It seems a bit surreal to post a snow scene during the middle of a heat wave, but that's the fun of working in the crafting industry! My post for the Stampendous Release Hop today features several fabulous new products. Going with a kraft card base, I added a couple of layers that included a pine green die cut mat, and a die cut oval frame on top. The top panel used the new Cling Jumbo Pine Boughs set...perfect for creating your own pine scene...and was stamped in black and layered with an embossing portion of needles with the new Aged Green Embossing Enamel. The inside panel featured the new Cling Snow Scene Postcard stamped in black on vellum. This panel as well as the top panel were sprinkled with a snow spatter of Shabby Green Embossing Enamel (deceptive name as the majority of color is white). Using a VersaMark pen, I was able to add "snow" to the branches with the same embossing enamel. A little glue marker provided the perfect adhesive for a sprinkle of Medium Crystal Glitter. A small tag with the sentiment was tied to the frame with some great Hemptique cording. I just love how this card turned out, and intend to make several to send to favorite people on my Christmas list. The others get a store-bought card. Lol. Come on, you know you do the same. ;)
