Happy Friday before Christmas!
I hope your week is going well! Only a handful of days left until Christmas! Are you ready? neither. Still waiting on a few gifts I ordered a few weeks ago. Sheesh! They should have known I need them here like...NOW! Oh well. I may be making some IOU tags to put in the boxes if they don't get here soon. 

 Don't know about you, but I love making navy or blue and white winter cards. And the last week or so, I'm really stuck a bit on the navy/white theme. This card seemed simple in my head. It took a bit more, but it really wasn't a time drain. I stamped the snow tree w/ fence on white, added a hint of color and shadows w/ some very light cool gray and a snow green Copic markers, then cut around the top edge. When I got to the tree, I left only a very small portion of the right side of the trunk. On a larger navy blue piece, I lined up where the tree would be and stamped it again w/ the popcorn white ink. I added a bit more white (for snow) on the tree with a white gel pen. I used a small die cut circle for the moon and stamped just a few of the branches w/ black. The snow was stamped using the spatter background and the popcorn ink. I added a bit of the same splatter bg on the white part using the lt blue ink. The first two lines of the greeting were added in lower left. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the DRS Thursday Challenge...Three's Company! Just use 3 of something or stamp 1 thing 3 times. Have a great weekend and a very Merry Christmas!

What an awesome card Julie! I actually thought you had cut out the whole tree - which would be crazy of course, but if anyone could it would be you :)

I can't wait to see this one in person!

Oh my! Look at those faint shadows on the snow. A true work of art. I could look for quite a while at this peaceful card, Julie! Merry Christmas!
