An Old Country Christmas...

I love antiques!! And this Wreath, Sled and Birds scene by Northwoods reminded me of an old barn in the midwest with this charming sled leaning against it. I couldn't wait to make a card with it!!

The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black (memento) onto Neenah Natural white, and colored with copics. I added a touch of Crystal Glitter to the snow and holly leaves with my Quickie Glue pen, and topped off the card with a Detail Black embossed Script Merry Christmas (Northwoods).

The gorgeous plaid ribbon is May Arts and can be found HERE.

ETA: I feel like I deceived y'all!! There was a comment that the sled and birds looked popped up, but since I didn't mention it, it was thought that my shading was awesome. I'm so sorry. I use dimension so often, that sometimes I forget to mention it. The sled and birds are one layer, and then I actually layered the bottom half of the snow too. I had a hard time getting a good picture of it with the glitter, so I didn't add that photo. So sorry for the deception everyone. It wasn't intentional.


Supplies:
Stamps - Northwoods
Paper - Black, Vanilla Cream, White (Prismatics) Neenah Solar White
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento), Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress ink)
Accessories, Detail Black ep (Judikins), Glitter, ribbon, copics, Rhinestone Stickers (icons - Me and My Big Ideas), dimensional tape

Quick! Hand me a quilt so I can sink myself into it with a warm cup of cocoa topped with real whipping cream and perhaps just a drop of Kahlua so I may sit by the fireplace and gaze into your card.
