Winter Scene DT Post for Outlawz Twisted Thursday

This week over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge, our twist is "winter." Our wonderful sponsor for the month of December is the popular Sherri Baldy with her "Besties" digital stamps. I chose this darling "Bestie" with a reindeer on a toboggan because it fit the twist this week so perfectly! I live in Michigan, so I am very familiar with winter activities!

The base card is a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store. There are three parts to it: the center piece with a notch cut into it, a piece for the left side with a notch cut into it and a tab at the end, and the fence for the right side with a tab at the end. The 2 side pieces have score lines where they are to be folded and adhered to the back of the middle piece. Then the left side's tab fits into the middle piece's notch, and the right side's tab fits into the left side's notch. It sounds more complicated than it is!

After making the card base with 3 different papers (blue snowflake background for the middle piece, glittery white for the left side and woodgrain for the right side), I also made a few snow hills with Pink and Main's scalloped wave dies. Then I die cut some trees with dies from Taylored Expressions. I added some bead and glitter glue to them and sprinkled them with a hefty dose of white glitter to make them look snow-covered.

Here's a look at the card when it's closed up and the tabs are inserted in the matching notches.

Here's a look at the card when it's open:

This is a close-up of the center section. You can see the tab just to the right of the middle tree.
