Snowy Christmas

I made this card for a friend for Christmas, it was inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest. I used many products to create my card.

The tree is a die cut by Tim Holts cut out of glossy card stock and with Stazon Ink The snow was added snow with Snow Writer and a little bit of glitter.

I used several different Spellbinder Nestabilities dies for the background along with embossing the cuts with an embossing folder. I stamped in the background with a small snow flake stamp and embossed the snowflakes with silver embossing powder. 

To complete the card I added a cross, Arty Pants sentiment, Martha Stewart Snowflake punch and bling. 

Hope my friend enjoys the card.  Thank you for stopping by today and have a creative week.
