Christmas Card Club - Let it Snow on a Sheltering Tree

You know it's a bad day for taking pictures when it's raining, cloudy and the battery is flat in your camera!  However I've managed to get a picture of my card for Christine's challenge in our fortnightly Christmas card club.  'Let it snow' was the challenge and I've used a part of the Sheltering Tree Stampin' Up! set  and to create the sound along the ground one stamp from Work of Art.

I used a brayer to add different shades of blue to some whisper white card stock and then stamped the tree silhouette twice allowing some shadowing with the craft white.  I've cut an aperture in my card base and added a layer of vellum before adding my picture behind.  On the vellum I heat embossed with white craft ink some of the snow using another stamp from Sheltering Tree.

My sentiment is from the Alphabet Rotary stamp which is versatile obviously because you make it say what you want.  Some Everyday Chic Designer washi tape adds a touch of silver with silver foil card to add a banner and a frame for my scene using two oval frame lit dies together to create the frame.

Don't forget to pop by the other members of our Christmas Card Club and let's hope the sunshine is back soon.

  3. A wonderful way to use this great tree image. Love the snowy look achieved using the vellum. It created quite a foggy look to the scene (which we see here when it's a snowstorm). The blue tones added to the foggy look and the silver frame just drew the eye right into the icy treescape. Wonderful way to interpret the Let it Snow challenge. Love it. TFS & happy Sunday

    1. The vellum is great for 'softening'. We don't get much snow where I live so send some of yours here next winter, but you can keep the fog thank you. Zx
