PBSC December - Winter or Christmas!

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...the theme this month is:

'Winter or Christmas'

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:

Prize - a $20 voucher!

I used my 'Before the Snow' stamp to create a couple of simple wintry cards. I inked the stamp using various shades of green Distress Ink (Forest Moss, Peeled Paint & Pine Needles), then spritzed it with a little water, before stamping directly on to some kraft card blanks. I dotted some Versamark Ink over the trees, then heat embossed it using 'Sparkling Snow' embossing powder by WOW. I cut the 'snow drifts' from an offcut of white card using one of my 'Stitched Hillside Border' dies (by Lawn Fawn), and added a sentiment from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
