Winter Post

I'm still in Christmas card mode! This in one of my favorite Christmas sets called "Winter Post".  The image of the skaters is pretty, but it also has a variety of other images as well. I am going through some of last years card to use as inspiration for the upcoming 'Christmas in July' class.  I am certainly not going to be inspired by my surroundings, its supposed to get to 94 degrees today.  I made this card for a Christmas card swap I was in last year.  I had to make 25 of them. That was a lot of coloring and embossing but I was happy with the results.  I cut a piece of very vanilla cardstock into a tag and stamped the skaters image on it.  Next I used blender pens to softly color the image.  I randomly embossed snowflakes snowflakes onto the real red card base.  I wanted it to have a vintage feel, so I sponged ink on all the pieces, and tore the base layers and added a piece of  Newsprint DSP for an added layer.   It doesn't show up in the picture but there is a very small amount of dazzling diamonds glitter on the ice, and a bit on the woman's hat and gloves.   Hope you like it : )
