Inky Chicks - Christimas

Good evening everyone!

Well here in the UK the night's are definitely pulling in quickly - and that means winter time and Christmas is fast approaching. I'm not sure if to smile or frown --- lol. 

So on this dark Tuesday evening I'm here to share my Inky Chicks DT card with you, and the theme this week is Christmas --- I know I said the 'C' word.  So I decided to use this stamp from Hobbyart which I've had for a few years. I did actually use this stamp for my family Christmas cards a few years ago, and I just love it. It's such a pretty and versatile stamp, as it can be stamped and used as a flat image or can be stamped several times and decoupaged - which is exactly what I did on this occasion.

Here's What I did
I stamped the house 3 times and colour it with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, then fussy cut sections out which I layered up to give dimension. The house topper was matted onto some complimentary cardstock, and added to the kraft card base which was cut down to make a slim card. To finish off I added an embellished bow.and a touch of glitter to the snowy areas.

Here's everything I used:
Stamp: Hobbyart 'Christmas House' 
Paper/Cardstock (CS): Kraft Card, Kanban, Papermania
Promarkers/Flexmarkers: Various Colours Used (oops, sorry I don't have a list)
Other: Glitter, Ribbon, Snowflake Embellishment

Loving the depth you've given with the layers on this fab card Janine... and isn't it refreshing doing a wonderful tall card too? I really must get out of the habit of square, square, square!!
