All is calm, all is bright

Hello and welcome. I'm back with a Christmas card for a couple of challenges.

I pulled out an older wood-mounted background stamp by Hero Arts and stamped and white heat-embossed it onto a panel of watercolour card. I then used my Winsor & Newton paints to create a galaxy sky, drying in between layers. After die cutting the panel using a stitched rectangle die (SSS), I foam-mounted my panel onto my white card base. My sentiment (Catherine Pooler's Winterhaven Collection) was heat embossed in liquid platinum and then die cut using a stitched circle die (SSS) and a stitched rectangle die (SSS) and then layered onto a larger circle from vellum.

I'm playing at:

SSS Wednesday - Anything goes

ATSM - #356 Anything goes

CHNC - #453 Anything Christmas goes 
(optional: S ... for snowflakes)

Crimbo Crackers - #192 Anything Christmas goes


  1. A beautiful burst of snowflakes on the deep tones of blue Marianne, really very elegant.

  2. Herken de stempel onmiddellijk, blijft mooi. En wat heb je er een mooie, elegante kaart van weten te maken. Prachtige diepte opbouw van blauw,
    afwerking van het tekstgedeelte, met de zachte overgang van vellum.
    Inspirerend. Liefs, Ineke☀️
