Another Blue and White

This is the second blue and white Christmas Card i've made lately and I wanted to combine it with another challenge to make a stepper card which made it slightly more difficulty.  I'm not really a stepper card kind of crafter and as i'm trying to challenge myself with different card bases I decided to give it a go. Once i'd decided what to use it was pretty straight forward (my problem is I can never decide what to use lol). I found the base in my box and went delving through my stash for stuff to use.  The Snow was my first choice and as it went well with the Blue and White theme it was easy.  Then I decided on trees as I needed some height behind the snow to balance it. The rest as they say was easy (well the saying is history but doesn't really work lol).  The background card in blue and white came from my scrap box (and yes i do try to use up as many scraps as possible before getting any new) and also the white card for the trees.  I then found a blue piece to match in my card box.  I simply cut 3 sizes of trees out with my Crafters Companion Christmas Tree die and layered them onto my card. I ran some blue and white ribbon and lace along the bottom before sticking my snow sign on.  To finish I added some blue half pearls. Quite a quick one once you make your choices.  I do hope you like and plz let me know. Thanks Jacqui
