This card is so amazing! I just love it!!! The texture and snow on those trees looks so real! Eeee! 🙂

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I layered on Real Red (4″x 5-1/4″) and Whisper White (3-3/4″ x 5″). Using the Card Front Builder Thinlits, I die cut the double and the single tree in Garden Green. I added these to the top half of the card and then placed the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper piece over the tree bottoms.

Now for adding snow to the trees. I used 2 of the Palette Knives; one to scoop out some and one to apply it on. Since it dries so quickly, I didn’t want to leave the tub of Embossing Paste open while working. Using the second Palette Knife, I pulled a bit of the paste off and just lightly touched the edges of the tree. Just a few light dabs all over the trees is all you need! It gives that light snowy look. Be sure to tap a little in the middle of the tree so it’s all around and not just on the sides.

For the greeting, I stamped it from the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set in Real Red Ink onto Whisper White. I die cut the greeting with the Layering Squares Framelits as well as the Gold Foil layer. I added the greeting to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish off the card, I added a Gold Metallic Enamel Star to the top of the one tree!

I spent a long time trying to figure out how to layer the greeting. Here are some of the ideas I was playing with – Garden Green, Silver Foil, Gold Foil, or Crumb Cake! Which one would you pick? Let me know in the comments below!
