Branch Out Winter

I created this card for a thank you note for my brother-in-law's mother who is always very kind to send us a gift at Christmas.

First, I sponged Night Navy Ink from a stamp pad on to Whisper White card stock using a circle mask for the moon and a scrap piece of paper for the snow. I coloured the moon with Barely Banana pastel, which you can't really see in the picture. The snow on the tree branches was created with a white gel pen.

I punched three holes side by side on the panel with my Crop-A-Dile to make the hole for the ribbon to go through because a punch wouldn't go through three layers of card stock. I put the ribbon around the card, through the panel and tied the knot before I used two-sided tape to adhere the panel. That way there wasn't a hole on the inside of the card.

Happy New Year!
