Mucho thanks to my friend Shelly for giving me a couple sheets of kraft glassine a while ago. I didn't have the Holly Branch die that he used, so I used the smaller holly leaves from the Festive Greenery die. Needless to say I had to use more than four leaves.
Also, I initially tried to draw some branches onto chipboard because I don't have the Holly Branch die, but then it occurred to me that I have actual trees in my yard and, therefore, actual sticks. So at 6 a.m. this morning I put on my shoes to go outside and was delighted to see that there was snow everywhere! I had to clean the snow off my stick so that I could paint some fake snow on there.
The stamp that I used is by Anna Griffin, and the really fun new technique I learned this morning is fraying the ends of lace. Yeah, the kraft glassine was okay, too, but I will probably use the frayed lace more often.
