Winter scene with Visible Image


It's 'Soozie Tooseday' again for the fabulous Visible Image

For today's creation I've made my 1st Christmas card of the year with one of my favourite Christmas stamps :D
Now the Winter scene just takes me there, it captures my imagination and looks such a lovely, homely place to be with comforting winter food waiting for you inside on a big oak table and a huge roaring open fire with the dog asleep in front of it!
I just want to be there right NOW!
What a steal at £6!!

I heat embossed the stamp with wow ebony onto white card, cut out, measured and cut into 3 sections, with a combination of fairy dust and dry glitter clear rock candy gave some dimension and texture to the snow and mounted onto black mirror board and attached with foam pads.

For the background I used the classic Gaudete background, now this stamp is a huge 14cm x 10cm for a piddly £8.99 and its stunning, just perfect for backgrounds and  I just love the font.
 I stamped this in memento tuxedo black and layered onto red mirror board with some ribbon.
Finally adding 2 red mirror board die cut snowflakes with black gems and mounted onto a 6 x 6 black card.

It's definitely put me in the mood to make some more Crimbo cards so watch this space :D
