Snow Angels

Snow Angels, do you remember making them? I do!! You had to find a big area of virgin snow, jumping into the perfect spot. (so your footprints didn't show!) Then carefully lower yourself into position and create! Afterward, we would lie there in the stillness for a bit, eating a handful of snow and gazing into the sky! Getting out of the spot took as much careful planning as getting in, jumping back to where our last footprints were!


All those happy memories came back when I saw this wonderful image from Fred She Said, called Emma the snow angel. She comes in outline form or pre-colored as seen here!!

This is definitely a CAS card! Had to keep the area clean from 'footprints'! lol I used the homemade snow (Holly's styrofoam ball method), a scored line and SU!'s words of wisdom stamp: Each one of us is God's special work of art. This was so much fun to make! It's for a winter birthday card!

Here are the challenges,

Paper Cutz
~snow.
The Pink Elephant~winter.
Sketchy Colors~green/blue.
Corrosive chall~winter wonderland.
Wednesday Stamper~blue & white.


Have a super duper day! Blessings!!!

Maria, this is just adorable! And my goodness, how quick, if it's pre-colored! I have to say that I really like the look of the styrofoam better than Flower Soft, or Sparkly Fluff!!! Great job on your card, my friend!

Holly said...

making snow angels was one of my most favorite things to do in the snow when I was kid. I still do it when ever we get a snow - we just don't get them very often. Well, I liked making snow ice cream too!

I love the way you've added the snow and the sentiment is such a sweet one.

Shelly said...

Fabulous card, Maria!!! I love it!

Even more then my making snow angels, this reminds me of when my dd did. Being born and raised in Florida, she only got to make snow angels a few times, so it's an extra special memory. Thankfully I have some great pictures.

Beth said...

Oh Maria this is so gorgeous and life like I love it and so remember making snow angels still do when I get the chance.

Debby said...

This just couldn't be any more awesome. It's beautiful. And you know I need to remember those pre colored images make great quick & easy cards! Love the snow. And yes your description of the snow angel was perfect and indeed brought back many memories. :-) I still do it when we get snow. Which isn't very often.

Ann said...

tina said...

Oooo, Maria, this is AMAZING. The colouring the flocking, the sentiment!!! It's all fab. Thanks for sharing it with us at TPE this week.

Jessica G. said...

Wow -- awesome card, Maria! The white backdrop is perfect not only for the theme, but also for making this beautifully colored image pop.

I remember making snow angels; everyone should do that at least once, right? Or is that at least once every snow??

Tanja said...

You're a genius with glitter (homemade snow)

XDzero said...

Lol what a fabulous fun card Maria and it has brought back my snow angel memories, love your snow! My kids were out making snowmen a couple of days ago, unfortunatly there was also a lot of muck under the snow so our lovely snowman looked more like a chocolate chip snowman lol but fun was had by all and thats the main thing. Off to check out your other gorgeous creations. Hugs Donna x
