LaBlanche Winter Stroll

 It has been a while since I have worked with the LaBlanche stamps and thought you would love this beautiful stamp called "Winter Stroll".  One of my favorite things to do in the winter is go for a nice leisurely  walk when there are large beautiful snowflakes coming down.

This is a 5.5" x 6" card.  I started by using the Anna Griffin "Acanthus" embossing folder to emboss the background.  This folder has a lot of nice swirls that looks great behind all the other elements added to this card.  The pretty corners are the smaller corners from the JustRite "Filigree Corners" die set.  This is one of the sets designed by Becca Feeken.  After die cutting and embossing the corners, I attached them to a piece of black card stock and cut around the outside edges so they would show up on the white background.  

The LaBlanche "Winter Stroll" was stamped using VersaFine black ink and clear embossed.  I placed the Marianne Design "Petra's Ornaments" frame over the stamped image and die cut, then embossed it.  I used scissors to cut around the inter embossed area.  Next I die the Petra's Ornaments frame using white card stock, and embossed it.  The LaBlance stamped image was attached in the center.  I used a black marker to go around the edges to help frame the stamped image.

I wanted to give the card a little dimension so I die cut the Marianne Design LR0136 and COL 1330 evergreen trees to place around the stamped image.  In order to "ground" the trees, I cut out two snow bank pieces and attached them to the bottom of the card.  The trees were tucked into the snow and attached with dimensional tape.  Since the trees are white on white, I added Distress Stickles" Clear Rock Candy" glitter to them and the edges of the snow banks, to help them show up.  To give the stamped image a snowy effect, I also added glitter to it.  To finish off the card, I added a black silk bow.

Hope you enjoy this card.
