Krafty Christmas

Hi Folks
Hope you have all had a good start to the week.  I have had a very productive day today in my crafty space.  So nice to have a full day to spend crafting.  I have been playing with some new stamps that I got from the Sincerely Yours show at Newark.  

This card features a stamp called Winter Cabin from Inkylicious.  I took the inspiration from a card that I saw on their Facebook page.  Thanks to Inkylicious for the inspiration.

I started off by creating a landscape using white ink on kraft card through a circle aperture.  Then I stamped the Winter Cabin stamp in the centre of the landscape.  To finish the scene I added some little deer stamps, some snow on the cabin and some snowflakes with a white pen.  I also went around the circle with some glitter - although this doesn't show up very well on the photo.  The dotty background paper is simply kraft card with some white dots added with a white pen.  I added the sentiment at the bottom, a ribbon bow, some pearls and some faux stitching around the square topper.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I had great fun making this card and will certainly be making some more.

What a beautiful Christmas scene you created using non-traditional colours. I love the circle and how you created a an iris shot, to use film language, to see this very pretty scene. I can see the glitter around the circle-great idea
