Opps, I messed up. I used red instead of cranberry, but I think you will get the idea. If you decided to copy my card, just use cranberry accents. I'm still in the Christmas in August mode. So I hope you enjoy viewing my "Be Merry" Christmas card.

I started with a white quarter panel and stamped the 2 trees D3437 large snow pine in the foreground and D2418 small snow pine towards the back using a pesto Adirondack ink pad. I then made a mask for each of the snowy patches. This took a little bit of time. But I was able to save them to use again. I then used butterscotch ink and stippled color. Now stamp Be Merry UMS 7018 Sentiments 1 using cranberry ink.

Each snowy patch of the tree I applied polar white Flower Soft. Wow, I like how this turned out. To finish the card I tied a red (should be cranberry) ribbon and a small flourish.

Now it's your turn. Hop on over to Just For Fun Blog and submit your card using olive, cranberry and yellow. The stamp images do not need to be Just For Fun.
