TLC352 - Let's Make Some Snow!!

Hello everyone!! It's my turn to host the TLC challenge on Splitcoast...since Holly and I are continuing our focus on the holidays until December 19th, how about setting the scene for some holiday fun!! Let's make a little can:
1. Use Flower Soft
2. Rub two pieces of styrofoam together to create home made snow
3. Tear and crimp white cardstock
4. Tear white cardstock and add Stickles to the torn part
5. Use patterned paper
6. Use a snow stamp
7. Use a winter snow scene stamp
8. Use snowflakes
9. Use Stickles or glitter to create falling snow
10. Make a card, gift box, ornament, gift set...what ever your little heart desires!!!

My card features the cute Rubbernecker G.Q. Polar Bear . He was colored with Copics, cutout and popped up in the snow which was made with torn white cardstock and the edges were covered with Stickles. The background was created first by sponging the clouds using Pool Party and a homemade cloud template. Then the three tree stamps from Stamp Oasis' Evergreen Set from Rubbernecker  were stamped using Handsome Hunter, Always Artichoke, and Old Olive. The sign and cardinal  from RN's Christmas Outdoor Set were also colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. The edges of the background layers were distressed for the finishing touch.

This was also for the 2 sisters Challenge to add sparkle, Crimbo Crackers Challenge to make it sparkle, and the Moving Along With the Times Challenge to let it snow.

Thanks for visiting and be sure to join us for the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast...I would love to see your snow creations!!!
