Winter Wonderland Challenge!

The theme this week at Winter Wonderland is "Home for the Holidays". So for this challenge I pulled out last years Papertrey stamps..I absolutely love these stamps. Home for the Holidays, and Boards and Beams..they pair up to make this come together for a Christmas card! A little paper piecing and very finicky...but the result is so fun! I actually coloured with Lyras and Copics! I also had a little fun with the liquid applique for the snow. For the liquid applique I did not heat it to puff it, I just let it set on its own..just wanted that fresh snowfall look! I still cannot believe that I am making Wintery cards...I am such a summer person and don't want to wish summer away!

  5. This is so pretty. As you know I like to enter the Winter Wonderland too but not sure what to make this week. Home for the holidays isn't a sentiment we have in England. Have to get my thinking cap on. Marianne x
