Christmas Card Club Challenge #4 - Snowy Mountains and Skies

Hi Crafters,

Firstly I'd like to apologise for not visiting you all lately. 
Orders have been coming in thick and fast and whilst this is a good thing it prevents me from spending time blogging and commenting so I'm sorry if you haven't heard from me for a while. I appreciate all who have commented here of late and I will try to pop by soon.

Now on to the Christmas Card Club theme for this fortnight...

SNOWY MOUNTAINS & SKIES


Recipe
Christmas Village Die by Crafters Companion
Gold Glitter Card
Gold glitter Embossing Powder

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is a very minimal and CAS card design for me. I cut the die and inked through it with Versamark embossing ink then sprinkled with gold glitter embossing powder and heat set.
It looks very sparkly in real life.
I've only managed one card this challenge but a lot of the team have been making multiple cards this year to get ahead with the Christmas rush, do take a look at their marvelous designs - a list of their blogs is in the tab at the top of my page.
