I cased a similar card by Evelyn Wood. She used Night of Navy and I am not sure what color for the branch. I do not know how she did her snow either but I did my own thing. I cut "slopes" out of cardstock and laid them across my Whisper White layer an sponged on the top, then removed the "slope" cut outs. I sponged with Lost Lagoon. I had the beautiful Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta ribbon (#135841, $5.95 page 22) from the Stampin'Up! Holiday catalog so wanted to use those colors. I used Mossy Meadow for the branch and Lost Lagoon ink for the sentiment. My card base is Soft Sky with a layer of Lost Lagoon. I am in love with this Oramental Pine stamp set! It also is from the Holiday catalog, page 27, and available in wood or clear mount. Evelyn Wood's card is very striking in Night of Navy.
