This is for today's Sketch Challenge #98, and also for the Ways to Use It Challenge, #86, Liquid Applique. The inside of the card is shown in the next photo. The sleigh is silver embossed, colored in with red marker, than covered with Crystal Effects and sprinkled with fine glitter. The presents are colored with markers and the whole thing is cut out with an exacto knife and popped up on foam tape. The trees are stamped and enhanced with markers. I tried to make the snow using Stamp 'n Flock, but could not get it to stick well, so I used Liquid Applique on top of it. Of course the falling snow inside and out is LA, inspired by all of Kittie 747's beautiful snow covered cards. Thank you Kittie! The reindeer sports a rein of copper cord. Thanks for looking!

Maddy, This is another gorgeous work of art. I love the popped sleigh and especially that you embossed with silver EP. I love all the snow and I especially love how you staggered the trees in the background. I looks laike a little enchanted forest. Carrying the theme over to the inside is so clever and I love that you have penquin sneaking out at the top. I have this set and have only used it once but you have inspired me to pull it out. I hae to put this in my fav's to case.

This is jst an amazing card. My head hurts at the thought of all the work and planning that went into making it. I think if I was ever able to make a card like this I'd lock it up in a safe or put it in a glass display or something. It's a masterpiece!
