Snow Falls Softly...

"The snow falls softly, quietly...And winter beauty fills the air..." (Northwoods Rubber Stamps). Yes, it is Christmas in July at Splitcoaststamper's Way to Use It Challenge! Perfect for using my new Polar White Flower Soft!

I began with a base of PaperTrey Ink's Pure Poppy cardstock, layering it with Stampin' Up's Patterns Pack II papers. The white paper in the design is from PaperTrey Ink as well: Stamper's Select White.

I stamped the panel beneath the image oval with SU's Weathered background (retired), then corner rounded all of the top corners (SU Corner Rounder Punch).

The Northwoods image is stamped on the PTI cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with numerous Copic markers. After die cutting the panel with a Spellbinder Oval die, I sprinkly Polar White Flower Soft over the snowy areas of the scene. FS Polar White will be available July 24th, along with some adorable card toppers and a fabulous Fall Flower Soft color!

Quick and easy...Christmas in July!
