Stepped Up Snow Angels Card by Karen

Happy Wednesday everyone, it’s Karen here today.  I’ve got a step card to share with you that features the Snow Angel stamp set.  How much fun is it that these guys are making snow angels! 

Now, at the end of this post, I’ve also got another Reindeer and a Tree card that I have just made a video for and had posted on Instagram.  I told Gerda I would use a different stamp set this week, but honestly, I just couldn’t stop playing with those reindeer! So I’m sneaking it in here to share with you, so don’t tell Gerda! *wink, wink*

So here’s my Snow Angel card...

I wanted my card to look like the characters were out on some snowy hillsides on a frosty day, so I chose to make a step card.  If you’ve never made one before, they are very easy to do and I’ve got a video made for you to see how I did it.  To watch the video, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

I embossed my snowbanks with an embossing folder from Kaisercraft called Circles.  The background sky was made with a stencil from a company called A Colorful Life and is called Cloud Edger, and I used Distress Oxide ink in Speckled Egg, Tattered Rose and Spun Sugar.  I used the Woodland Borders die set from Sunny Studios to create my snowbanks and for the trees.  I added some Nuvo glimmer paste in Moonshine to the trees, and some glitter accents in Fresh Snowfall around the characters arms and legs.  I mounted Santa, Rudolph and the snowman on action wobblers so they can get busy making their snow angels! 

Since this card tends to flop open, I decided to add a belly band around it with a sentiment on it.  

And now here is the Reindeer and a Tree card I’m quietly sneaking in!  Santa is having a little trouble on the rooftop with his reindeer (or maybe a lot!).  I’m not sure all the presents will be delivered this year, especially since Rudolph has chosen to avoid the mayhem and stay on the ground along with Santa’s sack! 

And if you want to see how I made this card, I have a video for you.  PLEASE CLICK HERE to see the video. 

I hope these cards have given you a little inspiration.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
