Savor the MidWinter

Hello and welcome back. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. I hope you are enjoying the Christmas season. I've been down with the flu for most of the past week. Today was the first day that I felt able to sit at my craft table and play. Fortunately the boutique has been slow this week while most of you have been focusing on your family festivities.

Anyway, since I was pretty much out of commission and felt like I missed most of Christmas, I'm still wanting to enjoy winter/Christmas crafting and decided to make another winter themed card for my Artistic Outpost DT piece this week.  I stamped the forest scene from the Midwinter set onto a #8 manila tag in Potting Soil, ripped off the bottom end and sponged it with Vintage Photo DI.   I filled in all the snowy areas by brushing on Glossy Accents and then shaking on Rock Candy distress glitter.  The designer papers are from Maja Design It's Christmas Time collection.
I got out my Queen's Gold EP and coated the filigree metals and the snowflake strip that I cut with the  Holly Beaded and Snowflake Garland.  I also used it to emboss the sentiment.

That's pretty much it for this card.  Thanks again for stopping by and have a great winter Sunday.








The products below were used to make this card and can be purchased at The Funkie Junkie Boutique:

That is an absolutely stunning card, I am in awe. I love the stitching around the frame & the silver snowflake embellishment is gorgeous.

This is just beautiful Linda and the sentiment from one of my all time fave Christmas Carols - as I sang the first verse solo many times at Christmas Services when I was (much) younger!!)
Am sorry that you've been so poorly - how rotten any time but worse at Christmas - hope 2014 brings you everything you wish for. xx

Lovely card, so unified. No, that's not right, put together so seamlessly? Looks effortless, but I'm sure it wasn't. Think the cold has affected my brain. Fourteen degrees this morn, colder with wind chill. Hope you feel better soon, and have a happy new year.
