When I was really young, my family packed into our bright green Volkswagen Van and traveled to a big Christmas tree farm to select our tree each year. It was always a fun for us children – possibly because we weren’t responsible for paying and didn’t have to do any of the heavy-lifting. Oh, the nostalgia! I haven’t had a live Christmas tree in several years, but this year, I’ll be checking out the tree sales, using my hard-earned cash on a tree and strapping a tree to the roof of my car. Here’s a fun card I made to honor this annual ritual that’s just around the corner:
- Heating it Up. You already know that I adore White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. You also know that I love to snip out tiny images. Right? If you didn’t, then now you do. With this project, I combined two of my loves an embossed this card on Real Red and Basic Gray and the tree on Garden Green. I snipped them all out and pieced them together. What fun!
- Cooling it Down. I love the white spots on this Garden Green piece of Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper. While the green background is not blue or black (as would be a typical color for a snowy skyline), I think it’s beautiful and is still reminiscent of a snowy sky. So guess what I did? I made it fit as a snowy sky. Yay!
- Icing it Over. To add a special effect to the windows of the tree-toting car, I simply colored them in with my Stampin’ Chalk Marker. I considered lots of options – cropping out the windows, adding white paper over the windows. The marker, though, gave me the effect I wanted. Woo hoo!
