Challenge #318-Let It Snow

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #318-Snow
Make a project using anything snow related. But there has to be a least one cut from the Cricut Library!

This Weeks Sponsor is-

And the prize is-

A $25 online gift code!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

Here is my project-

I had fun making this! I saw the video, and I decided to make one like the one in the video, but with a couple of different twists. What I did different was to use die cut snow at the bottom of the scene panel, and to color the background with a Copic marker of light blue to defuse all that white. And of course, use the Cricut to cut the scalloped card base and circle!

Here are the materials I used-
  1. Cricut: card base (CTMH Art Philosophy, cut at 5 1/2"), circle (Cricut Design Space shape-4 3/4").
  2. Stamps: trees, bow, sentiment, snow (Lawn Fawn Let it Snow set). Inks used: sage, bamboo green (Versacolor), peeled paint, candied apple (Distress Oxide Inks, Ranger). Sky was colored in with B0000 Copic marker. Versamark ink, white embossing powder for snowflakes.
  3. Die: stitched scene builders (Frantic Stamper).
  4. Paper: white cardstock (Neenah Solar White), patterned kraft (My Minds Eye).
Be sure to enter for a chance at that great gift certificate!


  1. Those trees are adorable! Adding blue to the background is perfect.

  2. Very pretty card! I like how you added the blue- perfect touch. I am just learning how to use Copic markers and I appreciate seeing experts like you!

    1. Believe me, I'm no Copic expert! I always feel it's best to experiment-anything I screw up can always be restarted. I did the blue background before I stamped the snowflakes, because Copics don't always like embossing powder.

  3. This is lovely Michelle! Those trees are awesome, and the background looks amazing!
