Today’s card was inspired by the November Paper Pumpkin kit I received from Stampin’ Up!®. As soon as I saw the laser cut elements, I was reminded of the Sleigh Ride Edgelits I purchased from the holiday catalog last year. I never really used them because I purchased them just before the end of the year after I had already made my holiday cards. Even though they’re now retired, I pulled them out of my stash and decided to put them to use on some of my cards this year.
I started this card by creating a watercolor wash background using Night of Navy and Rich Razzleberry inks. After it was dry, I trimmed it down then die cut the background to simulate falling snow. I adhered a layer of white cardstock behind the watercolor panel using a Quickie glue pen then matted it with some Night of Navy cardstock.
Next, I die cut the little row of houses using of the dies in the Sleigh Ride Edgelits set from some white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment using Night of Navy ink then adhered it to the watercolor panel using some foam tape to give it a bit of dimension. I finished the card by mounting the matted watercolor panel to a heavyweight white card base.
