PTI Blog Hop & Hubby's Card

Blog-hop-logo
True to form, hubby's card was made Christmas Eve--LOL! I had something else in mind until I saw the theme for the PTI Dec. Blog Hop.  Then I got the idea to use my new SSS Village dies backing the windows with Delicata Golden Glitz sponged on cardstock.  
The buildings were sponged with Distress Ink frayed burlap. I ended up cutting my snowy mounds separate from the buildings--easier for me to get each piece situated where it looked right.  My inked background was done with Distress Ink chipped sapphire. Unfortunately, I didn't plan for how much would end up being covered, so most of my shading doesn't show, but it's a pretty night sky anyway.  Love the SSS Falling Snow stencil which I used with embossing paste colored with a silver re-inker.  Rock Candy glitter adds some sparkle to the falling snow & mounds.  The window was cut with a Spellbinders oval & I trimmed the sentiment strip into a flag after silver embossing the greeting from PTI Snowflake Flurries.  The little wooden star from the SSS Blog Candy I won was colored with a silver maker & covered in Crystal Laquer.  
The top 2 layers are mounted with foam tape & hubby really liked the 3D look.  I'm also entering the Anything Goes challenge at SSS Wednesday & Pixies Snippets Playground.  Enjoy the hop & thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.

  4. Beautiful card Greta! I love your gorgeous scene you created, so so sweet and I am sure your hubby loved it. I wanted to let you know that I looked up your city on the map and you are not too too far away, maybe a 8-10 hour drive. It would be so much fun to meet you in person! Wishing a wonderful rest of your week!
