Here I am again with another Christmas post (Sorry, I know we're only just getting used to 20 degree heat and a little bit of sunshine!) - I've been making a winter scene in a frame today, though I've just got around to finishing it off!
Sorry for the poor lighting, my camera's not great in the evening so this is instagrammed.
I've used papers from the Christmas Essentials CD which is just £5 and the Bare Trees stamp set which is £3.
I printed out some navy blue plain backing paper and distressed the edges with Faded Jeans distress ink, placed the square inside my frame (which is taken from the Templates & More CD). I added dots in the corner of the aperture so that my stamped trees would be in clear view.
I took out the square of navy paper and stamped the large and small tree side by side in clear Versamark and embossed with WOW! powder (Silver).
I then ripped two 'hills' out of paper, edged them with cool gray 1 pro-marker (along the ripped edge) and added glitter. These were then overlapped, just below the trees to give the effect that the trees are surrounded by snowy hills!
I used the snowflake from the Berry Wreath stamp set to decorate the edges of the navy paper, stamping it in Faded Jeans and adding a silver gem in the centre of each snowflake (close up below - sorry for the poor picture again!)
I added rock candy glitter to the branches on the trees and a little bit of glamour dust dotted in the sky for stars.
I secured the navy paper inside the frame and glued up the sides, adding strips of backing paper to the outside and to the top of the frame.
I've added some pearl trim similarly to garlands around the top and bottom of the frame, and used the flower set (1) shape (also available on the Christmas Essentials CD) to make poinsettias in opposite corners.
I finally used the sentiment stamp (from Bare Trees stamp set) to make two flags in the lower corner.
Hope you like it!
