In the Meadow...

Today is day 4 of the Papertrey Ink October Countdown and also the first design team group post day. Today the design team will be sharing with you... In the Meadow. This gorgeous set is full of traditional and timeless images, there also happens to be an assortment of coordinating dies that I'm sure your going to love.

Here's what I've come up with...A little wintry scene that's got me longing for some snow.Today's card started with a card base of Rustic White cardstock. I stamped the card base with this fabulous tree in Simply Chartreuse and a sentiment in Dark Chocolate. Die cut and trimmed to fit two Rustic Cream snowdrifts. Die cut another snowdrift from Aqua Mist, picked a good placement into the corner of the card front, traced the corner with a pencil and trimmed.I then embellished the snow drift tops with a touch of glitter. Just traced the edge with a glue pen and dipped the wet glue into a pile of crystal glitter. Once dry I attached them to the card base at different heights.Using the glue pen again, I topped the branches of the tree with more crystal glitter. Then finished the card off with a couple die cut deer. I love how the Aqua Mist edge gives this card the look of a frosty riverbed, perfect for a deer to take a sip of.

Well, that's it from me today. Be sure to see what the rest of the Papertrey Ink design team has in store for you today. I know I can't wait to see!...

Thanks for stopping by!
