Happy Christmas from the Snow Drifts

After many weeks of thinking I must get started, I finally made my first Christmas card! For my first card I couldn’t resist playing with this cute car with Christmas tree image that my friend Linda sent me.

Merry Christmas from the Snow Drifts

Stamps (Hero Arts) - Stunning Snowflakes, Car With Tree and Celebrate Everyday

For the background, I white embossed white card with the snowflakes, applied distress inks (broken china & faded jeans) and spritzed lightly with water. The embossed snow drifts are on foam adhesive pads for dimension and are topped with diamond stickles. I coloured the car and tree with ProMarkers & watercolour pencils and coated the car with Glossy Accents. It’s questionable whether anyone would be going through snow drifts with a fully decorated Christmas tree on top of their car, but that’s one of the great things about card making, anything is possible, lol! The sentiment is stamped with barn door distress ink.

I’m submitting the card into Lily Pad Cards Bling Challenge

I am new to your blog, Heather, and am finding so much inspiration here! I like how you used the embossed snowflakes as the hills for the car.
