Glistening Snow Tree

First of all, let me say that the Vellum is a nice addition for a background option when you emboss the snow images.  Let this glistening snow tree be your inspiration for some beautiful cards using the products from this promotion.   Additionally, these products are perfect for all year round, not just during the holidays.  The Shaded Spruce is the perfect Christmas tree color.  Also, enjoy the inside card sample below.

Shaded Spruce Thanks

The Shaded Spruce Thanks card is created using the Falling for Leaves stamp set.  I used the color wash technique so that the color on the leaf is spread around.

Fall comes in so many colors.  This Shaded Spruce Thanks card has a wonderful glow to it.  You can’t really even see how there are a few different colors used for inking.  Adding the thread and gems is a way to top off the card and bring some attention to the leaf.  Also, using the Aqua Painter for the watercolor spreads the ink as light or as dark as you would like.
