Let It Snow

I've been using the fabulous Tall Conifer once again along with the snowflake for 100 Proof Press to create yet another Christmas Card, however if you changed the text/sentiment it would also be perfect for a Winter birthday card.
I stamped my background with the snowflake using Versamark ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder, blending broken china ink over the top, adding faded jeans to the edges.
I cut a circle from my square of card and added the circle to the aperture, stamping the tall conifers with black archival ink, colouring the background with broken china ink and spritzing with water to give a snowy feel to my card. For added dimension I included three wooden stars and wooden letters for SNOW, both coloured with broken china ink.  I found the pewter corners in my crafting goodies and added them to the opposite corners for added interest.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend.  I am off to do some weeding on the allotment and then attack some of those many tasks in my garden. Tracy x
