I saw a video that sparked my interest by TX Stampin Sharon. She used a set that I did not own, but could possibly create with items I do own. Here is her blog post: https://txstampin.com/2019/11/3-snow-front-cards-youll-love-to-make-all-winter-long.html
Her card has a tree on the focal image with a snowman. I didn’t have a snowman that was small enough for the size of tree, so I began looking at trees and items that fit under the tree. I stamped the fir tree first, then looked for a greeting that worked with the tree. The fir tree came from SU Thoughtful Branches and the greeting from The Stamps of Life, penguins2stamp. The stars came from a Lawn Fawn die. I centered the fir tree and added threads behind it for a bit of glittery feeling.
Then onto card two, the one with the deer. I decided to change the size of the focal image and use the tree from GKD Framescapes Winter Trees. Then I added the deer, a few birds way up high, a bit of grass and several stars. I used a die to cut a piece of scrap for the greeting, then placed it behind the focal image like she did in her card.
This was a fun process to go through. I had so many stamp sets out trying to find images that would work well together. I do often mix several sets.
