A winter scene

This card is for Rogue redhead 7: frosty - use vellum. I used three Kanban stamps to make a winter scene, stamped with versamark and embossed with silver detail direct to the white card blank. I repeated some of the stamping on the left hand side because it wasn't wide enough for the card.

I then found a piece of vellum that I've had for ages that has very tiny white spots on it and ran this through my xyron to stick over the stamped scene, with an additional piece at the bottom to represent some snowy hills in the background. The organaza ribbon wrapped round twice and knotted and the sentiment just bring a bit of relief to the picture.

This was a very difficult one to get a photo that gave anywhere near the right look to the card - you just can't see the silver shining through the vellum, but this is the best I could do:
