Peaceful Pines

Silently the snow falls in the forest over the winter pines.

I stamped the greeting before I ran the layer through the embossing folder By embossing through it or over it, it softens the bold black greeting a bit, taking some of the emphasis of it away. That was my plan. It was just too bold with black ink stamped on white cardstock.

I tried something that I learned others had known for a long time, you can flick paint with the Wink of Stella brushes! Position your Wink brush above the object and flick the pen with your fingers. That is how I got the frosted look on the pines.

Honestly this would make such a lovely and easy mass produceable holiday card. And since it has no embellishments, would save a little on costs and make it just that much easier to replicate.

I won't dwell on the supply list today. It is a pretty simple one anyway. White cardstock, green cardstock, softly falling embossing folder, wink of stella pen, and the Carols of Christmas bundle.

Be sure to get a head start on Christmas in August by purchasing the bundle now. It will be in the Holiday catalog which comes out September 1st.

Thanks for stopping by today. Do something creative just for you today. ~Sandy
