Winter Trees

Hello, everyone.  I made this Christmas card yesterday.  Although, now that I look at the sentiment, this could also be used for a Happy Winter card, but my intention is to use it for Christmas.


I used a beautiful digi from Gingerloft called "O Winter Trees" (you can see it here at the Stitchy Bear Outlet) that I won in a challenge - I just love it - so peaceful.  I printed it in blue and added Stickles to the branches and the snow.  I started with a white card base and added some die-cut snowflakes on the right.  These are brand new - my very generous BF Brian got me a whole bunch of die-cuts for my birthday - just what I wanted!  It's a week away but I got them early :-) Yay!!!    On the left I added an embossed snowflake panel and a snowflake sprig die-cut (another gift - thank you, Brian - so grateful for you.)  I mounted the digi on white and then blue cardstock and affixed to the card with foam tape.  Lastly I added a sentiment sticker.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi stamp:  Described above
  • Dies:  Memory Box - Snowflake Sprig, Lindeman Snowflake, Rizza Snowflake
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Snowflakes
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Glitter glue:  Stickles Icycle
  • Sentiment sticker:  Dollarama
