NOEL

I've used the SNOWY WOODS plate from Artistic Outpost this week to get a head start on my Christmas cards.
The background of my card has been embossed and sanded to highlight the texture and I have added gilding wax to the edges.
I die cut three stars from white card and coloured with Distress Inks broken china, chipped sapphire and touches of brushed pewter Distress Stain.
Wooden stars have been added for touches of dimension and texture and I have added touches of white to the images with a white pencil crayon. I have die cut a poinsettia from white card and added to the top of my card for further interest.
"joyeux noel" has been added to the smaller star again colouring with Distress Inks and brushed pewter Distress Stain.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Amazing how your cards always look like a piece of art to hang, not just a card, thanks for sharing how you created it and for sharing the card..

Love the sanded embossing, and the finish on the Father Christmas stars is amazing.
