I started by masking off the bottom third of the cardstock and then started ink blending with pink, purple, and blue. If you've never ink blended on cotton cardstock, you really NEED to try it...it blends like soft butter! Next I used my Better Press and a new Press Plate (Season's Greetings Evergreens - Spellbinders) to create the tree line over the ink blending. I wish you could see this in person...the deep etching the Better Press does is SOOOOOO cool looking!
I added a black strip of cardstock to ground the top 2/3rds of the card and then finished with the pressed and die cut sentiment (comes with the set) and a few black gems (Gina K). Oh, and also did some ink splattering with white acrylic paint for snow on the top 2/3rds of the card. Another easy peasy card and also another for next years Christmas stash.
