Snow Adventure card

When I think of my friends back home in Wisconsin this cold winter, I think of the fun that they have when the snow falls.  There is sledding, tobogganing, skiing, skating and snowman building.  After the outside activity, there is hot chocolate inside to warm up.  That is what inspired me to make this card to send off to a friend that maybe enjoying these activities.  As for me, I headed to Florida for the winter.

 I die cut the forstyvilleborder twice.  Put one border on the left of the card and cut pieces of the second one to add to the upper and lower corners.  Then I added glue and glitter.  
 This card sparkles with glitter and snow.  I also included some of the outdoor and indoor activities. 

 After die cutting the sled, I colored it with markers to look like a wooden sled.  I needed to add some snow to it so that it would look like it had been used in the snow hills.  Before that, I used silver embossing powder to the top to look like metal and then added the snow with Viva pearl pen, Ice White and sprinkled glitter over the top.  

Then I simply die cut the cup and used the same Viva white pen to add the whipped cream on the top of the hot chocolate.  A few dashes with my white gell pen to add some interest to the cup,
Here is a look at how it glitters and shines. The sentiment is computer generated.

 Here are the dies that I used for this card.
I hope that I have given you some inspiration today to make a card.
