Vintage Winter Post

Here's a card I made using my favorite Christmas Stamp Set, “Winter Post”. The color combo is Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Natural Ivory.

First, I stamped the skaters in Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink and used my blender pen to color in the hat and sweater. I punched the image out using the 2-1/2” Circle Punch. The Merry Christmas saying is from the “Bells & Boughs” Stamp Set. The mat behind the skaters is embossed using the New “Snow Burst” - Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The main Layer is embossed using the “Northern Flurry” Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and lightly sponged using Soft Suede Classic Ink to make the snowflakes pop. Finally, I used an Antique Brad to attach the bow to the card.  I did spray some Homemade Shimmer Mist made with the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint onto the card.

Let me know what you think.
Thanks for looking,
