Collecting the Tree

I have another Lili of the Valley card to share with you today, very different from the ones I usually make. Somehow this stamp called 'Collecting the Tree' got cut out and glued onto this Memory Box paper without too much thought on my part. I guess as I'm digging through my stash of paper, I caught a glimpse of this snowy hill DP and immediately the idea blossomed into this card. I wish all my projects were as easy as this!

I also used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch to create this decorative border at the bottom of the card. I have been on the lookout for an awesome snowflake border punch for a very long time, and haven't found an exceptional one yet! So I came up with my own. I simply cut the snowflakes in half and glued them to the back side of a strip of cardstock.
(Psssst! If you have an awesome snowflake border punch or know where I could get one, leave me a comment about it! Thanks!)

Hope you like it , thanks for visiting!
