The Great Outdoors

This week we had several inches of snow fall here. Although I am not ready to face winter yet, I do have to admit it was beautiful. That freshly fallen snow and the current  Great Outdoors challenge at Jingle Belles had me in my craft studio, trying to create a peaceful, snowy scene.

For this card, I began by layering torn white cardstock onto a dark blue cardstock base.  I added glittery stars with Ranger's Star Dust Stickles and adhered a white circle to represent the moon. I used brown ink to add a bit of dimension and texture to the die cut deer before adhering them to the snowfield.  The final touch was the computer generated sentiment.


  1. Wowwww!!! This is simply gorgeous!!! I love how you've created such a stunning scene with the snow contrasting against the dark blue sky. The deer are so majestic standing in the moonlight!
    I just LOVE what you've created!
    So happy you were able to join us at Jingle Belles for the "Great Outdoors!"
