London Scene....

Morning peeps I thought I'd share with you a card I made using one of the new Crafty Individual stamps, this one is landmarks of London, I embossed with Aurora embossing powders for a lovely shimmery effect, that is hard to photograph, The template I used for the card is from  House of Zandra, they do some lovely templates so I'm working my way through them, perfect for collage cards. The front of the card is distress inked and then I stamped snowflakes and the verse in blue, I put acetate across the aperture and then stamped on the santa and sleigh in Stazon, I added little dots on the acetate for the falling snow effect and added white lines around the buildings. The tree I did with Frantage micas , shavings and glitter.......so loving the texture and effect of this. Talking of Crafty Individuals if you spend £15 you get a limited edition star stamp which is gorgeous.

Beautifil card Daniele with all the things on it working so well together. Nice to have you share it with us at Out of a Hat this week though the challenge is for Christmas packaging. I'm sure a box decorated like your card would be just as amazing.

Love Chrissie xxxx
