Merry & Bright

Welcome to the December Unity Stamps blog hop.

I finally started working on a few Christmas cards.

I used Unity's A Joyous Season kit.
I stamped and masked the trees, embossed the snowflakes, and blended distress inks for the background. Then sprinkled some water and white spray ink.

I decided to use some distress grit-paste for the snow hills
And then finished up with some twine.



Here's the rest of the hop order:


Thanks for stopping by today!

Love how you did the snow. I think the background is wonderful, haven’t seen this stamp set so it looks like you paper pieced the trees. Great card
