Winter Scene Stair Step Card

This is a pretty simple card looking back at it.  It would be a good card to mass produce for Christmas cards.  I think I will make more for my cards this year.
The whole card was made using the Imagine Snow Angel card.  I saw the background paper in the book and thought it would be the perfect backdrop for a stair step card.  I love making these if I can out all the pieces together right and this cartridge made it so easy.  The front two folds I ran through the Cuttlebug using the swirls folder and then sanded it to look like snow. ??
That is what is nice about printing the paper with the Imagine is that is makes it a white core paper that can be sanded.
Here is a side view where you can see how the pieces are put on.  I added some pearl pen to the "snow" on top of the buildings and a couple of the trees in the background.  Behind the house, I stamped a verse.
There was layers that could have been cut out for the snow people and the house but I chose not to cut them since the pieces would be layered on the card.  I embellished the snow people with some brown pearls.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all had a great week and having fun getting ready for the holidays.
