Is this not a BEAUTIFUL card!!! Lovely as a tree is one of my FAVORITE stamp sets! I stamped it in Early Espresso on Whisper White cardstock...heat dried it to speed things up a bit and then sponged Island Indigo and Pool Party ink around the trees, leaving the ground white for the snowy look. I then inked over the entire image with VersaMark and heat embossed heat and stick powder all over. I quickly sprinkled Dazzling Diamond glitter over the entire thing and heat embossed it again. THE GLITTER DOES NOT COME OFF!!!
I mounted the image on a Basic Gray card base and then used the Apothecary Accents framlits to cut a mat out of Island Indigo cardstock...added a silver bow and the Peace on Earth sentiment from the Calm Christmas stamp set.
The inside of the card was created using the piece that was left from the mat from the outside of the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Calm Christmas stamp set in VersaMark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I finished if off by piercing around the shaped cardstock with the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.
I got the inspiration for this card from another Stampin Up demonstrator whose blog I LOVE...http://www.monicas-passions.blogspot.com/
