Today's card was inspired by the great tutorial by Andrea Walford on the Simon Says Stamp blog. I loved her background and design followed her ideas, but added a lot of twists of my own. Here is my card:
The background is created with Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, and Seedless Preserve distress inks. I added the stars using Simon Says Stamp Falling Star stencil with embossing paste and Zing gold embossing powder. But instead of masking, like Andrea, I just cut a circle from another piece of cardstock and glued it on top. I added the Memory Box Snow Tree Landscape, which was die cut and stenciled with green Maya spray mist. The snowman is from The Cat's Pajamas Snowman Accessory kit. I colored him with Copic markers. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things "Jingle All The Way" stamp set. I finished it off with a few snowflake sequins, pink twine, and mini jingle bells.
I am sending this card to Pia, who was kind enough to offer this tree die/stencil as a give away on the Simon Say Stamp Flickr challenge site. Thanks again Pia!
