Just Us Girls #2


I made this for the fun new challenge blog Just Us Girls whose challenge this week was to make a card using the paper piecing technique. I immediately thought of the trees in Let It Snow and wanted to paper piece similar to what I saw Linda do a earlier this month with this tree.

I stamped the trees from
Let It Snow with Memento ink and stamped the snowflakes using Versamark and clear embossed them before sponging so they would really pop and look like falling snow. The trees were paper pieced with Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses dp for mine and love the swirly pattern. Lastly I added some Polar White Flower Soft for the snow.  (edited to add...the only thing I forgot was to add a bit of pink, Oops!, now I will just have to make another card) *~*

Have a wonderful day!
Blessings,



Card Deets:
Stamp: Let It Snow
Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, WW and Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses
Ink: Memento Black, Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky
