For my card, I had the idea in my head that the two horizontal panels were going to be snowbanks and I built my card around that.
I die-cut a panel of Neenah Solar White cardstock using Blueprints 21 and sponged Tumbled Glass on it - keeping it heavier on the bottom and fading away at the top. I then spritzed the panel with a Perfect Pearls and water mix which gives it a gorgeous shimmer in real life. I then took a pierced rectangle die and cut the middle out of the panel, before arranging the snowbank die cuts on both the main panel and the cut-out piece. The birch trees were stamped, die-cut and very lightly colored with Copics. The fox was stamped, Copic colored and cut and then it was time to put it all together.
Because the birch trees overlapped the cut-out center, I didn't have to mat the center panel and just moved it over a fraction of an inch to the right to cover the hole, after popping it up on foam tape. A bit of shading under the fox and the card was finished.
Thanks for visiting. As I said earlier, the rest of the design team have used this sketch in wonderful and versatile ways, so be sure to check them out.
