Stamp Highlight | Written in the Snow

I love the new script sentiments from Written in the snow, especially since they so beautifully fill up the space on a standard A2 card. 

However, I thought I’d do something a bit different with them today – Make it smoke in the sky instead of words in the snow. So instead of a standard A2 card, I made a 5×7 card so I could fit in the gingerbread house too.

I started off my card by cutting a piece of white cardstock to 5×7 inches, then ink blended the sky using Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans distress oxides, which I splattered with white watercolor paint.

Then in cut a snowy hill using the Landscape Trio dies, and blended a bit of tumbled glass at the bottom too.

I mirror stamped the house from A Cookie Christmas to make the chimney fit with the end of the sentiment, and to fill in the scene, I stamped a few trees from Pix’s Happy Holidays too. 
If you want to see which Copic colors I used, you can see the color map at the end of the post.

After my sky background was completely dry, I laid out all my images in my stamping platform and then positioned the sentiment stamp to make sure it would all fit. Then I heat embossed it using some textured white embossing powder.
Then I could glue all my images in place, placing some trees in front of the hill and some behind. 

Before I added my panel to my card base, I cut off a little bit from each side, so there would be a white frame around it when I glued it to my card.
