A Pixie Cottage Christmas Card

Time to start adding more Christmas cards to you stash, and this week's theme at The Pixie Cottage is Christmas card.  There is also a wonderful sketch to follow.  So create a card using the theme or the sketch, or both, but come join us for this week's challenge! 

There are lots of wonderful Pixie Cottage stamps available at Michelle's Scrapbooking.  For the Christmas card theme, I used the Winter Window image by Sandra Hammer.  I colored it with Copics, sponged lightly around the edge with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink, and added some Stickles to the snow and tree.  I stamped and cut out an additional tree, colored the same at the first one, and mounted it on foam dots.  I followed the sketch and used DP from The Paper Studio. Sentiment was printed from my computer, cut/embossed with Spellbinders Double-Ended Tag and added the acrylic snowflakes. 

Stamp:  "Winter Window" from The Pixie Cottage.
Paper:  The Paper Studio  DP and  CS.
Ink:  Copics, Distress Ink.
Accessories:  Stickles, foam dots, acrylic snowflakes.


Challenges
One Stitch at a Time:  Christmas
Papertake Weekly: Anything goes
