Snow Falling on a Tree Card

I ended up making this card last night. I love the way the snowflakes look on the Kraft card stock!



Goodies:
All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Season of Friendship set; Best Wishes and More set
Ink: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red Classic inks; Whisper White Craft ink
Paper: Kraft, Confetti, Baja Breeze card stock
Other: Chocolate Chips wide grosgrain ribbon, Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon, piercing kit, Distressing tool

I started the card by stamping the base paper. I kept the Baja Breeze snowflakes pretty light by stamping off onto my scratch paper first. Then I followed them with the smaller, white snowflakes. I cut the snowy areas out freehand and inked them with Baja Breeze. Next, I stamped the tree and the bird and cut them out, leaving a small boarder around them. I added them to the card front with a little adhesive and a Dimensional under the bird. I then worked on the bottom element. The Baja Breeze strip has been pierced and distressed. I added the wide Chocolate ribbon and the red on top. After adding it to the card, I think it looks pretty good! I wanted to put a sentiment on the card but couldn't find the right place for it... I decided to add it to the inside instead!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I am definitely looking forward to it!!
