Hi everyone! Diana here today to share this fun snowy capped Christmas card.
I started this card by blending two distress oxide blues on the background to give a pretty snowy look.
Once I finished the blues I used the new distress oxide color rustic wilderness on the bottom half to blend in with my trees.
I, then, used Tim Holtz arctic cover plate to get the snowflakes from the Turquoise/Turquoise starstruck foiled paper.
Next, I used Tim Holtz tree line die and cut it four times. Twice from white cardstock and once from two different green colored cardstock.
To create the white caps I cut the tip off of each white tree and adhered them onto the green tree lines.
I wanted to add a bit more foiled paper so I cut my sentiment from Silver/Silver starstruck foiled paper. I also cut it out three times from white cardstock and layered them on top of each other to give some dimension.
Closer look at the process of layering. I love doing this as it gives more stability and I don't have to cut up any foam!
Once I have all of these pieces done I start putting my card together adding the two layers of trees with the lighter set in the background.
To finish off the bottom I cut a strip of white cardstock to look like snow drifts in the forest and add a touch of tumbled glass distress oxide to it. I then add the snowflakes around the trees and off the edges.
The final step is adding the sentiment. I didn't want to cover up the trees so I added it in the upper left hand corner. In this picture you can really see the dimension the layers add.
A closer look at the sky and snowflakes.
