Snowy Trio

The new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday is 3, 5, 7 which I actually thought I would find quite difficult.  But when I put on my thinking cap, it wasn't too bad.

I used a lovely image from Purple Onion Designs, which included 3 snowmen (and 3 trees!) so that was the 3 covered.

I then realised that if I used one of my favourite shaped card bases, there are 6 pointy bits (technical term) on the base and I usually put a pearl on each one, so if I put one more pearl in a corner, that would be the 7 covered.

So I was just left with the 5.

Well, after thinking I could add 5 snowflakes, but then disregarding that because the image is quite large and I didn't think I could fit in 5 die cut snowflakes, I had a brainwave!

I used 5 Colours; red, green, blue, orange and brown.  Genius!!!  ;0)



I stamped the image twice, and fussy-cut out one set of the snowmen.  I then raised them up on foam pads to create more texture on an otherwise quite simple card.
