For my sample, I chose to use the darling Season's Greetings stamp set!
Creative Nugget: The Tree Background was stamped in brown ink on a Neenah Solar White panel then shifted slightly, stamped again with VersaMark ink and white embossed to look like snow. Distress inks were sponged around the edges and again across the bottom to create a few snow drifts. A Darice embossing folder was used to create some snowy texture on the panel and white acrylic paint splatters added. One of the Hillside Edges Dies were used to cut a hillside out of vellum on which the sentiment was embossed. This was mounted to the bottom of the card and a Fence die cut added. The images from the Season's Greetings stamp set were colored with Copic Markers, cut with the matching Season's Greeting Die Set, and popped onto the card. The two smaller birdhouses were tied to the tree branch with metallic thread.
Here are the SNSS products used to make this card:
