I think it's fairly obvious what my inspiration is - the snowflakes, the red and the branch. I die cut a red panel and adhered it flat to the card. On the white panel (also die cut) I stamped the tree and sentiment in black. I then added a flurry of snowflakes, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with silver powder. Then I added glue to the berries on the tree and added lots of red glitter. On the inside I cut a mat layer of red card. On the white panel I stamped a simple greeting and added some more snowflakes.
I took a close up of the glitter on the tree as you can't really see just how pretty the little red berries are in the bit photo above:
I'm submitting this card to the current challenges at Inkspirational - INK#95 where the colour challenge is that anything goes with silver, and at The Paper Players - PP#270 - the team want black and white, and either silver or gold with one other colour.
Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Kylie's business - Happy Little Stampers, and the winner of the challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate.
