Heartfelt Creations - Winter Sleigh Ride



Today's card is a sleigh ride stamp set from Heartfelt Creations August Release - 
Snow Kissed Collection.   
I remember living in Colorado and going into the mountains for a delightful sleigh ride to a log cabin.    
It looks like the one in this image.    
Once we arrived, there was a wonderful prime rib dinner and hot spiced cider waiting for us!   
I will never forget the magical time we had.   



HCDP1-269 Snow Kissed Paper Collection
HCPC-2749  Snow Kissed Spruce Cling Stamp Set
HCD2-750  Cut Mat Create 1B
DDots   3-D Foam Dots

120 lb. white card stock, green card stock, Xpress It Blending Card Stock, Copic Alcohol ink Markers,  Stickles, double sided tape, paper trimmer, die and embossing machine, painters tape, Weathered Wood Distress Ink Pad and dauber. 



Create a 5 12 x 4 1/4  inch top fold card base.  Cut a base layer from green card stock measuring 5 1/4 x 4 inches.   Select the scenic mat paper from the Snow Kissed Paper Collection with the boughs and ornaments.  Trim the designer paper to 5 x 3 3/4 inches.  Adhere the layers with double sided tape.  

Stamp the sleigh design on X-Press it or any Copic compatible paper.  The 2.5 x 3.5 inch die from Cut Mat Create 1B was placed over the image and the edges taped to the die.  The image was colored with the following Copic Alcohol Ink Markers - R20, R22, R24, R56,  C5, E40, E42, E44, E46, RV91, RV95, Y11, B000, B00, and B41.   Weathered Wood Distress Ink was lightly sponged over the top  of the die to give a border.  Die cut the image with the Cut Mat Create 1B Die.   Cut a mat out of green card stock to fit the die cut image and pop it up with dimensional foam dots.  

Add some Stickles to give an look of the sunset reflecting on the trees, roof and snowy bank.
