2014 Christmas Card #5

$25 Simon Says Stamp Gift Card (See details here). 

I have another card today made with the November 2014 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. 

Using the Be Joyful stamp set, I heat embossed the snowflakes on white cardstock with white embossing powder. I did the same for the trees using green embossing powder on a heavy-weight white cardstock. I've had the green embossing powder in my stash forever and I have no idea what brand. I don't think it is great quality, as you can see it didn't emboss smoothly, but I kind of like it for this card. gives the trees a bit of dimension. #happyaccidents

I then fussy cut the trees and hand cut a couple of snow banks from white cardstock. Using Distress Ink in Broken China, Evergreen Bough, and Peacock Feathers, I created the sky portion of the card.

I stamped the greeting from the Be Joyful stamp set on one of the "snowy hill" pieces. I layer the back "hill" flat to the cardstock. I added the back tree on top of that. Then I adhered the front "hill" using foam squares. I glued the bottom half of the front tree to the "hill" and used foam squares to adhere the top half of the tree to the sky.  The kit came with a package of enamel accents by My Mind's Eye called Jubilee. I adhered one of the hearts (let's be honest, to cover an inking mishap) above the greeting. Again #happyaccident

I adhered my scene to a piece of white cardstock that was slightly larger than my focal piece. I then popped this up on a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of tree card stock from the kit and then adhere that to a piece of Riding Hood Red cardstock from Stampin' Up. Christmas Red Stickles ornaments were the finishing touch.

I hope you have a wonderful day and happy crafting.
