Wonderland - Trees in the Snow - and a Pictorial

Another simple Wonderland card suitable for mass production at this time of year...
Trees under snow and in the snow and on the snow!
And a lovely glittery sparkle as well...
And seeing as it is Tuesday - so Tips, Techniques & Tutorials day - here is your step by step pictorial on how this is produced...

(1) Stamp your trees using Craft Whisper White ink. Set aside to dry...
(2) Place your Stamp A Ma Jig sheet over the top so that you can see the white image over and off to the right
(3) Ink up trees in Mossy Meadow and stamp using your Stamp A Ma Jig
Look lovely snow on your green pine trees... 
(4) Grab your Craft Whisper White ink pad again and a sponge/finger dauber...
 (5) Daub white ink under your trees...
 (6) Ink up & stamp Whisper White snowflakes ...
 
 (7) Daub Whisper White ink around the panel...
(8) Set aside to dry...best left overnight for maximum snow effect ( if the green ink is still a bit wet - the glitter tends to pick up a green tinge)

(9) Ink up & stamp Mossy Meadow greeting and mount onto crumb Cake card blank
(10) Add glue and glitter over your trees 
Tombow or Fine Tip glue plus Dazzling Diamonds the best for maximum sparkle - though Dazzling Details or 2 Way plus Dazzling Diamonds work too
Personally I am torn between my trusty Tombow (which is slightly thicker in line but that dries the most white for my snow) and the new Fine Tip Precision glue
 
Close up of those trees... shows how snow laden they are - but not the glittery effect....
This may be better...
And here are a couple of blurry photos to try to show the overall sparkle off - it is incredibly sparkly in the flesh...
 (11) Add a glue and Dazzling Diamonds snow line to the horizontal too (optional!)
 Simple but effective....
