This card was inspired by the Nutty or Nice? stamp set from Lawn Fawn that was exclusively released from Simon Says Stamp during Stamptember. It took a while before I received my order, and this is the first card I made using the new set. The idea evolved from the sketch - I transformed the scallop border in a branch to divide the two card sections and instead of the flower, I added the squirrel running on the branch. I hung the ornaments from the branch, and I decided to use the Jack Frost stencil from Echo Park to add snow snow drifts at the top, using Lawn Fawn's white textured embossing powder. While I love how the stencil pattern looks embossed with the textured powder, I'm not sure if the pattern adds to the card design or detracts from it. Either way, while there's nothing wrong with this card per se, it's just not my favorite I've ever made.
The tag was something that was lying on my desk and that was the right shade of green to be added to my card. A piece of Lemon Lime Twist ribbon was added to it to match the color combo. Gems and pearls were used to embellish the ornaments, and I also added clear gems in the sky between snow drifts.
