Measurements: Image panel - 4 1/4" x 3" plus 1/16" border, under panels 1 1/2" x 3 1/4" plus 1/16" border, 1/2" of the snowflakes are showing beyond the black border
-Stamp on the tree line image using a stamp positioner.
- Stamp the tree line image on scrap paper and cut the land away from the sky to use as a mask; both of these pieces will be used.
-Sponge on the sky area starting with yellow at the horizon then added the orange but staying below the yellow. Add the blue sponging darker at the top.
-Switch the mask to cover the sky area and add a little blue to the snow.
-Stamp on the evergreen tree to the left and the deciduous trees to the right, then the deer.
-For the deer image I did not ink up the entire grass portion. I also used a marker to ink up just the top of the grass and add a trail behind the deer, that took about three stampings and the stamp positioner really came in handy for this step.
-Add the sentiment and the image panel is done.
-The snowflakes are two full sized Martha Stewart punches that I tucked under the panel and glued into place. Then I added a Cuttlebug die cut snowflake on the top and a star to top it off. To keep that top flake even on the card I cut a tiny strip of the white cardstock and glued it to the black border before gluing down the snowflake.
-Direct to paper was done on the navy panels using the white ink after stamping the weave image. The blue panel is stamped with linen using the blue ink.

Oh, how gorgeous, Rox!! This is what the sun looked like this morning here, just coming up over the Cascade Mountains. Makes you stop and just stare at the incredible beauty of it all. Love the card and sketch!
