Winter Trees

Howdy Crafters - I have a Christmas Card using 2 of my favorite Tree Stamps. The background stamping is Stampin Up Tree stamp and the oval stamping is Flonz Birch Tree & Winter - thank you for stopping by and have a blessed week! ~ Gail ~

Kraft Outlet Cardstock Buff Ivory
Glitter Tree Burlap Ribbon
Stampin Up Woodland Stamps - Stazon Green Ink

Little Stackers Oval Scallop Die used to cut the Oval Flonz Birch Tree and Winter Stamp - First I stamped with Rangers Black Archival Ink - then I stamped some of the trees with Colorbox Brown Ink - I then took Bloody Mary Powderpuff chalking ink and distressed around the edges - Pop Up tape is behind the Oval Stamped Die Cut

White Gel Pen to add a row of snow at the edge of the trees - I used a Green Spectrum Noir Marker on some of those background trees but it did not show up very well

Inside Card
MFP Stamps - sentiment and leaf branch
Leaf Branch Stazon Green Ink
Gold Embossing Powder for the Merry Christmas Stamp MFP - Versamark
