In this photo it is difficult to tell (gray days in Florida for the last week, and more to come!), but the tree, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, is inked with white gel-pen snow in the crooks of its branches...the image was cut, embossed, and matted with Nestabilities circles. The sentiment was inked with a marker (omitting some words, inking only a portion). All of the paper edges were inked with Tim Holtz distress ink. I added a layered pair of glittering MS snowflakes, a Basic Grey transparent button, a velvet bow, a single tiny dew drop, and a small punched heart.
I think this card would be the perfect pairing with a warm loaf of nut bread or some yummy cookies fresh from the oven! Here's my mom's tasty recipe for Chocolate Peanutters! These are SO good!
