CCC Snowy Trees

Good morning to you all and I hope it finds you all well. Thanks for dropping by. This is my card for our Christmas Card Club, which is not actually due until tomorrow, but since I have another DT card due then I am posting a day earlier as I normally do.  The theme this week is Snowy Trees and it was my choice. We take it in turn to choose the theme which makes it interesting.

My Card

Inside Card

6" x 6" base card
Duotone blue card - Penniesworth
Background paper - "Snowboarder Girl" from The Paper Shelter
Pierced Noble Rectangles - Sue Wilson
Icicle die - Joycrafts
Frosted Spruce & Frosted Pine dies - Memory Box
Sentiment stamp - Inkylicious

I added glitter to the background trees and Twinklets Diamond Dust to the die cut trees. I put some sellotape across the bottom of the stamp which allowed me to just stamp the word "Winter".  For the inside of the card I used the same background paper but faded it.  I then moved the sellotape so that it covered the word Winter and was then able to stamp the second part of the stamp for the insert.

This was such an easy card to make but I really like it.  It could also be used for a winter/Christmas  birthday I guess.  I had a friend whose birthday was Boxing Day and he rarely got birthday cards, which is such a shame.

Anyway that's all from me today.

Take care.
