Card Design: Pattie's Creations Challenge #154…Snowy Days/Nights

Well hello there to all my friends, followers and readers out there in blogland! After a nine month leave of absence from the team, I'm back here today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. This time around for Challenge #154, the theme is Snowy Days/Nights. There is certainly enough snow on the ground where I live to provide me with inspiration!

It has been so long since I've done a post like this, let's hope I haven't forgotten how!

General Info:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop). I will print it out and assemble it a later date. 


Digital Images Details:
  • Christmas Mailbox can be found in Pattie's Etsy shop. This image was coloured in digitally using a variety of techniques including layer styles and paper piecing. Credits include:
    • Layer style used on snow: Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.
    • Metal patterns used on Mailbox and pole: Pickled-Jester-Inc (Deviant Art)
    • Paper piecing on envelope: Cruzine's Designs (through Deal Jumbo)
    • Pattern used for clouds/sky background: Lebouef 
  • I also used the snowflakes from another of Pattie's images, Pattieboop Winter Snowflakes. I just digitally cut them out and then duplicated some of them to create the appearance of snow in the background. They were altered using a layer style from Marisa Lerin, Pixel Scrapper.

Digital Sentiment Details: 

Digital Embellishments:
  • The border is made with an edge template created by Marisa Lerin, Pixel Scrapper.
  • The buttons and button threads are assets created by Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.


Digital Sentiment Details:  
  • The sentiment used on the inside is a freebie created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for awesome vintage items for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store.


Digital Paper Products:
  • The paper used as my background is from my mini Snowfest kit.

Digital Embellishment Details:
  •  I have used basic shapes in Photoshop Elements to create matting in behind the images and sentiments and I have applied shadow layer styles to give certain elements some depth. These styles were designed by Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.
