I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas

Posted on

I'm Dreaming Of A White ChristmasThe twentieth card in my 25 Holiday Cards Challenge started as one of the simple snowman staring up at the sky cards—but then it got really complicated. I wondered what else someone looking down at that snowman might see, so I created an overhead view of trees and a little girl with a sled plus some snowflakes beginning to fall. In some ways it was a complicated card, but the components are fairly simple.

Here are the details on how I made it in My Digital Studio:

  • Background: Candy Cane Lane—Pattern 1, Opacity at 40%
  • Trees: Stacked and rotated Star Punches and Flower Punches, in a variety of sizes, in Garden Green and Wild Wasabi
  • Snowman:
    • Body: Stacked Circle Punches in Whisper White
    • Hat: Square Punches in Basic Black with a band in Bashful Blue, and Holly from the Jolly Bingo Bits
    • Scarf: Frostwood Lodge—Pattern 9
    • Buttons & Eyes: Brads in Basic Black
    • Nose: Petite Pennant Punch in Only Orange
    • Arms: All in the Family—left arm
  • Little Girl:
    • Shoes: Oval Punch in Basic Black
    • Pants: Circle Punch in Night of Navy
    • Coat: Circle Punch in Baja Breeze with Word Window Punch for sleeves
    • Face: Oval Punch of Blush Blossom with All in the Family—head 10
    • Hands: Oval Punches of Blush Blossom
    • Hat: Oval Punch in Real Red (masked with rectangle of Blush Blossom at the bottom), and Word Window and Circle Punch in Whisper White for the trim
  • Sled:
    • Tag Punch in Frostwood Lodge—Pattern 3
    • Long, thin rectangle punches in Sahara Sand to create the look of slats.
    • Baker’s Twine – White knot to simulate the rope to pull the sled
  • Snowflakes: Various embellishments from the Christmas Cheer – snowflake set
  • Sentiment: “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas” typed in Arial, 32 pt.
