 As always, I love stamping this style of background with Distress Oxide.

From top to down, you can see that I started with Salvaged PatinaCrushed Olive, Rustic Wilderness, and Cracked Pistachio.

With the Distress Oxide, I like to add a layer of clear-embossing once I finished stamping the background.

To make the entire design pop, I matted a piece of black cardstock with the help of Nestabilities Dies (Set A and Set B) . I can not recommend these two basic dies enough. They are the arsenal that make designs a stand-out. I hope you enjoy seeing this wintery card in the midst of summer. is offering FREE with Purchase of $25 or more:Pink Fresh Coverplate Die Mosaic.

The Distress Oxide colors used look really pretty together. You highlight the fact that we don’t have to just use dark greens for the holidays. Lovely card!

I was out of comission having surgery and recovery. Missed viewing all your gorgeous creations. I love the mix of oxide inks for wintry background.
