It certainly doesn't feel much like Christmas yet as we are still enjoying all the colours of Autumn at my beloved local ponds.
I know that in past years you have enjoyed seeing my process of how I make these cards so here goes. I chose to play with my Visible Image Winter wonderland set of stamps. This is such a great set for creating Winter scenes.
I decided to use Wendy Vecchi gold embossing paste and my Tim Holtz star stencil for creating my starry sky.
I forgot to photograph the next part but I used green DIs to create a forest floor at the bottom of the card. I then stamped 2 of the largest Visible Image trees in the background.
I stamped a third tree using 2 colours of green archival ink and vaguely fussy cut it out.
Below here is my finished card. You can see that I added the Visible Image Go to Christmas words "from our home to yours" which I also embossed. I added a couple of Cheery Lynn snowflakes to finish everything off. I mounted my piece on a gold card blank, all ready for Dotty's. I am making these in 2s and I will share my other version at some point.
Ho Ho Ho!!
