Christmas In the Woods for PP466

Hello and Happy Sunday to you!
 It’s time for a new creative challenge over at The Paper Players
This week, I am super-excited to be hosting our monthly Theme Challenge: 
This theme has a lot of fun possibilities. When I selected this theme, the things that came to mind were elements like woodgrain paper, wood texture, trees, cabins, forest critters, plaid and SO much more! I hope you will join us and play along! 

I guess it makes sense that the In the Woods Dies were the first thing that came to mind when I sat down to make my card. Pretty literal interpretation of the challenge, right? Haha! Instead of pairing them up with the coordinating Winter Woods stamp set, I thought it would be fun to showcase the gorgeous Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. One side of the paper features gorgeous photographed scenes and the other side features patterns with silver foil accents. It’s GORGEOUS!! 

Color Combo:
All of the measurements and supplies for this card are listed below. I used the Merry Moose stamp set for sentiments on this card because I wanted something small and simple since the images are so bold on this card. I popped-up the layer of Purple Posy Cardstock (die cut with the largest Stitched Rectangle die) with Stampin’ Dimensionals to create added dimension. 

There are a lot of sparkly details on this card, but life is better with a little sparkle, right? The die cut pieces and sentiment banner are on Shimmery White Cardstock, which adds a subtle sparkle. The Ice Stampin’ Glitter was added using liquid glue to the tips of the tree and along the snow drift. This is more of a “chunky” glitter and really easy to work with. I took a few of the Snowflake Sequins in different shapes and glued them down to accent the snowy scene. I also spritzed the Purple Posy “frame" with a mix of rubbing alcohol and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint. For the finishing touch, I added a triple bow of Silver Metallic Thread to the top of the tree. 

Card Measurements:
  • Purple Posy Card Base - 4-1/4” x 11”, scored at 5-1/2”
  • Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper - 3-7/8” x 5-1/8” 
  • Purple Posy Cardstock (die cut in the middle with the largest Stitched Rectangles Dies) -4” x 5-1/4”
  • Shimmer White Cardstock (stamped with sentiment in Basic Gray ink and punched on one end with Tailored Tag Punch) - 2-1/2” x 3/4” 
  • Scraps of Shimmery White Cardstock to cut out die cut tree and die cut snow drift from In the Woods Dies
  • Whisper White Cardstock (inside card) - 4” x 5-1/4” 
  • Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (inside card) - 1” x 5-1/4” 
Finally, here is a quick peek inside the card. I flipped over the same DSP from the front of the card to use the beautiful foil pattern and popped in a coordinating sentiment from the Merry Moose stamp set. I think the sentiment goes well with that serene image on the front of the card, don’t you? 

I hope you will join us this week over at The Paper Players and share your project with our ”Into the Woods Theme Challenge". We’d love to see what you come up with! You can link up your project through Noon PST on Friday November 8th, 2019.
