Finally, The Last TV Sample!!!

Good morning. It's challenge time over at Polka Doodles and this week we want to see your celebration cards. I've picked Christmas as my celebration. The main reason for this is that the time bandit has been back in town stealing hours, so I simply ran out of time to create anything and as I'd not shown you my final TV sample I thought I'd cheat a little! :D

Sooooo this is it! My final TV sample using the Here Comes Christmas CD. This time it's a stepper card with multiple images.

I created a simple stepper base from card and then ripped strips of card to create the snow drifts. These were layered up using pop dots. The log cabin is simply paper coloured with Promarkers to give a wood grain effect, which has been torn into strips and then edged with Distress Ink

I've taken the images from the CD and coloured them with Promarkers before cutting out and inserting into the scene. To finish I've chucked on loads of Stickles, Glamour Dust and Glossy Accents.

The bauble garland has been cut from one of the papers from the CD - ever start a job then wish you hadn't?? Well that was one of them! If I ever do a remake of this, it will be a cheats garland!!

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a fab weekend.
