This card is for this week’s challenge at Muse. I’ve taken a literal view on Laurie Willison’s beautiful inspiration card, which has lots of white space.
Here is the photo of Laurie’s card:
Here is my card:
I used my Simon Says Stamp 'Be’ die, then, I stamped, embossed and fussy cut the tree from my Hero Arts ‘Get Merry’ stamp set and created a stencil with clear acetate and a small snowflake die to create texture with embossing paste.
Here is a close-up of the snowflakes:
*** Heads up for anyone looking to buy a new PC/Laptop:
I really ‘Love’ the ampersand that Laurie used on her card, and set out to buy it in the Silhouette store. Unfortunately, my old Silhouette is not compatible with Windows 8 which is the operating system on my new computer :-(
I also wanted to mention that I can’t use my old scanner with Windows 8 as well, even though everything was manufactured by HP...Let the buyer beware!
I am also submitting this card for the 2013 Caring Hearts Card Drive ~ It's a really wonderful cause, and I hope you'll consider joining us!
Well, that’s it for me. I hope everyone is having a great day, and thanks so much for stopping by!
