Lawnscaping Challenge #97 - Winter Themed

Hi crafty friends! I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays! I'm finally back at work (boo), but to ease the Monday blues, I bring you a card for the latest Lawnscaping Challenge (yay!). This Lawnscaping Challenge is inspired by winter-themed images from Pinterest. There is so much inspiration packed in these images and I cannot wait to see what you create!

For my card, I used the "Joy to the Woods" stamp set to create a cute winter-themed thank you card inspired by the Pinterest images. I used the A2 Stitched Rectangle die from the "Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables" to cut my front panel from some light grey cardstock. I stamped the panel with the woodgrain background stamp from the "Woodgrain Backdrops" stamp set in SSS Fog dye ink and then distressed the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink. I then used one of the stitched square dies from the SSS "Stitched Squares" set to die cut a window out of my card panel.

I used the snowy bokeh-like pattern paper from the "Snow Day" 6x6 paper pack for my scene's backdrop. I then used the stitched hillside border dies to create the snow drifts. I colored the images using Copic Markers and then die cut them out using the coordinating dies. To finish the card, I die cut the "Scripty Thanks" die out of white cardstock three times and adhered the sentiment onto the woodgrain panel.
