Winter is approaching rapidly. Before you notice, it's time to send the Christmas cards. I made a Winter card in blue tones.
Image and sentiment are from Sleigh Ride stamp set #744. Both are stamped with Versamark ink. Image is heat embossed with Black Magic and sentiment with Satin Velvet embossing powders. It is die cut by using Star die from Marianne Design. I inked the background with Memento Summer Sky ink while it was still in the die. I used Sakura Glue Pen to draw a frame around the inked star and added Bridal glitter on top.
I covered sleigh and the horse with Dimensional Glue to give them a raised glossy look.
For the decorative matting layer I used Sticker Paper and die from same Star set. Sticker Paper is covered with Blue Raven glitter.
Flourishes are die cut out of Sticker Paper. I used MemoryBox Flowering Christmas Tree die. Tree was covered with Blue Raven glitter and cut in pieces. Little embellishments was cut from Mon Ami Gabby Silver Diamond Mesh.
Snowflake border is also die cut out of Sticker Paper. I used die from Joy Crafts - Border with Ice Crystals. It is covered with Bridal glitter.Dots on the background paper are covered with Brushable Glue and Bridal glitter.
I adhered 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape to the edges of the matting layer and covered it with Blue Raven glitter.
