Stars and Snow


Well yesterday was the day that Simon Says Stamp released a new set of Exclusives and I was lucky to receive some in the post.

These Simon Says Stamp SketchTrees are going to be very handy when I find my mojo or even an original thought but I'm sure the talented Shop DT will have loads of ideas I can steal.

I used Simon Says Stamps Bundle of Shapes although not an A5 card it does fit in a C6 envelope if you don't make it too bulky.
I also used Simon Says Stamp Slopes and Hills well you do have to have something for the trees to stand on. After several attempts of water colouring just where I plan the trees to be, this one was the best.

 I don't recommend to put the card together with glue then decide to use embossing powder. But I decided to use the sentiment from Be Joyful, also the snow. Can't work out where I got the stars it was a Simon Says Stamp set that had some odd stars. When I added heat to set the powder everything lifted off and the card had to spend the night under some heavy dies to make sure it restuck and laid flat!

Great stylistic trees from SSS Debby and I love the swipes of green with the white snowy dots behind them and the gold stars look so pretty. I love the stitched rectangle mat and slopes which give a clean and elegant finish to the card too. x
