Carolina Girl (Cely)
I'm still liking the warm weather because that's the kinda gal I am, but I wanted to try my first challenge at Joan's Garden . It required: a winter theme, a stamp, a die and a tree.  Hummmm...think I have those.

I merged two files (to make my scene) from Doodle Pantry...Winter Wishes and Snow Birdie. I used the Poppystamps window die, Memory Box "Twigs and Berries" die, Silhouette Store bird and bow cut files.

I made the garland in Silhouette.  If you have a Silhouette machine, I will be happy to send you the file.  I haven't made into svg format yet. Find my email under "Have a question for me?"

A2, stitching, glitter and lots of pop-ups for dimension

Side view to help show some of the depth

    Such a beautiful card , I love the little scene behind the window and that lovely garland too.Thanks for the comments, I made the canopy cards by just cutting a nesty label then sticking it to the back part of the card, I left the front part free so it stands up over the card.

    This is absolutely gorgeous. I am definitely going to be casing!

    BTW, I emailed you a copy of the Faux Postage Template, in case you want to use it. You should be able to resize it, etc. If you have any question, give me a holler.

    Cely, they will love your card at Joan's! It is fantastic, love the merging of the two stamps and love that garland and window. I am so wanting the Silhouette and just need to pull the trigger,lol. You and another friend of mine are making it difficult not to order it, just hope I can figure it out.

    I love this card. I have visited your site before but don't comment often. I have a Cricut and the SCAL program and I enjoy the cut files even though I don't use it very often. If you get the garland converted over for SCAL I'm sure a lot of people would be interested in it! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous card.
