Its still Winter

It appears to still be winter for most of us. I was listening to the news about the huge storm that the East coast got hit with and some huge freeway stoppage that went on for like 20 miles and people were just stuck out there for like 12 hours something. Now if I totally got my info wrong or over embellished, just remember I listen to this stuff while listening to 3 boys playing/fighting (lol).

So appropriately, Stamp Something Challenge blog issued a "Something Cold, Winter Wind" Challenge. I had made some seasonal cards for Lori's blog - Clearly iStamp and appropriately enough, my winter card will definitely fit the bill.

I used my oval nestabilities to cut my card and layers. For the background I used the snowflake stamp from a Clear Dollar Stamp set called Tree-mendous Wishes and stamped it with Versamark, used clear embossing powder and then sponged the background with ink. For the snow, I used Liquid Applique and then puffed it up with my heat gun. I also added a bit of glitter to it, but its not showing up so well on the picture. I also stamped an extra tree, cut it out, and then adhered it to card front.

Winter/snow can be such a pain, but it is also beautiful and should be fun! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
