Dashing Through the Snow
by Jenny Griffiths

Hello Crafty Friends!

  After some quality time in my craft studio let's see what all the messiness was about...I must ask, "are you a tidy or a messy crafter?"  I'm admitting to being one of the messy ones but love creating, especially with the new goodies from the Winter Collection.

Dashing Front-JGriffiths

This card started with the background...I stamped and embossed (clear) the beautiful Dancing Snowflakes stamp then swirled some inks over the entire surface to bring out the detail of the snowflakes.  The snow drift was created from the Curved Dashing dies--there are both the words and the snow drift in the set! I added the Sketch Tree and Little Deer before positioning the Modern Tile Background elevated with narrow strips of foam adhesive on the reverse side.    

IMG_8747I couldn't decide which size sled to include so it had to be "both"!  Each one was die cut in red, and I cut the larger one in Kraft paper as well so I could piece the colors together.  The smaller red one looked a little too "new" so I scuffed it up with a bit of fine sandpaper.  Lastly, I added the words (carefully) to the tile background then gave some attention to the inside of the card....

It's pretty simple, I repeated the snow drift, trees and the deer and left room to write a holiday sentiment.  Hope you like today's card, I'm getting into the holiday mood early!

Happy Friday!



Beautiful work!

Amazing card! Love all the details, colors and MOOD!

Terrific scene, and yes I am a messy crafter!

Wow! What a stunner! Gorgeous and so mood enhancing. Makes you wanna cuddle up in front of the fireplace with an nice plate of S'mores and a big mug of Hot Chocolate adorned with a peppermint stick. Yummers! Thanks for sharing. Great Work!
