I wanted to make a card for The Stampman's latest Blog challenge to make a card with the theme of bleak midwinter! (december-challenge-in-bleak-mid-winter)
I used two IndigoBlu stamps - Bare Forest and from Here Come Santa. I used some gloss card and inks to colour the background, some crystal glitter for a snowy affect and embossed the trees with an embossing powder from The Stampman (moonglow embossing powder). The backing card is embossing with with embossing folder from Spellbinders, distressed and tinted with a metallic inkpad. The snowflakes were cut with various spellbinders snowflake die with shrink plastic which has been coated first with crystal embossing powder.
|Backing card is Coredinations - it is black with blue core. The ribbons are from my stash - really needs more elaborate ribbon but quite like these.|
