sparkling snow

Hi, my friends. No, I'm not ready for snow yet, but I put some on my card. One of the Hope challenges on SCS this weekend was to use felt. It has been quite some time since I've used felt on a card. I decided to make a snowy scene.

I stamped a line of trees (Lovely As a Tree - SU) and the greeting (Snow Swirled - SU) in black stazon. Then I used a rotary cutter to cut a piece of white felt (after steaming out the wrinkles - lol) the width of the card and then I cut the curve freehand.

The tree is very easy, made with pattern paper squares. Because of the thickness of the felt, I added dimensional tape behind the top half of the tree.

The bunny (Forest Friends - SU) was stamped in basic gray and cut out. After gluing everything, I added some dazzling diamonds glitter on the snow and in the trees. You should be able to see the sparkle better if you click on the photo to enlarge it.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a week filled with wonder.

Very cool card, Melody! I love it. The tree is very easy, how so? Can you share with me as I am paper folding challenged. :) Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us.
