Snowy Woods

Meet today's card.
It has a calm, wintery feel to it.  I can hear the snow crunching underfoot.

To begin, I took a piece of heavy white cardstock and placed it inside my Distressed Stripes  embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  I turned the paper around and embossed again creating a criss-cross bkg.  Next, I painted the Snowy Grove stamp from Penny Black with some brown Brushos I diluted with some water and stamped onto my cardstock.  While that dried, I die cut the snowflake also from PB onto more heavy white cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment panel using the Christmas Sentiments, glued that over the dry embossed bkg.  To help define the area better, I embossed a line above and below it using my ScorPal.
I pop dotted the trees to one side, the snowflake added to the side and then I added some shimmery Nuvo Drops over the snowflake on the trees.

Santa arrives tonight!!
Thanks for coming by and taking a look.

Great idea to just use a portion of that stamp! Love the simple colour scheme of brown and white. The embossed background and snowflake add lots of extra interest while still keeping it very CAS.
