Warmest Greetings

Peace on Earth Challenge #18

Just recently, I’ve been concentrating on making some items for a fairy garden I am building in the wooded portion of our garden. In between waiting for the glue to dry or just for a change of pace, I played a little with one or two card ideas. I had some black and white PP sitting around and I wondered what it would look like if I die cut different patterns with the frame set I have from Recollections. I adhered each frame as you see it, to a white card front and it waited on my desk for further embellishment. I really liked how each pattern and the die cut made for an interesting look but wasn’t sure how I would finish the card. Then I saw the challenge mood board for a Christmas card and how it was all in black and white with a pop of green here and there and a lightbulb went off in my head. So here is the finished result. The snowman is from a GKD set that was a limited edition sold through SSS and the sentiment is from a Divinity Designs set. He was coloured with Prisma pencils, using Gamsol, and I added a bit of sparkle as well as 2 heart fallouts to his scarf. Pearls from my stash and you would think I had ESP or something because who would know that a challenge would come up with black and white as a theme. I’m beyond thrilled that I had something almost ready for this challenge just by chance. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

  1. The pattern paper is really cool die cut. And how fun that it just worked for a challenge card. The snowman is really cute. I’d love to see pictures of your fairy garden when it’s done.

    1. This card started as one of those, ‘what if’ thoughts and it evolved from there. Glad you like it and when my fairy garden is complete I will share it. I have a smaller version almost done but am planning a bigger one as well. Hubby has been very obliging about drilling holes and cutting up some wood to make a few wood cookies.

    1. Thanks and I will definitely share both the small (almost done) and the larger one (only a concept at the moment) when done.

  2. Awesome background from your combination of ptterned papers and dies, Johanna. The little snowman as the right amount of color to draw your eye to him from the background.

  3. Isn’t it great when an I wonder moment turns into something useful? This worked way better than expected and I’m glad you like it.
