Winter Farm

Morning all. 
I have a Christmas card to share with you today, the plan went astray last week and I didn't manage to get one done. Never mind !! With several challenges in mind I decided not to do any colouring and raided my Christmas hamper for inspiration. This is what happened...



The stamp is called Winter farm by Serendipity Stamps. I heat embossed the image with silver embossing powder and then squished it in some spritzed tumbled glass inkiness on my craft mat. While armed with my heat gun I also used some sparkly embossing powder on my die cut fir branch. Silver mirri board mats,
 seam binding and some gems to finish. Sadly the shine and sparkle isn't really apparent, I blame the dull weather and not my photography skills!!

the inspiration came from these challenges

Holly Jolly - Winter Scene
Jingle Belles - Foliage
Christmas at Sweet Stampin - Brrr it's cold outside
ABC Christmas Challenge - F for Friends and Family
Completely Christmas #3 - Anything Goes

Off to prepare dinner now...curry I think!!

thanks for stopping by and see you soon xx

  6. Fab card, it's nice to see something a bit different Sarah. I had a little play with the heat embossing at the W/E with my Granddaughter, she was amazed.
