I didn't think I was going to make any Christmas cards yet,
(although I do make them throughout the year so I'm ready when December rolls around!)
but I was inspired by some cards I've seen out there with the snowfall embossing
(such as Christine's beautiful card here)
and remembered I had this lovely embossing folder from Tim Holtz
I cut a panel of watercolor paper slightly smaller than my white card base. I embossed the snowfall on the panel. I die cut the trees using Tim's Tree Line Thinlit dies out of a piece I had in my scraps box.
I made the panel using the Cling Wrap Technique - sprinkling Sleight Blue Infusions onto a piece of Bristol Smooth Surface paper, spritzing with water, then quickly laying a piece of cling wrap over the wet panel and squishing it up to create wrinkles in the cling wrap. Then you let it dry and remove the cling - and you get lovely "marbleized" looking color.
The sentiment is one from Alison Bombers set EAB05 from PaperArtsy.
I stamped Merry Christmas on the inside of my card.
