Joy  2014
Welcome to The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and I want to thank everyone that played around with us last challenge we had a wonderful time and seen all kinds of beautiful card so I do hope you will play a long with us again this time and the twist is “First day of Winter and that is Dec 21”! So thought this would be the perfect card to make and I have been wanting to make it and I have someone special I want to give it too. The die I used are from Cherry Lyn Birch tree with cute critters B370, Christmas Knick Knacks B331, Impression Obsession Tree (small) 2147-E. Our sponsor for the month of December is:*/Annelogo.PNG
Anne’s Digital Designs.

It is the inside of the card. The card is called a 3 step card it is one the Norma made at her blog From My Craft Room. If you have not seen some of Norma’s card you much stop by and see some of her creations. If you click on the 3 step card that will take you to her blog and to the tutorial Norma did for everyone. I found it much easier to print out the directions she has in red 3 Step Card Template PDF file and click on that and you can print the template out and also it will let you save it.

Here I have the card open all the way. The J-O-Y letter are from a pack of letters I already had.

What is so nice is that it folds together perfectly. Used Aleene’s Turn Snow., Twinklets diamond dust to make things sparkle. Used Copic opaque white so it looked like it was snowing. For the ice rink I used Versa Mark Pen and added clear embossing power and heat set the power and it gave a clear look like ice.

these are the copic markers I used to color the images. This is one of Ppink images called playing in the snow.

Wow. Where do I start? This is a magnificent card creation. I was impressed enough by the scene on the card front; then you opened it to reveal a fantastic pop-up.
Your coloring is fabulous. I love the scene with the ice rink and snowy tree. You have really outdone yourself with this design, Patricia.
Blessing hugs,

OMGosh, Pat, you had to color three images for this beauty! That's a lot of work! And you did such a wonderful job--love the colors you chose for each of them! The card front is so adorable! Really love the fun scene you created with the die cuts, snow, and sparkle! :^)

wowowow!~ Patricia, this is an amazing card - I'm not sure whether to be more taken with the drama and background design, or the wonderful colors in all three delightful images! GORGEOUS! Truly an artist, and I so covet your skills! How fun to enjoy the whimsy and "cold outdoor air" on these sweet faces. All the details, and die cuts, make your creation a masterpiece! Happy Christmas to you! hugs, de
