Ready, Set, Christmas Challenge - Snow Buddies!

 Hello and Welcome! Today's card was made for the MFT Ready, Set, Christmas Challenge. This is a relatively new challenge and it's to help you get ready for the Christmas season by making a Christmas card every month! For this card, I used MFT BB Snow Buddies stamp set and corresponding dies. 

For this card, I started with a slimline sized card using a textured dark blue cardstock. Then I cut a panel (8.375 x 3.375) from smooth white cardstock and created the sky background using Distress Oxide ink in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire. I set that aside to dry. I cut another panel using smooth white cardstock and then created a snowy hill using MFT Stitched Slimline Snow Drifts Die-namics. 

I stamped the images onto Neenah Class Crest smooth white cardstock using Lawn Fawn's Black ink. Then I colored the images in with Copic markers. 

Once my background was dry, I used Copic Opaque White and some water and splattered it on to my card to create falling snow. I've never used this product before and I recently seen someone use it for an MFT card video. It works AMAZING!! I highly recommend this product! I set my background aside to dry. 

Once dry, it was time to put my card together. I stamped my sentiment first using Lawn Fawn's Black Ink and then added my snow hill and fences. From there I added the rest of my images. Once adhered to the background, I added some glitter gel to the hat pom pom's and to the snowballs and snow on the fence. 

I just love how this card turned out and now, in March, I already have a card ready for Christmas! Win win!! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
