IO Challenge- Snowy Wishes

It might be December, but it sure doesn't feel like it here.  I can't believe it has been in the 60's and 70's.  I am happy enough picturing snowy wishes on cards rather than in person.

To make the card, I used the Winter Nightscape J7791.  The nice thing about that stamp is that you can ink it up in one color (in this case VersaFine Majestic Blue), and stamp it once.  It gives detailed trees in the front and fainter trees in the background.  Very quick and easy!

I added Christmas Wishes B14287 in the same blue ink.  For the snowflakes, I used dies from the Small Snowflake Set DIE100-F. 

The smaller snowflakes directly to the card, but for the largest snowflake, I first cut out the die:

 Then placed foam tape behind the center holes and sprinkled it with glitter:

The nice thing about doing it this way is that I could add foam tape to a detailed die and then hide that tape behind the glitter.

Funny how something that can seem so small and simple can boast such a big WOW factor but the idea of using mounting tape with glitter in it blew me away!! I don't like using glue dots! You rock, sister! Card is also stunning! Just put stamp in cart :)
