Our Creative Team member Ilina is joining us with some Christmas inspiration.

 Hi everyone! This is Ilina and today I have a little winter scene card for you. I used Winter Time Fun set  and dies along with the Color Layering Holly set for the sentiment. I started by stamping my images onto white card stock with Intense Black ink pad, then colored with Copic markers and die cut using the coordinating dies.

 I applied Versamark to the tree using a micro tip applicator and embossed the "snow" parts using the White Puff embossing powder to make it look like snow. 

I cut the snowy landscape using some white glitter card stock and Snowy Drifts Fancy Dies. On piece of Snow Layering paper I applied Soft Pool ink using blending tool, stamped the snow fall with Versamark ink and embossed with the White Puff Embossing powder. For the top part I used another piece of Snow Layering Paper, die cut a circle using the Circle Infinity dies and stamped the sentiment. 

I assembled my card and adhered on Pool Mix Folded Note card. 

 

Don’t forget Advent Calendar Extravaganza runs from 1st-25th December inclusive so make sure you visit taheerah-atchia.com every day for fabulous inspiration and amazing prizes every single time! Merry Christmas!

Lovely card. The bunny is especially cute. I love the puffed snow on the trees and the bunny is inside the circle and the deer and the raccoon are outside the circle. That’s a great effect. Thanks for sharing! Merry Christmas!

I was totally done with my Christmas cards and now I realized I have some puffy snow embossing powder and didn’t use it on any of my cards this year. Now I HAVE to go make another one!!! (Hmmmm……wonder who I will give it to.) Thanks so much for a great card and for sponsoring this most amazing hop.
