PP169: Greetings of the Season

Yippee! Yesterday, I finished making and addressing all my Halloween cards and gifts that I send to my family (and now my son in college) and am now moving onto Christmas themed projects.: )  After teaching Sunday School, picking up trash in the ditches for Youth Group fundraising, and taking my little dog, Riley out for a well deserved walk on this beautiful day...I headed to my stamping room while my 2 children did their homework.  With a coffee in hand (homemade mocha) and Christmas music playing in the background....I found a fun sketch to follow at Paper Players. : )  A stampers life doesn't get much better than that, right???  Here's the sketch:
And here's what I made:
 The Winter Frost Specialty DSP is awesome!  Very trendy, cool colors to work with!
 I stamped the tree in Island Indigo ink onto Smoky Slate card stock and hand cut it out.  When the card was completely assembled, I added glue dots using my Multipurpose Liquid Glue and sprinkled Silver Stampin' Glitter over it.  I used my small Oval punch (retired) to make the cute little bow.  It's hard to see, but I also used the Stylish Stripes Embossing folder on the white piece of card stock.  I love how this folder makes a clean, yet stylish background- hence the name! : )
