Hello! Is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas where you are? It sure is here. There are huge flakes falling as I write this, in fact.
Today's card was one that I had a lot of fun making. I started off with the idea of using this tree die cut from the Cricut cartridge Jolly Holidays. Instead of using the ornaments that came with the cut, I used some little jems for ornaments. I also covered the snow in Frosted Lace stickles. I love that color for snow, because it's less glittery and more about giving texture. I used foam dots to raise the bottom snow pile up, although you can't really see that from the picture.
I used a piece of background paper from a DCWV pack I picked up at Michaels. It has gold foil accents- I tried to get a picture that showed the foil, and I thinkn the best way to tell is by looking at the tree in the top middle. I ran two strings of ribbon around the card and then put a scrap piece of paper over it with the die cut on top.
Next, I stamped a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Christmas Wishes stamp set onto a tag from a die cut pack I also got at Michaels. I used a pearl to mimic the look of having it attached with something other than just monoadhesive. Then I added three more pearls in the top corner to balance it out.
