Nothing says holidays like pine trees covered in snow with just a bit of green peeking out.  Even if you’re in a warm climate, you can still re-create that winter-y cozy feeling on a greeting card.

For today’s project, I die cut 3 trees from the Sizzix  Thinlits Woodlands die set from Tim Holtz using some dark green cardstock.

Using a Versamark ink pad, I tapped the sides of the trees in the clear ink and sprinkled white embossing powder over the edges.  I made sure not to make everything too uniform and used my finger to spread the powder around a little.

After heating the powder, you get this great, snowy look on the trees.

To create a little bit of a background for my trees, I blended some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink to the center of a white notecard and then some Fossilized Amber around it for a winter “glow”.

I adhered two of the thinner pine trees flat to the inked background using Tombow Mono Aqua glue, then the larger over the top using small foam squares.

I added a little sentiment strip from the Merry Days ephemera pack over the top to finish the card.

This “snow” technique would be great to try with other types of winter greens too.  Thanks for joining me today!
