Let It Snow {Lavinia World #44}

A new Lavinia World Challenges #44 begins today. The winner will receive a $15 gift code to Lavinia World  and the theme is always use any stamped image (but no digis). 

For today's snowy card, I used the following products:

Lavinia stamps: Fir Tree

I also used Nuvo Crystal Drops (Violet Galaxy, Rhubarb Crumble, Dandelion Yellow) for the ornaments in the tree and my die cut sentiment is by Tonic Studios (Let It Snow).

I had seen quite a few of this general design over the Christmas holidays and I wanted to give it a try too. To start out, I die cut the white cardstock and  blue matting using the Tutti Designs slimline die. 

I then tore a piece of scrap paper to create a few snow drifts using Distress Oxide and a blending brush. I used a light touch for the snow drifts as I didn't want them to overpower the rest of the scene.

Once I was happy with the snow drifts, I stamped the Fir Tree using the Rain Forest ink pad.  After stamping, I added clear embossing powder and heat set it.

Next came time to place the bunnies. I used the backing sheets that come with the stamps to get a general idea where I wanted them. Since I wasn't using a stamp positioner for the bunnies, I reached for the Fairy Hugs Raven ink.  I almost always get a nice clear, dark impression on the first go around when using this ink pad.

I randomly stamped my falling snow using each of the stamps in the set and then added a dot of Pixie Dust glitter to the center of each snowflake. The Nuvo Drops were added next and then I set aside the project to dry while I die cut my sentiment out of two different colors of blue cardstock.  I offset the two layers to give the top layer a bit of a shadow.

Once everything was dry, I adhered the sentiment to the focal panel and then adhered everything to my white card stock base.

How cute, Anne! I still have green and dried grass and dead leaves hanging on my oak trees. Snow would look prettier, just like your card!

You decorated your Christmas tree beautifully! No wonder the bunnies are all sitting around it admiring it. Maybe also waiting for Santa? :-) Love your beautiful card. Stay safe and well. Lena xx
