A Cold, Frosty & Snowy Winter

Rather an apt title for my card today as snow is forecast over the next few days and it's certainly cold and frosty.

I've made a resolution this year to use any new crafty thing I buy at least once before it goes in the cupboard and so I have one new die-cut on this card. I made up this winter scene using Marianne Design products. The image is a Don and Daisy stamp which I coloured with Promarkers and the background paper I used for the sky is from the Scandinavian Christmas collecttion. I used Creatables dies LR0172 village (my new die), LR0136 tree and made a frame by using the leftover part from LR0111. I finished off by adding some Stickles and then some more Stickles !!

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Marianne Design challenge 'Winter'
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' challenge 'Cold and Frosty'
Dies to Die For challenge 'Celebration'
Stempelgarten challenge 'In the Snow'

Thanks for taking the time to drop by and I hope you have a good weekend


  1. Hey Andrea

    What a great New Year resolution - I wonder how many of us put things away before using them and then forget we have them!

    Your card is lovely - you've created a lovely winter scene - gorgeous.

    Thank you for dropping by to see me and leaving me some very much appreciated comments.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    Ta ta for now.

  3. Love those die cut trees and your great card. My mission this year is to work my way through all the digi stamps I have but have never used. I think us crafters are all the same! Jx

  4. A beautiful card Andrea, love those dies!!
    I am just as bad as you in the respect of buying new crafty stash and putting it in a cupboard or drawer unused! I really must use some of the stuff I already have before buying anything new!

    Big hugs

    This card is very beautiful. I love this lovely little winter scene, all white on white. The beautiful background paper fits so well and gives a superb snowy sky.
