Inside and Out

      Each month I play in the progressive challenge at The Outlawz and this month the image (Claudia's Plant) was generously supplied by SheepSki Designs.  I added another SheepSki image, called Winter Deer, so that I could show a wintery scene through the window.

     I colored with ProMarkers, then cut out the window frame with a die from Cottage Cutz.  The plant has been fussy cut and that was no easy chore.  :-D  When I added it to the card front, I glued only the pot and one leaf so there is some lovely dimension to the plant which shows so much more IRL than in the photo.  The two sentiment pieces were cut with dies from Avery Elle.  The background (card front) has been dry embossed with my 'Linen' EF.

     Hours after I finished the card, I kept looking at it and wishing I had put the plant on a table instead of the floor but it's too late now.  Maybe next time.  In any case, it was  fun way to use a tropical plant on a winter Christmas card.

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Excellent fussy cutting never easy when you are an island to remove and there are a few of those here, impressed. Love the overall design of your card as well I think many of us would like to have that as the scene outside our window. Thank you for sharing with us at Inspiration Station and Good Luck xx
