Christmas Village

In spite of having a good stock of Christmas cards I'm still drawn into making more - this time using a 'free' die which was on a Tattered Lace Magazine which jumped into my basket some time ago.  I have to confess that today was the first time the die had actually been taken off the magazine so that it can be stored away with my collection.  I used the free embossing folder which has appeared previously but this time I cut out an oval from the middle of it to contain my little village scene.  Backing paper is a pretty one with embossed snowflakes found in my stash.  I wondered about adding a greeting but probably won't because this really speaks for itself as a Christmas card.  Of course looking for something else, I've come across a set of free bauble stamps which have never been used so maybe another seasonal card is called for!!  I think I picked up the magazine with those on the cover last year and they deserve to be used.

Embossed panel - free folder used on white Centura Pearl card dusted with blue ink
Background - Papermania paper with embossed snowflakes
Village - free dies from Tattered Lace
Snowy hill - scrap of white card torn
Scene - dusted with Glamour Dust for a bit of sparkle
