Snowmen and Trees Side Step Card

It's time for My Artistic Adventures Challenge #14.   Since it's a busy time of year, there is only one challenge this month.  You can enter HERE

I love Heather's Victorian Vintage Snowman collage sheets.

I paired them with Heather's Non Traditional Christmas Tree Tags collage sheets

And I printed the candy canes from Heather's Vintage Mitten Candy Cane collage sheets.

I made a side step card using a tutorial that can be found on the internet.  I reversed it so that the largest block was in front for the sentiment and so that, when I stair stepped the trees, the smallest were furthest away.

Put them all together, and this is what I came up with:

I always edge my images in ink.  Some of the images are on foam for a 3-D effect.  I used a gold glitter pen on the trees the snowmen are holding.

And I'm linking up to Unruly PaperArts blogozine Twelve Days of Christmas Link Up Party.

Wow, I love this. What a great idea to reverse the step card so the trees were in the back, farthest away. Great use of all of your beautiful images.
