Northwoods Sled

Hi everyone and HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! So what kind of pie will you all be having today? It's a toss up for me between pumpkin and pecan pie...hmmm, maybe a slice of each, LOL! Yeah, I know...slow down, girl!

Today I got to play with some Northwoods Wreath, Birds, and Sled images that my sweet friend Tosh stamped for me. Thanks, Tosh!! You're the best!

If you want the stamp, hurry over to Stamper's Dream because all holiday stamps are on SALE through this Sunday, November 30th for 15% off!! Just enter coupon code HOLIDAYS on the checkout page.

The card measures 5.25" square. I used three stamped images on this card. One full image was watercolored for the front, and then I watercolored just the red bow on two more images, cut them out, popped one up on dimensionals over the front image and the second one was glued to the inside of the card (see pic below). The Kraft mat behind the main image is also up on Dimensionals. I used Liquid Pearls on the snow.

The inside of the card basically follows the same layout as the front. I used one of the sentiments from my JustRite Christmas Stamp Ensemble with the Harmony Rectangular Stamper, stamped in Riding Hood Red. Don't forget, this week at Stamper's Dream, selected JustRite products are on sale for 50% off!
