Dreaming of a White Christmas

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I would like to thank  my new followers for joining me on my crafty journey. I hope everyone is having a good week. The weather here has been very pleasant I hope it has been the same for you.

After my play on Sunday with my new Visible Image stamps, making the CAS Christmas cards, I fancied making something  a little more complex with the White Christmas stamp set.

This is an A5 card I don't often make these. I started by making all the layers you know me and layers. Then I created a background using the Snowflake stamp with Perfect Medium and silver, white and iridescent embossing powders. The background was finished with three shades of Distress ink. 

To make the focal element I stamped a single snowflake with Perfect Medium and embossed it with silver powder. 

The ribbon was in my stash. The sentiment comes in the stamp set and it was stamped with Perfect Medium and embossed it with silver powder. 

I hope the rest of the week is kind to you.

I would like to join in with Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 193
