Season's Greetings

My inspiration for today's card comes from  the view out my craft room window. We are in the midst of  snow flurries here. The wind is howling and the snow is flying. Although there isn't anyone carrying a tree home, the weather seems perfect for it. The focal point for this card was created from felt. Using felt is the current challenge over at 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown. So, I began by hand cutting the person and tree from pieces of felt. I adhered the pieces together with hot glue and added highlights and detail with markers. For the snow I used layers of torn white cardstock and matted this onto a piece of blue  "snow" patterned paper.  Inside the card, I simply wrote Season's Greetings!

Cardbase: Paper Studios
