I'm still on a roll with Christmas cards and this is another fairly simple stamped one using a stamp with matching die for the scene and trees and a silhouette one from another set for the Santa flying across the sky.     I started by stamping the scene and colouring in the trees before masking off the lower portion to brush ink across the sky area.   A few pine sprigs were stamped around the top and the silhouette Santa stamped in the sky.  The trees were then die cut and embossed before adding embossing ink to the raised areas and heat embossing using white detail powder.  A touch of glitter on the snow in the background and that's it.

I've been playing around this morning with a serious amount of snippets as well so watch out for the resulting card tomorrow.
