A donation for an upcoming fundraiser auction for cross country skiers. Nordic skiers don't get a lot of targeted merchandise, so I thought I'd do a Christmas card set. I designed this cut file to fit two cards on 11'x15' paper I found at Joann, so the finished card is 7"x5". I made the "Let It Snow" sentiment by die cutting letters from a cereal box with Sizzix Wingo Zingo alphabet die and then gluing them on on another piece of box and running it though my Big Shot with the Nestabilities Embossing pads. It is hard to photograph but the embossing shows up pretty well. I might double up the letters to get a deeper impression.
I'm pretty proud, because it took a long time to deign the card in Make the Cut software - I learned a ton and have tweaked since to center the skier, but this is my prototype. fThank for looking

I have to mark this as a favorite. A daunting task with a superb outcome. Your inspired design is so imaginative and beautifully executed. I can see this created in other colors, as well. Congratulations on such a fine accomplishment.
