I created the base structure of my card with navy blue cardstock and mounted a lighter blue shade to the front with the Merry and Bright sentiment from the MFT Hand-lettered Christmas stamp set. I shaded around the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink.
Inside the card I used the MFT Scenic Snow Globe die set and added fine glitter for the snow effect. The backdrop is white cardstock shaded using a blending tool and shaded with Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink. I used the Die-namics Elegant Rectangle for window openings, and cut a frame for each using the next larger die and the one used for the window.
MFT Frosty Ice Cubes, and decided to put a few around the snowman. The "peace on earth" sentiment is also from the MFT Hand-lettered Christmas stamp set.
This card was so much fun to create, and I can't wait to send it to someone for Christmas. Good luck to all who enter the contest!
