Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and Carbon Copied

Hooray, it's my turn to share a challenge with the fabulous Karen Baker of The Bald Dragonfly! It's so fun to see the Carbon Copied posts go up! Just a warning that I am not nearly as deserving of all that praise she gave of me! She's far too sweet!

We decided to use the Teeny Trees stamp set for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge this week.


I think that this is my first tri-fold card so I kept it simple.

The snow and icicles were done using shimmery white cardstock.

I created the window using dies listed below and some clear cardstock. To give it a frosty look, I covered it with Crackle Accents.

Here is the Christmas tree I created inside:


And a look at the tri-fold:


Be sure to check out Karen's inspired gratitude project here!

I am also submitting this for CAS-ual Fridays "Over the Edge" and the Waltzingmouse Christmas card challenge (in the forum) for September, which requires acetate.

Thanks for visiting!
