There are so so many fabulous Christmas lines out this year, and every year I say to myself, "I don't NEED anymore Christmas". And even though I did buy a few, I justified this Crate Paper "Bundled Up" collection as being more "winter" themed than Christmas (which it most definitely is). I have a lot of snowy photos from last year and these were a few of my favorite of Charlotte using her new sled after Christmas.
I wanted to do something with triangles, and I was thinking about my photos and triangles, I began thinking about the slope of the hill while you are "dashing down", so I cut the triangles at right angles to mimic a slope. There are 3 different sizes and three different papers.
On the background, I began by heat embossing some snowflakes with clean powder and then going over the paper with a light blue water color wash, with a few splatters of paint here and there. Then I arranged my traingles and stitched down the slope of each with some shiny silver thread.
I layered some chipboard embellishments, some die cuts, and even some transparencies over the photos.
And the little sled chipboard piece was the perfect accent, as was this die cut for my title! I added a few additional snowflakes here and there punched from white cardstock and a few sequins for sparkle, too!
