Newton's Nook Designs Fox Hollow

Hi everyone, I hope you're all doing well.  It's getting chilly out, even here in South Carolina!  I honestly feel good about making winter cards finally and I don't need to crank up the A/C!

I'm still not over these birch trees from the Forest Scene Builder Die Set, by Newton's Nook Designs. In fact I've got a bunch of them cut out and sitting on my work space, because I know I'll be using them on many winter cards. Do you do that?  When you love a product, do you produce a bunch of them, for use anytime?

Birch trees are my favorite tree, we had a beautiful grove of them on our family farm in Wisconsin when I was growing up, they were always stunning this time of year with the golden leaves and bright white bark in the sunshine! So creating this card sort of reminded me of those days. 

So onto my card finally!  I took a light turquoise piece of cardstock, heat embossed in white the pretty snowflakes, then distress inked around the edges of my cardstock, working in with darker blues. I left the original color of the background at the base of the card and mostly in the center.

I love the images from the stamp/die set Fox Hollow.  I die cut and colored the fox and a few winter hats, then Copic colored the images. I stamped the sentiment 'Peace on Earth', which I thought was perfect for this scene.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
