This is not necessarily a Christmas card, but it sure could be. It involved some creative stamping but it was not hard to do. I had this vision in my mind of snow covered trees in the forest.
I first stamped the trees (Technique Junkie Stamps Hillside Pines - http://techniquejunkies.com/hillside-pines/) with a nice dark green ink. I stamped them in layers - one on top of the others. I then cleaned my stamp very well. I used a heat tool to dry the green ink. Then I used my embossing buddy over the entire sheet of card stock so I wouldn't get embossing powder where I didn't want it. I inked my tree stamp lightly with Versamark ink. I didn't want to get a solid image. I did not use my MISTI because I didn't want to have the Versamark exactly where my green trees were stamped. Then I covered the Versamark with white embossing powder and heat set. I repeated this process over both the tall and short trees.
Then I used my handmade and home drawn could stencil. Sponging different colors over the different sections of the stencil gives a unique look and no sky will ever look exactly the same.
Then I used the Winter Wonderland stamp from the Technique Junkies Winter Wonderland Sayings set - http://techniquejunkies.com/winter-wonderland-sayings-set-of-3/.
Several layers and ruffled ribbon finish the card. Enjoy your winter.
Have a great day -- and get inky!
