Snowy scene

Happy Friday everyone!  Time for another weekly challenge at Pause, Dream, Enjoy Challenges.  This week, we're answering the question:

Question: Is it SNOWING where you are? 


I prefer it to not be snowing.  Let's never speak of it again.  ;)

This card is a bigger card than I normally make.  I wanted to be able to include my whole scene, so I pulled out my biggest envelope, measured it, and worked backwards.  It wound up being 5.5 inches tall by 8 inches across.  I wrapped some snowflake ribbon that I had left over after making a dog treat holder for Sophie a few winters ago for the top.  I got it at Hobby Lobby, but I don't know if they still sell it.

My entire scene is cut from Jolly Holidays.  The house is layered on foam dots, the rest of them are adhered directly to the card.  The house is cut at 5 inches, the tree at 4 inches, the birdhouse and mailbox at 3 inches. It's a simple card in terms of not a lot of background, but with so much detail in the cuts I think the simplicity works.

Time to come on over to Pause, Dream, Enjoy Challenges and make a snowy card yourself!  There's plenty of inspiration to be had by the rest of the design team over at the blog.

I'll also be entering this card in the following challenge:
