Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop: Winter Hills

It's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge. 
This is my second card for this month's blog hop. 
I've been busy making Christmas/Holiday cards, so this 
challenge really pushed me to make another card using  
SNOWFLAKES (this month's theme).

* Winter Hills is the perfect stamp for a Holiday card. I stamped the rectangular scene with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with copic markers. A clear Gelly Roll pen was used to accent the snowy hills, the outside frame and some 'snow dots' in the sky. The image was cut around the frame and then mounted onto a piece of black card stock. 

* A piece of white card stock was partially cut with the Tag Sale #8 die, stopping before the top. I used an exacto knife to finish cutting the edges to create a longer panel. Polka Dot Basics was stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with silver EP. The framed image was glued to this panel.
* The card base was stamped with a sentiment (Holiday Wishes; Versafine Black Onyx) and then impressed with the Linen/Canvas Impression Plate, before attaching the finished focal panel.

* Fancy Flakes die was cut from white card stock and sponged with Aqua Mist and Tropical Teal inks. The star was heat embossed with silver EP.
