Warm Winter Wishes

I do like the way this turned out - kind of simple. It came together pretty  easily with just a little refresher video on emboss resist from StampTV.
I used the snowflake embossing folder on the Little Boy Blue pane. as a background. On the white I first stamped the snowflakes in blue. Then I stamped the tree with Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I stamped the nest, bird and squirrel on it before using a sponge dauber to go around the tree. 

This is a fun and easy technique!
