Timeless Tuesday ~ Winter Wonder!

 Yippee!  It's Tuesday... my favourite day of the week!  It's time for the Flourishes "Timeless Tuesday" Challenge.

This week our fabulous challenge is brought to you by the talented Cindy Haffner!  This week Cindy is challenging us to create a card or project inspired by winter (FTTC191)!  Yup... you know that season with all the white stuff... that's the one!  Think sledding, hot chocolate, skating... whatever your little heart desires!

So here is my winter inspired card this week... 

Night Time Sledding Fun

 I began my card by creating a night time winter scene.  First I stamped my evergreen from the "Forest of Trees" stamp set in navy ink into Flourishes Classic White Cardstock.  Then instead of cleaning off my stamp, I laid down a jagged edged Post-It Note across the image and stamped my tree again.  This caused a more subtle, lighter coloured tree, creating perspective and dimension.  I stamped a few more trees along this masked edge.

Then I took a circle and masked off a "moon" in the sky.  I used some Ranger "Milled Lavender" and "Faded Jeans" Distress Inks to create the night sky.  A few dots and stars using a Inkssentials White Opaque Pen for stars and snow.

The red ribbon, silver cording and the beautiful silver snowflake charm are all from the Flourishes 123 Create Kit "Rejoice" released in September.  There are still a few of this gorgeous kit left!  Make sure you check it out here!

 To decorate the inside, I stamped a row of the "Sweater pattern" from the newly released Flourishes "Snow Day" stamp set.  I also added the greeting "Snowy Greetings" as from the "Snow Day" stamp set.

Here are few close ups of the front of the card.  I added some fun red KaiserCraft Rhinestones.  I added some fine glitter to the edges of all the snow drifts for that touch of winter sparkle!

And my final stamped image of the sled leaning against the stool with the mug of steaming hot chocolate and warm winter boots is also form the new release, "Snowy Day".  For this image I used a variety of Flourishes Copic Collections:
I also added some Glossy Accents to the sled and mug to make them pop off the card front!

Take a peek at what my fellow Timeless Tuesday designers have created for today…
