Its Cold Outside..............

.................Inspiring me to make this card using the Large Tree Skeleton and Snowflake, Leafy for 100 Proof Press.
As soon as I saw the snow outside I thought of this bare tree and decided to add white embossing for that icy feel to my piece. I have added machine stitching around the outside edge for a little depth which lifts this piece a little.
A little corrugated card breaks up the blue, again with a little machine stitchine added to the outside edges. Two snowflake embellishments add dimension.
I have used the snowflake, leafy to create my background, stamping with a VersaMark stamp pad and embossing with white embossing powder to add to the icy feel, again inspired from our weather outside at the moment.

I would also like to enter this into The Artistic Stamper Creative Team's challenge which this month is CHRISTMAS

Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend. Tracy x x
