Fun in the Snow

Snowhill4

A card that features sledding over snowy terrain is sure to be a hit as winter approaches. This easy card is fun to make and just as fun to receive. The card is a very basic pattern - and the idea can be changed in many ways. The card opens to reveal layers - each layer is slightly shorter than the next, so that a scene "pops out" when you open the card up. You can have 2 layers, you can have 10 layers - the only rule of thumb is that each layer has to be a little bit shorter than the next.

For this card, we used 2 layers - and it was more than enough! Cut 3 pieces of paper according to the measurements below (you'll need 2 pieces of 8 1/2 x 11 paper to do this project). We used Robins Egg cardstock from Memory Box for the sky, and we stamped a Snow Background stamp on the largest piece first to make a snowy sky.

Once the pieces of paper are cut out, score them in the middle and also 3/8" from each edge.

Next, stamp the Sledding image 233D on the shortest piece. Cut a curvy line across the piece and around the stamped image. Cut a curvy line (these will be hills) across the medium piece as well. Finally, apply adhesive along the edges of the short and medium piece and stack the pieces together, so that the layers pop out!

Color in the little sledders with copic markers - and add some Polar White Flower soft under the sled and across the hill. It really looks like snow flying up under the sled!
