Christmas Lodge

Christmas just seems to be the buzz right now and we have not even gotten to Thanksgiving yet here in the US!  But I am loving getting all these cards ready for Christmas.  Such a great and fun time of year!

This was another quick card I put together last Friday Night during our Praise and paper Crafting (PPN) event at Christian Paper Crafts.  It was a lot of fun to put this one together and I love the outcome.  This was to use a sketch and that is exactly what I did.  Sketches just really help to get me started with a card!  Now there are times that they do not look like the sketch what so ever, but the sketch was my starting point.  Here is the sketch that I used!  I made my card the regular size, A2!

Now here is a close up of the image.  I stamped it in black and then using the versamark ink pad, I covered the whole circle.  I poured the iridescent ice embossing powder over it and heated it with the hot gun to get the sparkle.  I love doing that.  It really makes it look so wintery.

Here is another view of the card!  Want you to see from every angle! lol
