Snow Slopes

Hello again!
Here is my third card.
This set, Patterned Pines, was actually sent to me from my wonderful friend Katrina!
Thank you so much, it really makes beautiful trees.

I didn't know what I wanted to do with this card, but I knew I wanted to use Real Red this time. After doing the other two in other shades, I wanted the true color for my third card. So, along with that came the Glorious Green, so bold and beautiful, perfect for Christmas.

This was a pretty basic card, in that it's clean and crisp without too much going on. I really like that about it. And the red polka dot ribbon was a perfect match for the embossing folder I used.

When you make the snow slope, if you do it just right, you'll get two cards from one piece of white cardstock. Another time savor when you are doing an assembly line of cards for Christmas.

Set: Patterned Pines & Holiday Best
Accessories: Real Red, Glorious Green & Whisper White cardstocks, Scallop Punch, CB Folder, White EP, Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon, Real Red & Glorious Green inks.

New Years is around the corner. Not sure what we might have planned (as I am typing this early and setting it to post later...) but I don't think I will be awake at midnight, with my little guy, I can't do those late nights anymore, unless he is the one keeping me awake. To all my wonderful friends and family, have a wonderful and safe New Year! Enjoy and may you have a great 2010!

Very pretty! The real red really makes it pop too. I have this set and did not use it yet. Thanks for the ideas.

Oh my goodness these trees are beautiful and you created such a pretty scene!!! Great texture! I just wanted to stop by and wish you a happy new year!

Like Dell, I too am guilty of not really using this stamp set. I really like the snow slope idea and the whisper white is so beautiful on top of the green. Gorgeous!

Love it, the trees look great. The textured look of the trees just makes the card pop.
