Snowflake Framed Christmas Tree Card

I used the extra snowflake stamps which come with the Clarity Charity Trees stamp set to create a frame and a border for this Christmas card.
Die cut a topper from Clarity stencil card using the largest nested rectangles die (6” x 5”) and a mat from black card using the corresponding nested rectangles picot die.
Add the snowflake corner from the Clarity Charity Trees stamp set into all four corners of the topper in Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide.
Complete the frame using some of the individual snowflakes from the same set in the same ink.
Add the largest Charity Tree into the centre in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink.
Add further snowflakes from the same stamp set around the tree, this time using Broken China Distress Oxide.
Create a vignette round the edges in Tumbled Glass Distress ink and a Clarity stencil brush.
Mat up the topper and add it to the left-hand side of a 7” x 7” white card blank.
Mask off a narrow strip down the right-hand side of the card.
Brush Tumbled Glass Distress ink into the aperture, then add snowflakes in Tumbled Glass Oxide, Broken China Oxide and Nocturne Versafine Clair ink.
To finish, remove the masks and add squiggly lines down both sides of the border using a micron pen.
