popping up from the back really make a special backdrop.
