The Paper Funday January 2022 Challenge - Winter Landscapes

Hello Friends!  It's the 1st Wednesday of the month and a new challenge has started at The Paper Funday Challenge Blog.  The theme is Always Anything Goes with an Optional Twist.  The Twist this month is Winter Landcapes.

For my design team project, I went with the optional Twist and used the "Sittin' Tree" 4x6 Stamp Set from Maymay Made It to create a Winter Landscape card.

Using a black card panel, I stamped and heat embossed the images using Fine Detail White Embossing Powder by Ranger.  I used an embossing pen and the same detail powder to create the snow flurries, flakes and ground cover.

The focal panel was layered on silver mirror card and adhered flat to the 110 lb. card base.  The sentiment comes from the Lawn Fawn "Winter Fox" mini stamp set and was die cut, layered with mirror card and popped on craft foam.  

This stamp set is very versatile.  It has leaves and buds for the different seasons.  Leaving the tree bare and adding "snow" made it the perfect Winter Landscape.

Please join us at The Paper Funday this month for your chance to win one of two prizes on offer.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
