Yuletide Greetings

Time for another seasonal creation, a Christmas card using the fabulous MidWinter plate from Artistic Outpost.
I am trying to be organised completing at least one Christmas card per week, preventing any last minute rush, well that's the plan! This card began with a snowflake stencil which I sponged through with broken china ink, adding faded jeans to the edges for dimension.
I cut a circle using a Spellbinders die and stamped the scenic image with black archival ink, sponging with broken china ink. The sentiment Yuletide Greetings has been added to one edge of my circle. I have added three wooden snowflakes for further dimension and interest, including silver gems to the centre for a little bling.  The reindeer has been stamped onto white card and coloured with Distress Ink vintage photo, cut out and added to my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Lovely snowflake stencilling, and your fussy cut reindeer is gorgeous. I was so happy to get these as my prize package for July, but can't bear to admit summer is leaving, so haven't played yet!!
