Rustic Christmas

Today I am showcasing the fabulous SNOWY WOODS plate from Artistic Outpost to create a rustic Christmas card.
I began by die cutting a tag from kraft card and then adding embossing paste through the Holiday Knit Layering Stencil and allowing to dry and then applying Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges to add a little warmth to the design.
'CHRISTMAS' has also been added again applying embossing paste through a Christmas stencil and adding Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges. I stamped the focal image onto white card and then coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then flicked water onto the background to give a distressed feel.
A snowflake garland trim has been added to the bottom of my image to add further interest, I love adding different layers and textures to my designs.
I also included two dimensional flowers and added Gesso to the edges of the petals to give a snowy feel to the design. I also included a mini tag stamped with the 'snowy' sentiment from the same stamp plate. For the finishing touches I added natural twine and a Christmas token.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.
