Christmas Card Blog Hop

It's that time of year so we're having a Christmas Card Blog Hop! We're the same group that does the Stamp of the Month hop so you know you're going to see some great ideas! If you've come from
Gina Brandstetter's blog you're on the right path. Just keep clicking on the links in each post to hop along!

My card is in non-traditional colors....which is my favorite way to go with Christmas cards. I cut a stencil with my paper trimmer for the rectangle. I sponged with Pewter ink to create the background for the trees. Leaving part of the rectangle lighter gives depth. Then I just stamped in Charcoal ink and added some Clear Shimmer Brush for a frosted, snowy look. The layers in the background are Pewter on the left and Silver Foil on the right. The foil doesn't photo well.
