Walking in a winter wonderland...

This weeks Sweet Stampin challenge is titled 'Winter Wonderland'
we want you to make either a winter birthday card or a christmas card, as you can see I chose the latter...

I got out my acetate again and cut it 26cm x 13cm, then scored in half to make the card base.
Next I added a piece of SU 'bashful blue' spotty paper to the inside back, with a strip of white cardstock at the bottom.
Then I scalloped punched 2 more pieces of white cardstock and added those to either side of the front of the card, stamped my greeting (SU 'Best Yet' stamp set), then punched out 7 snowflakes, trimming 4 of them to make the smaller flakes, then gluing those to the front of the card too.
I originally stamped out the tree (SU 'fun & fast notes' stamp set) and coloured it in, but decided I liked the card better without it...
...THEN I realised that one of the rules of Sweet Stampin is to include a stamped image somewhere on your project, so I added the tree image to the inside back of the card to finish.

This month our sponsor is WinkWinkInk, and our winner will get to choose 3 images from shop :)
