PEACE

The theme for this week's Merry Monday challenge is "silent night" - so thought "peace" would be an appropriate sentiment for this card done in shades of blue with some silver and glitter.
I made the background by inking a lace doily stamp with distress ink, spraying it liberally with water and then stamping it onto watercolor paper.  The tree was die cut from glitter paper and embossed.  I made the snow just by tearing a piece of cardstock and used a silver glitter pen to outline the snow.  This was a very quick card to make once the background was made - I actually stamped a large sheet so I could make more cards like it.

Supplies: HA S3519 and CL796; Distress ink - tumbled glass; DCWV glitter paper

Thanks for visiting and your kind comments.  Betty

  5. What a pretty card Betty, I LOVE that water stamped snowflake background, that's a great effect and the blue and silver are the perfect colours for a wintery Silent Night card!
