Create Along With PTI - December 2017


Create Along With Us challenge at Papertrey Ink allows us to select a card one of the amazing Design Team Members has created during the December Release that inspired you.  We can then create our own version of their project...pretty awesome, eh!
It's a fabulous opportunity to CASE something made by one of these talented ladies and post it! 😊

There are so many lovely creations, it's hard to choose.   But  Laurie has inspired me with her lovely hearts and flowers set of cards which I chose to CASE.

I did get to the post office today to mail a few packages up North.
Well, at least I didn't wait til the 19th, which is the busiest day of the Season for mailing.

My Card ~
Stamps:  Jaunty Reindeer and Forest Ridge are old wood block stamps that I bought at Hobby Lobby years before clear cling stamps came out! 😁  I still love the 'oldies but goodies' and pull them out to use for my Christmas cards along with the 1000 or so stamps I've bought since. 

Sentiment:  peace is a die cut from sizzix 'Seasons Greetings'

Cardstock:  Cream watercolor paper was used for my stamping and painting; Black panel frames the scene; Lavender is my base card

I used watercolor paints for the night sky, masking out the moon. stamped the trees several times with green  and brown inks above a ridge of snow which has Wink of Stella glistening all over it. The trees are speckled with 'Crystal' Stickles (both are difficult to see in my photo~but look really pretty IRL).

I have an amazing friend who starts baking Christmas cookies in October!  She must make 50-60 different kinds and puts together trays/tins/boxes of these yummy treats for family and friends.  
I love getting this Special gift from her and always make a thank you card I know she will get a kick out of 😋
