Remember when you were a kid and you had to make your own snowflakes with paper and scissors instead of a punch or die. Well, I had no punch or die for this so I had to go old school. Same with the trees. The snowflake is covered in MS glitter, the trees are covered in Flowersoft. There is white mulberry for snow at the bottom and some bling for falling snow. The senti is unknown SU.
Thanks for Looking!!

Jamie, your "old school" card is cool!! I love the silvery snowflake and your snow covered trees!! With all the heat that's across the nation, wouldn't an icicle be a nice treat! I love the juxtaposition of the cool card and the warm stamp!

There's nothing wrong with old school!! I think we can get too caught up with all the modern fancy things.
Your write-up reminds me of one of the Peanuts films, when Charlie Brown (of course) is having a terrible time cutting something (could be a heart, it might be the Valentines show), and Snoopy turns out a virtuoso one.
The mulberry tissue makes a great snowy foreground, I must think of that!! You're on a roll with your Christmas cards, aren't you :D.

How clever AND resourceful! What did we do before we "had a tool for that"?...exactly...we made it with our own hands! Awesome blingy snowflake and lovely snow covered trees~ Great job with the challenge!
