Mercy Snow by Tiffany Baker

I recently read Mercy Snow by Tiffany Baker.  It is a mystery story that takes place in a small lumber town in the New England area.  The book had so many layers:  the mystery of who caused a fatal bus accident, the history of the lumber business, family dysfunction, and a little bit of supernatural.  I thoroughly enjoyed the book, but the ending made me say “Whaaat!”

Here’s the card I made that was inspired by the book.  It focuses on the Waterfront stamp set.

Waterfront - Woodland Embossing Folder - Kristin Willberg - K's Kards - Stampin' Up!

I wanted to symbolize the multiple layers of the book.  To do this, I used a 6×6 piece of Whisper White paper and embossed the trees using the Woodland embossing folder.  I then stamped the river from Waterfront in Night of Navy and Blue Bayou.  The trees were stamped in Garden Green and Old Olive.  I used the stamping daubers to add a little Old Olive and Blue Bayou to the scenery.  I think it highlights the embossing.

The base layer is Garden Green card stock with Garden Green pine trees randomly situated.  The gray layer is Basic Gray card stock and ink.  I used a retired punch to punch out the sentiment from Waterfront.  I used some decorative brads to add a little “oomph” to the label.  The label has also been embossed (it was a scrap).

I am planning to “saw’ through another book and “chop” down a few more cards.  See you soon!
