Bring on the Snow

Hello, everybody!  Today I'm sharing a winter holiday card!  My goal is to make two holiday cards per month and this is my second one - yay!  If I can make more, I will!  This one is a winter scene with tobogganing kitties!


These adorable kitties are from Newton's Nook - Newton's Toboggan, and I coloured them with markers in an attempt to make them look like our three kitties!  I fussy-cut the image so I could pop it up on foam tape and added Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss - Simply White to the white parts of their hats.

I created the background by inking Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide for the sky.  For the trees, I inked Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide through Newton's Nook - Evergreens Stencil, and then added two snowy hills using Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes border dies.  I stamped the sentiment and snowflakes from Newton's Nook - Newton's Toboggan and then finished the card by adhering a sparkly red stitched scalloped frame (Gina Marie Designs).  I love how cute this card turned out!

Okay now, you're sucking me into looking at your whole blog with your cute little kitty blog posts. I love the stamp with your great coloring. The background trees are gorgeous.
I love that you used a Gina Marie die cut. She is from my area of Michigan. I didn't see a link to the scalloped frame. If you want to link to her products, the website is wholesalecraftingsupplies.com.
