Tall Birch trees, Sparkly Snow


Hello everyone!
                         Today I wanted to share a Christmas themed card with winter snow.
 I started by applying distress inks on a water color sheet to create a night winter scene and splatter some drops of pearlized water.
The birch trees creates the perfect background for any nature scene. To make the birch trees(hand drawn), I cut out strips from a white card stock and snip small "A" shaped cuts along the edges. I inked the edges with gold color and pearl metallic color. Then heat embossed to show some snow at the edges of the tree.
 I made my own silhouette reindeer stamp out of foam sheet. This is my handmade stamp:
I stamped my image and fussy cut out, heat embossed in gold to give it a feel of Christmas, then tucked over the trees with foam tape. On a white snippet piece to create the ground hill areas and applied snow sparkle glitter powder to give the scene of a frosty cold night.. Then added one more layer with a silver thread ribbon .

 
I covered the whole scene by adding a frame and adhered on my base panel. I attached a silver thread along with frame and added a winter wishes tag with a touch of snow. Finally I accented with some pearls, bow with a star charm.
I hope you enjoyed my creation.

Supplies used:
Distress inks-Tumbled glass, faded jeans and touch of black soot
Fevicryl Pearl metallic colors
Wow Sparkling snow glitter Majestic gold sparkle embossing powders
Sizzix framelits  die cut along with 20 stamp set
Spellbinder Large classics rectangle dies

Vinita, you always amaze me! You are so creative to make your own birch trees and your own deer stamp - that's wonderful! I wouldn't know where to start - I must rely on die cuts as I am just not that creative! If I did not know the difference, I would think yours were die cuts - they look awesome! Well done - I love your background too!
