Frosty Tree

Brrrrrr, doesn't this photo just make you feel the cold crisp air of winter?  This is the photo inspiration for the current Card Caravan Challenge and the Hybrid Chick.  These are so many possibilities to work with from this photo, the colors, the reflection, the wintery scene, trees, water, you name it!

The trees and the snow inspired me to create this card.  I used the digital kit Christmas Magic by Etc. by Danyale. I love the color palette in this kit. The dark paper (center of card) is sprayed with Glimmer Mist (Marshmallow) to give it some shine.  I then used a Tattered Angels Glimmer Screen from the Winter Trees set to create the tree image. I coated it in white ink and pressed it on the paper like a stamp.  

The snowy boughs were created using Flower Soft Polar White. I added a touch of fine white glitter on top of it to give it some extra sparkle.  The sentiment is a digital stamp from the Christmas Sentiments set by Arty Pants Digital Stamps. These are great to use with print and cut projects in your electronic cutter. Which is how I created the label. It is an element in the Christmas Magic kit. I brought that and the sentiment into my Silhouette Software, lined them up, sized them, traced and print and cut.  I popped it up with some double sided foam adhesive.
