DL.ART Thankful Thursday #194 - Any Winter Holiday

Happy Thursday, everyone!! It's time for a new Thankful Thursday challenge at DL.ART!! The theme with week is Any Winter Holiday. If you used the code l01210, Diana will give you 10% off your purchase at DL.ART.


For my cards, I used papers from Lemoncrafts Christmas Greetings stack.


Texture paste was applied through a stencil for the background.


The mountains are an Elizabeth Crafts Skis die. They were embossed and then given a dusting of snow (DecoArt Snow Writer and Sparkle N Sprinkle Crystal Ice glitter).


The sleigh is an Xcut Reindeer and Sleigh die. I used the same technique as the sled on yesterday's card...DecoArt Crackle Texture Paste and then when it dried, it was covered with DecoArt Antiquing Cream and then wiped off, leaving it in the cracks.


A Joy Crafts Banner die was cut with textured vellum. Merry Christmas was embossed with Sparkle N Sprinkle White Detail Embossing Powder.


The poinsettias are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Tucked underneath are Impression Obsession Pine Sprigs and Impression Obsession Pine Branch dies. This gorgeous crinkle ribbon is Christmas Green from the Traditional Christmas Bundle.


It's a little hard to see in the pictures, but a Precious Marieke Snowflake Border die is along the bottom of the woodgrain paper. Dec 25 is a My Creative Time die, covered in Sparkle N Sprinkle Crystal Ice glitter. This beautiful ribbon is Christmas Red from the Traditional Christmas Bundle.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
2) Sparkle N Sprinkle December Challenge - Anything Goes


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Any Winter Holiday project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)
