Winter Sports

Welcome and many thanks to my new followers.
I saw this cut file on Birds cards and straight away thought of a person (male)  who as a keen skier would love a birthday card like this. I've not been able to put many layers on it as I would have liked as it's going to be sent abroad. I've used a background paper with snow flakes on it to set the scene. The layers are paper to save weight apart from the skis which are light card. The skis, poles, ski mask, gloves and upper arm are popped up with foam pads. I typed the sentiment into Silhouette Studio and cut it in the matching red paper, I hand cut the black mat and kept fairly straight lines more suited to a male.
