One More For Beate's Sketch Challenge!

Okay, this is the last one - I promise! I just love this sketch from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge!

For this Christmas card, I used the Wintergreen designer paper for the circle and adhered it to a Soft Sky card base.

I stamped the tree from Lovely as a Tree in Always Artichoke on Soft Sky cs. I matted that with Mellow Moss cs. For the snow, I used Tulip brand puffy paint (it's actually a fabric paint). I put a little bit on all the branches (it goes on really nicely because it has a very fine tip). Then I used my heat tool and heated the paint. That's what makes it puff up like popcorn! It's very fun to watch!

I stamped the greeting from Greetings Galore in Always Artichoke.

And now I need to try something that doesn't use this layout! Thanks for reading!
