Winter Wonderland

Hello everyone hope all is well in your world. Today I am showing a vintage card using  a wonderful stamp from  the Crafty Individuals range. CI 399 'Winter Wonderland.

I used Centura Pearl cardstock for the card base in a gold. I then embossed onto cream card using the  Vintage embossing folder from Crafter's Companion range. I added some pearl gilding wax to highlight the Vintage words. Next I stamped the beautiful Winter Wonder CI 399 stamp with black Archival ink, and used a little stickles to highlight the gorgeous little snowflakes.
I cut out a shape from a spellbinder die and backed it with a lovely burgandy colour. I added a further piece of card  in ivory as a mat along with the vintage piece embossed mat and distressed them around all the edges, curled them and added a little  Distress ink in Fired Brick. I  assembled it all and added a bow in gold organza ribbon, along with a few berries and leaves. The final piece was to add a sentiment of Season's Greetings stamped and embossed in gold.

I am entering this into the Crafty Individual Christmas Frenzy competition
