Winter Thanks

Hi and welcome to another fabulous sketch from SugarPea Designs!  This week's sketch will run for two weeks and features the very popular tag.  Check it out:

For my card, I went with a winter thanks theme.

I stamped and colored the trees and the igloo from Have an Ice Day using Copics.  I then used my Snow Marker pen to create some snow on the trees.  I know the snow should be on the outer edges of the branches, but I thought this looked better :)  I fussy-cut the trees and then created the "scene" on both the Gift Tag and the die-cut Zig-Zag Stitched Rectangle panel.  I cut some snow-drifts and sponged them lightly with Tumbled Glass ink.  I then sponged Tumbled Glass ink on the rectangle panel fading away as I got higher up the panel.  Two snow drifts went onto the tag and the other onto the panel mimicking the sketch.

The trees were then adhered to the tag and the igloo to the panel.  The beautiful, scripty "thanks" was die-cut and stacked three high and painted with Wink of Stella.  Some matching twine for the tag and my card was done.

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the amazing cards created by the rest of the design team
