Snowy Delicate Pine

Hello friends.


I had a play with my new Memory box Delicate Pine Frame.

You may have noticed that I love frames on my cards.

This die has two frames.  Double the fun!

I've cut the smaller frame with the tree attached from some Neenah cardstock.

Then I cut the larger frame from another piece of Neenah cardstock.

 I've adhered a piece of Brusho background behind the tree frame and put some
Sparkle Texture Paste, (a birthday present from my dear friend, Loll) over my 
Falling Snow Stencil to give the appearance of a wintry day.

When the paste was dry, I laid it all back in the negative space.

I was amazed at how the second frame stepped up the card, so I glued that on top.

The little birds come with the die.  I've put the three on the card front
and the other two on the inside with the sentiment.

Challenges:




Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Oh Bonnie, how stunning this card is! I love those frames too, how cool that this one comes with two frames. Your tree looks so frost and beautiful, love the birds on it. I also love the brusho background. I need to get my brusho's out and have a play. I'm in the mood since I was playing around with the splash watercoloring backgrounds. lol I bet it feels great to have another Christmas card in the stash as it is literally just around the corner. sigh, I know, we will just keep that quiet. lol Hugs, Brenda

This double frame is incredibly creative. I love her, she looks like a picture in an antique frame, so richly carved. WOW! I need to try something like that someday. Thank you for the amazing idea. I must also add that your background looks stunning, so beautifully exposes a white tree and red cardinals. I love this card.
