Miles to Go

Santa may have miles to go, but our time 'til Christmas is getting shorter and shorter.  Linda here with another Christmas card this week.  I was reminded this week that I haven't had my On-the-Edge Treeline die out this holiday season.  It's a definite favorite for Christmas crafting, as is the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods stamp set.  

I started with white card stock and stamped the evergreen bough along the right edge with Library Green archival ink.   Then Tim Holtz texture paste was applied through his Speckles stencil and while wet, sprinkled with Clear Rock Candy distress glitter.   When everything was dry, I gave it a quick misting of Brushed Pewter Distress Spray Stain.  

The Santa panel and the tag were stamped with Watering Can archival ink.  The trees were sponged with Pine Needles plus had a coating of Clear Rock Candy distress glitter.  I wanted a divider panel between the evergreen bough and the main scene so used Tim Holtz Industrious Borders.   

My acrylic snowflake is the littlest one from the Stacked Snowflake die.  I sponged with with Brushed Pewter stain and topped it with a Mirrored Star.  The tag was cut with the Tiny Tabs and Tags die and also topped off with a Mirrored Star.  

That's it for this week.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope your Christmas preparations are going well.
