Sheena Douglas Evergreen Trees Christmas card

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at ABC Christmas.

Fabiola is hosting this month and she has a lovely surprise prize for the winner.

The year is whizzing by and we have reached S and T already so we have:

S for Snow
T for Trees

I made one card that embraces both of the themes

I began with the background by masking off a square shape and adding moon and snowbank masks before taking a snowfall stencil and pressing versamark ink through it to create a resist. Once it was dry, I blended ink to create the sky using Distress Oxide inks and added a few water drops to add to the snowy feel. I then added versamark ink to the snowbank and embossed it with Wow Sparkling Snow glitter. The panel was cut with a scalloped square die and the Clearly Besotted sentiment was added at the bottom.

I cut the Sheena Douglas Evergreen Trees 3 times and left the top one in the die and pressed versamark through the die holes so I could add the same snow embossing powder to the trees.

I finished off by adding a little pink and grey ink to the moon and inking the edge of the mat with blue ink to create a frame.

As always, you'll find lots of inspiration from my Teamies over on the ABC Challenge blog and I can't wait to see what you have to show us this month.

I'd like to play along at

Thanks for stopping by.
