Silent Night in Threes

Whew! It's amazing how time slips away from me. I've been wanting to play along with the Jingle Belles latest challenge and just realized it closes this Weds so I got to work on a card.

This week the challenge is to create in multiple of three...3 circles, 3 reindeer's, 3 ribbons......anything like that as long as there is three. This stamp set from SU immediately popped into my head because it's one of my favorite images and it has 3 trees, perfect to use for this challenge!!

Here in southcentral Alaska our trees have lost their luster and some leaves are already starting to change. Fall is on it's way but I've definitely got winter on my mind. Today's card was inspired by my favorite thing....dark snowy nights.

I love to sit out on my porch at night when it's snowing and watch the flakes fall around the landscape. We have woods around us and there is just something magical to me about watching the snow fall and dance upon the branches of the trees. It's something that never gets old to me!

I wanted the 3 threes to be the highlight of the card so I decided to heat emboss them in white, and then I took a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set and stamped it to look like big snowflakes falling down around the trees. I added the simple sentiment at the top of the card and stamped it in red just to give a pop of color against the black and white. The picture really doesn't do the card justice, it is so pretty and serene in person!

Stamps: Wonderland, Gorgeous Grunge (both SU)
Paper: Basic Black, Neenah Solar White
Ink: Versamark, Real Red, White Craft Ink (all SU)
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Cuttlebug, MFT Die-Namics 20
