Let it Snow for 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

Hello friends!  Happy November!  The weather has come in full force with the several inches of snow that came over our area on Halloween!  I blinked and Fall was over!   I don’t ever remember it snowing this early before, but I guess it’s very fitting for my card today then! LOL!

Since today is the first of the month, we begin a new challenge over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies and the theme is always “Anything Goes + use a CRITTER” and it can be any type of crafty project you like to make!  Hope you will join us this month and share your lovely critter creations!

We are sponsored this month by The Paper Shelter and here’s the card I made:


We were provided an image set to share for the team, and this beautiful set is called “Holy Night” and it comes with both the regular digital image, plus a colored version as well as some beautiful background scenes to go with it.

For my card, I printed out the “non-colored” image and used my Copic markers to color it and then used some oval dies to cut it out.  I also stamped a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps at the bottom of the oval.

I printed out the background scene paper and sponged around the edges with some blue ink that I’ve also sponged around the oval edges as well.  I added some silver metallic ribbon around the background layers and slipped the brown oval layer behind the ribbon.  I die cut some MFT snowflakes with silver glitter paper and added them around the card design.  These background layers were then mounted over a top folding white 5″ square card base.

I popped up the oval image panel with craft foam and then added a few rhinestones in the center of the snowflake over the oval and the one in the center of the bow.


She looked a little Vintage to me and with the wintry papers, so I wanted to color her outfit in blue tones and accent with browns. For the “spots” on the deer, I used my blender 0.

I wish you could see it better in the photo, but I’ve used a gel pen for accents around her outfit trimmings including the lines of the inside of her cloak.  I also used the gel pen for the “berries” in the holy around the deer’s neck and her hair piece.

For the snowfall, I took a glue pen to add the “dots” over the image and lined the ground with it and then sprinkled some glitter over the entire oval image.


I hope you’ve enjoyed my wintry card today and were inspired in some way.

Thanks so much for stopping in today and please stay tuned for another post coming up from me today!!

  4. Vicki, this is just so stunning!!! I only wish I could see it IRL to appreciate the effects of the gel pens! Your coloring is beautiful and I envy your ability to color her hair with markers! The color combo of blue, Kraft, and white is gorgeous too. Making notes to CASE this color combo soon!!!
