Winter Wonderland

Hey Everyone! 

It's been a while since I've been able to sit down and think about making a card, so I was happy I had a few spare minutes to do that today :)  It's my last semester in graduate school, so it'll be a busy last push, but it'll all be worth it.... to make make more money to spend on stamps ;)  Hah! 

Anyways, today I wanted to join in the newest Lawnscaping Challenge: Winter Wonderland. 

I thought it would be fun to make a wintery scene for this card: 

I started by inking the background with a few distress inks to create a light to dark color gradient.  Next, I spritzed the background with perfect pearls spray to give the card a sparkly, snowy feel.  I then cut some snowy hills out of white paper and used my paper crimper to give the card some texture.  The critters are from Lawn Fawn (winter bunny, making frosty friends), which I colored with copics and cut out.  The sentiment is also from Lawn Fawn (let it snow).  After adhering all the pieces, I added a few finishing touches (stickles to the scarves,  liquid appliqué to the base of the tree and sentiment to look like snow, and a button with some gray lawn trimmings). 

Here are a few close ups: 

And one more to get a feel of how sparkly it is: 

The card ends up measuring 9x3, so winter bunny could have a nice, long sled ride :) 

I'm also going to link this up to this weeks CAS-ual Friday's Challenge: long and short.  The objective is to create a card that has one long side and one short side.  

Thanks for visiting today!
