I've made an 8x8 card and used my luvverly new stamps to make a wintery scene for my BILs Christmas card. I began by stamping the gate and house on some glossy cardstock. I then stamped the fencce posts, adding a couple of extras and some twiggy bits in betwee. I stamped in the Christmas trees and addedl the little robin to one of the fence posts.
I masked the house and a moon and brayered in the sky using memento tuxedo black ink and then sponged in a horizon line and a few snowdrifts using the same ink. I matted the scene on white and black card and added a creative acrylic tag, stamped the sentiment with black stazon and attached it with some black and white spotty ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.
I used snowflake stamps from Stampers Anonymous with tuxedo black ink on white glossy card to create a background layer and matted that on more black card. To finish off I've used a white gel pen to add snowflakes to the night sky and I've added a dusting of glamour dust for a frosty sparkle
