Snow Covered Trees



I have been gone most of the day.  I had the idea for making the above card but it did not turn out as nice as I wanted, but I don't have time make a new one so I am posting this one just so you can see the idea. 

I stamped trees from Gina K's "Tree Silhouettes" with always artichoke ink on "moonlit fog" CS also from GKD.  I then used a Martha Stewart punch for branches and glued layers over the stamped trees.  I used two different colors CS.  I used one of the snowflakes from Gina's  "Holiday Cheer" stamp set for the large snowflakes. The part I am not very happy with is the snow.  I used some Sparkle Snow by Delta.  I am sure it is very pretty when applied better than what I did.  I silver embossed the greeting from GKD "Holiday Greetings" and cut it out with a Nestability die and attached with a dimensional dot.

I will definitely play with making more trees using this stamp and punch,  and hopefully it will turn out prettier.  Have you used this punch to create trees?

What a brilliant idea! Never would have thought of using the foliage punch for trees. Your snow looks fine to me.

I think it is gorgeous! I don't know if it looks different in person, but the photo of it is awesome! I bet it would look great in a shadow box too!

Selma,

Well, in my opinion I think this is a beautiful card, and you captured trees with fresh dusting of snow, and it looks great. You shouldn't be so hard on yourself, you really are very creative and have beautiful cards to show for it.
