Evergreen Tidings


I looked out my window and saw the heavily snow covered trees. Wouldn't that make a beautiful card? This scene has been on many cards, but it never gets old :)

 This sketch from Nacho Average Challenges made me think of the window I was looking through.

And these colors from Colour Q just seem to be the perfect combination for what I was thinking :)

I don't know if you can see it, but there is Iridescent Ice frosting a few of the trees. The shape of the Mosaic reminds me of Christmas ornaments, so felt very natural with these trees :)
  • Stamps: Evergreen, Christmas Messages
  • Ink: Always Artichoke, Versamark
  • Paper: Crumb Cake, Real Red Core'dinations, Chocolate Chip
  • Other: Big Shot with Modern Mosaic embossing folder and Deco Label framelits, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Paper Piercer and Mat, Embossing Buddy, Iridescent Ice and White embossing powders, Heat Tool, Natural Trim ribbon, Rhinestones Basic Jewels, Sanding Block, Signo white gel pan, dimensionals
 Inside, a couple of stamped-off trees in the corner and a sentiment in Chocolate Chip over them finishes the card off.


Don't forget to come back on Monday for the next edition of the Stamp Review Crew!

This is beautiful! I love how your trees look split across the three panels, and the sentiment in white on Chocolate cardstock is very striking. Beautiful card, and thanks for joining in the challenge with the Nachos!
