Friends of Speedy TV challenge #148 - Scenic Card

The Friends of Speedy TV challenge this week is to make a scenic card.  Join us here for a chance to win a stamp set and for all of the details on the latest challenge.


I usually make a couple extra cards after Christmas to stick in my stash for next year, just to get a little head start. For this one I made a church scene using the Little Church mini set and the New Pines set, with the greeting from the Crisp Winter stamp set.  I added glitter glue to the church and trees for sparkle as well as crystal sparkles in the sky. The background was raised with foam tape, as well as the trees and greeting.


Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, foam tape, Stampin Up markers, glitter glue, crystal stickers.
