Instructions: Cut white cardstock to 9 1/2 x 5 3/4", score and fold at 4 3/4". Use the aspen tree from Woodsy Winterscapes stamp set to create a light pattern on top left and bottom right of card base. Stamp only the edges of tree leaves in Manganese Blue several times for visual interest. Use a hydra sponge to lightly add some Vivid Chartreuse on card base, leaving corners white. Also use the Manganese Blue to repeat the same. Dab some Dries Clear glue onto sponge and apply over colored area, then sprinkle with Frosting powder and heat set. This will create a beautiful background for snowglobe.
