Talk about squeaking it in! I ran home from work (well, not really, I drove) and I quickly ran upstairs (well, not really, I had a little snack first), and then I got busy putting this together from the pieces that I had pulled out last night. The colorburst background was a failed experiment for Rachel's birthday card last week, but luckily, I seldom throw anything away (much to my family's chagrin most of the time, though we're not buried in paper yet!).
The trees are a Kottage Kutz die and the swirly snow is from Memory Box. The thing that took so long was tracing around the glitter-paper swirls and then fussy-cutting to have the white snow beneath the curls.
Yes, it does look warped in the picture from the background paper not being flattened out enough, but I'll put it between some book pages and it should settle down enough by next December to look perfect.
I took a close-up of the trees and snow hoping to show the sparkle, but not sure I achieved that.
Oh, and I added some white pearl paint (can't think of the darn name of it at the moment, so if you really want to know, leave me a comment and I'll back to you on that), to the tops of the branches of the trees.
The one thing that I did not do after our epic snow storm this weekend was take pictures of the trees full of snow, however, I think that most of it blew off before daylight anyway because it was pretty darn windy. At least that's what I'm telling myself right now for a missed opportunity for today's photo challenge prompt of TREES.
Okay, check out the rest of the "Christmas Tree Forest" at the Jingle Belles blog, why dontcha!
