Let it snow!

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.
