Lawnscaping Challenge #47

Hello everyone!  It's getting colder over here and we had wet snow and hail two days ago and more snow is expected tonight.  Living in this country, we are still cycling in the snow and on slippery roads.  How do we do that?  Sometimes, I wonder how did I survive for the past years despite falling down a few times from the bicycle and age is catching up too.....


This card was inspired by Annette - My Clever Creations by using the negative die and adding some twine on it.  Thanks, Annette you are such a great inspiration.  

As I do not have a christmas tree die-cut, I decided to use one of Lawn Fawn stamp whereby the tree is stamped onto the kraft and cut out the tree to create the negative die.  Red and white twine is sticked on a piece of paper to fit onto the shape.

As for the kraft panel, first swiped the embossing folder with snow white ink and run thru the CB to create this snowy look on the kraft.  The hat is distressed in worn lipsticks, festive berries,aged mahagony and glossy accent is added.
