Here's a snowy winter scene using stamps from the Classic Christmas Collection from Heartfelt Creations, and some "Sparkly Fluff" I found in a bargain basket at a local store. It's kind of fun for snow (but there was a lot of white stuff sticking to everything!). I used the tree images from the Magnificent Spruce Trees set to make a Christmas scene, but they are so versatile - they'd be great for a lake scene or any serene nature view.

GREEN MAT LAYER
Cut a piece of dark green cardstock measuring 4 7/8" x 6 7/8". Punch one long edge with the edge punch. Stamp the small cluster of trees in matching dark green ink across the layer. Use the glue pen to line branches and the ground line of the trees, and cover with the Sparkly fluff - press it down, then shake off the excess.
Ink the large tree using Versamark ink then dark green ink, and stamp on dark green paper. Emboss with clear embossing powder. Trim it closely. Use the glue pen to line branches and the ground line of the tree, and cover with the Sparkly fluff - press it down, then shake off the excess. Attach the hot-fix jewels randomly around the tree. Mount the large tree on the front of the card with foam squares.
Stamp the sentiment in dark green ink on white paper. Trim it closely. Glue it onto the small piece of red cardstock, and trim it, too. Glue this in the upper left corner of the card front.
