My eldest sister, Katherine, asked me to make her some Christmas cards for her to send to some friends. She lives in Vermont and loves nature and winter so designed this card for her.
To make it I first took some Whisper White ink and a Blending Brush and made the “snow” along the bottom of a piece of Crumb Cake card stock. Then I stamp the moon using the stamp set called Mountain Air. I dried the ink using my Heat Tool and then did both things a couple of more times to make the ink more opaque. After it was dry I stamped the trees randomly in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive ink. The sentiment is from a retired stamp set called Christmas Pines. I chose this sentiment because it has a special meaning to my sister. The last thing I did was put the snowflakes around using a white gel pen. I layered the stamped piece on a larger piece of Mossy Meadow card stock and a Crumb Cake card base.
I was reaching into my drawer of envelopes to pull some out for her when I saw some retired Crumb Cake (or maybe Kraft) envelopes that went well with this card. I added a piece of Beauty Of The Earth Designer Series Paper to the inside of the envelope which matched the card perfectly.
