Winter Wishes

I'm joining in on the fun over at Viva La Verve!  I used November's Week 2 design, as well as the rustic inspiration for the Inspiration Challenge.

To go along with the sentiment I chose for this card, I thought that using white embossing paste would add a winter-y element, as the texture reminds me of packed snow. I also added clear sequins to mimic falling snowflakes.  The stamped image and sentiment were heat embossed using snow white embossing powder, and then I added some Stickles to the Christmas tree. I chose blue vellum for the banner to allow the background to show through.
For the rustic element, I distressed the edges, and used some hemp ribbon and twine.

Stamps: Verve 'Holiday Greetings'
Paper: Recollections shimmered and matte blue cardstock; CTMH Patterned, Vanilla
Other: Cuttlebug; Spellbinders scalloped circle die; Rangers Texture Paste, Stickles; Color Box Chevron Stencil; CTMH Buttons, ribbon, twine, Chocolate Distressing Ink; Verve Shine Bright Sequins
