Walking In A Winter Wonderland


I've got another Christmas card to show you.  This is a front-panel side-step card (template can be found HERE).

I used gesso to add the snow of the trees and also on the pine branch and the pinecones.  (Tutorial on how to make the paper pinecones HERE.)

Don't know if you can tell, but lots of glitter used here, on the trees and snowflakes--and all over my craft room...hee hee.

Here's a close-up of this oh-so-cute image I'm featuring, designed by Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps.

This one is called Winter Friends.  I love Sylvia's images--they're ALL just too adorable.  You can see this and other images in her collection HERE.
