The Glory of Christmas 22: snow

This is my design card for The Glory of Christmas 22: snow. Please click on the link and see the other lovely creations and join in with the challenge.

I've used an A5 landscape opening black card blank, cutting away some of the right hand piece of the front. I embossed silver mirror card using the 8 x 8 Embossalicious 'star of wonder' embossing folder with my eBosser. Ribbon with gems is from Hobbycraft.

I inked the IndigoBlu 'stag night' stamp with Elzybells sugar candy pigment inkpad on to black card heat embossing with detail white powder. I then tore round the black card, mounted on to white and tore around that before sticking on to the front of the card slightly overlapping on the right hand side.  I won a £20 voucher for the Lisa B Designs October challenge and the 'stag night' stamp was one of the items I chose, along with the 'bare forest' IndigoBlu stamp and Vive la Plume by June Gill.
