Walking in a Winter Wonderland . . .

OMG I don't even want to think about this yet!  LOL

Hello Dies R Us friends!
Darlene with you today and I have a fun wintertime creation.
I know summer is flying by quickly but I'm going to try to stretch it out as long as I can!  But, as we all know, those snowy days will be here before we know it ... hopefully it will wait until December ... Christmas snow is okay!!

This was a fun and easy card to create and I love the end result.
The dies I have used today are:

Memory Box - Dies - Simple Evergreen Frame

Memory Box - Dies - Evergreen Trio
Sue Wilson Designs - Festive Collection -  Winter Wonderland

I began by cutting out my Memory Box Simple Evergreen Frame then thought it would be so easy to simply sponge the background (popped out portion) blue and reinsert the frame ... half the work is DONE!!

Next I die cut 6 of the Evergreen Trio die and stacked them in two rows in front of the larger trees in the frame ... to add depth.    On the middle row, I actually off set the 3rd trio die cut for yet another depth of dimension.

I added the sentiment die words, used Nuvo white crystal drops for 'dotting' the I's and dabs of Diamond Stickles for my snowflakes.  Viola!

I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared today!  And, don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Oops ... nearly forgot to mention!
Don't forget to use both the POSITIVE and the NEGATIVE of your word dies when possible!  It's always fabulous to get a Two for One!!!   Here I've adhered my negative sentiment die cut to a piece of red card stock and simply cut around.  Now it's all ready for another wintertime creation.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and as always . . .
