Over the hills and through the woods...

Hello, back to the card making. This card has a lot of layers, but is still a very simple design. I hope you like it!

I used CTMH papers for this card and inked all the edges. I also pinched some of the edges to give them more of a distressed look. Can't wait to get my Distressing Kit and really go to town! I love the look of aged cards. I used brown ink to stamp both the sentiment and the sledding image. I coloured the girl on the sled with my water colour pencils. The circles were cut using my CM circle cutters which after almost 10 years, I still love.

As you can see from this view, I popped the circles up off the card with dimensionals. I also used some leftover strips of paper, heavily inked, to finish the inside of the card off.

This was the card when I first finished it. A bit of brown ribbon and some gold gems finished it off. I kept looking at it though, thinking that something was missing. The original design was in my CTMH catalogue and it had a silk flower attached to it. So I got out my Cricut and using a flower off of Plantin SchoolBook, I cut a flower for mine out of patterned paper. I curled the edges slightly around a pencil and added a pearl to the center. Now, it looked finished! As you can see at the top of the blog, the flower just gives it that little something something that was missing.
