MC Dec/16 - Easel Rocky Mountain Scene - ECD Dec 25th - I Will Write Peace

Another Rocky Mountain Scene. I have one more to go, but I think I'll take a while before I finish it...

I'm using an Elizabeth Craft Designs die "Dec 25th" also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I'm also using one of the newest quotes from Quietfire Design "I Will Write Peace..."
Scored and folded my mid toned blue card to create the easel (7"w x 5"h). Created the mountain scenes as previously described. Stamped the various trees (Deep Red "Winter Pines" & Crafters Companion "Silhouette Trees")" & , deer (Memory Box "Deer In Field") and geese (Onyx Expressions "Precision Flight") with Versafine Black Onyx.


 
Die cut the "Dec 25th" from dark blue cardstock. Created a shadow layer and cut from white cardstock, then adhered the two together. Adhered the bottom portion to my floor, creasing it to act as my stopper.

Stamped the quote with the black, die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Rectangles" moving the die to get the size I wanted. Sponged with a dirty blue sponge around the edges and adhered to floor with 3D foam tape.

Adhered a piece of light blue Sari ribbon. Tied a bow and added a snowflake button.
