Lets Go Sledding

This card wasn't as hard to create as I originally thought it would be. The trees were stamped on a piece of whisper white card stock (3" x 4") using black ink and then stamped on a piece of printer paper to create a mask to cover the bottom half of the window. A 1" circle was punched out of the sticky section of a post it note to create a mask for the moon. Using not quite navy and night of navy ink the top portion of the window was brayered over the stamped tree images and the masked moon. The children were stamped to the bottom section of the panel in going gray ink and then stamped in sahara sand ink onto the smooth side of a stamp-a-ma-jig panel and applied to the panel to create a shadow. The moon was sponged with so saffron, crushed curry and more mustard ink. The falling snow was added using a white gel pen. The stamped panel was then cut into 1 1/2" x 2" sections and adhered to soft suede card stock (3 3/8" x 4 3/8") to create the window. This panel was added to another piece of whisper white card stock (3 5/8" x 4 5/8"). The window sill section is a piece of soft suede card stock (5/8" x 3 5/8") that was embossed using distressed stripes embossing folder. The sentiment was stamped on whisper white card stock (3/8" x 2 7/8") with not quite navy ink and attached to the window sill section. A piece of not quite navy DSP (4" x 5 1/4") was attached to whisper white card stock (4 1/8" x 5 3/8") and then adhered to a not quite navy card stock card base (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). The stamped window panel was adhered to the card base and stickles were added to highlight the snow to complete the card.
