Thinking of You on Christmas - The Paper Players 224

The challenge with The Paper Players this week is a Tic Tac Toe Challenge, which gives one a whole lot of options.  I chose to do the Transport, Embossing and Die Cut.


I started by die cutting an opening centered into a 4 by 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Windows framlets.
Then on a second piece of Whisper White cardstock I laid the die cut piece over it and made small pencil marks to indicate the boundaries of the die cut area.
Using Memento ink and the stamp set "White Winter", the image was stamped inside the parameters, and coloured with blendabilities.  The sky was sponged using daubers, and the snow made using a White gel marker.
A two way glue pen and dazzling diamonds made the snow on the ground.
Lastly I embossed the die cut piece.  Versa Mark ink was applied to the inside top side of the Fancy Fan folder and embossed.  Iridescent embossing powder was applied and heat set.
A piece of Cherry Cobbler seam binding and bow was attached to the left side, and a metal snowflake embellishment attached with Linen thread.
This was then attached to the image panel and both attached to a Cherry Cobbler base.
The sentiment is from White Christmas.
