I have had the very cool Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Pop-Up die on my desk for a while but haven't gotten around to using it. Which is a shame as I absolutely adore the cards I have seen with this die. I thought it would be perfect for a wintery snowy scene inspired by the Let It Snow theme over at Lawnscaping challenges. I'm also linking up with Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge where the theme is Christmas Gifts, Time Out where the theme is Christmas (I didn't take the optional twist of glitter/shimmer this time) and Winter Wonderland where the theme is Frame It/Night Scene.
I started by stamping all the cute little critters, colouring and die cutting them. Then I created the snowy backdrop and hillside scene, and placed the little critters out in the snow having fun. It all looks quite intricate but it was actually really simple to do. The pop-up hills just make it look really cool without much effort at all. Last, I added a sentiment using the Scripty Merry die and a sentiment from Joy to the Woods. I also created a cute little penguin image for the front of the card using Perfectly Plaid Christmas paper for the background.
