Winter Treescape

Another Christmas card from me today...this time using some dies and snippets of Core'dinations's from one of the Tim Holtz packs, and has a 'shattered' effect on the surface. I used one of my circle Nesties to cut (!) then Hero arts dies for the trees, and Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Hillside' border dies for the snow drifts. I embossed the background using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder to look like falling snow. To add a bit of definition, I sanded the edges, and over the raised embossing to reveal the kraft core. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous.
