DT 66 - Ski Snowfall Double Shaker

 Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge #66!

This week, it's all about creating a scene - any season, any location, etc. The second part of the challenge is to add some form of transportation to your scene and then link up with The Paper Girls challenge (#207). The condensed graphic is below - additional details can be found on the Double Trouble blog.

This card took me quite some time to complete - it's all created using various Cricut cuts. I cut various trees, the moose and the skiis first and inked around the edges of all the pieces. The background was sponged using Distress Oxide inks and then a white chalk marker was used to create snow. The back layer of trees was adhered directly to the background and I added some snowy confetti along with some silver stars to turn that piece into a shaker. The remaining trees were adhered onto the acetate and then more snowy confetti was added. The top layer was created by welding some ovals together to look like a snowy hill. I adhered the moose and and skis just under that top piece of acetate and added a sentiment along with some silver embellishing thread. The final layer was placed on top of the previous layer to create two separate sections with snow. I inked the white area on the front with a very light Linen ink pad as snow is never really white :) 

I am linking up my project with the Paper Girls Challenge #207.

  1. Hello, Alyson! I adore scene cards - they are one of my favourites! And you went beyond and made it a shaker! I love the cute moose! Your card is gorgeous!

  2. So much fun texture and elements on this card! Perfect for a Utah card because it's all about snow and skiing here! Very cute :)

  3. Quite a contrast between our clipart; but your shaker card is beautiful and a winter scene we had so many of back East. Should have used your moose on my card... lol but I included the photo I was able to get in Wyoming jeep trip.

  4. Your winter scene turned out great, especially with the sparkly snow! Very "cool!"

  5. Such sparkle, Alyson! Your card is fabulous and I really need to try this "double" technique. Our weather is beginning to change here in Arizona - finally! The nights are cooler and so pleasant. I don't miss the heavy snow of Northern New York State one bit!

  6. This shaker card is stunning, Alyson! Such a beautiful winter scene. Thank you so much for joining the Paper Girls on this fantastic challenge!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment - it truly makes me smile :)
