Winter's Jewels

Good morning all.

We gave my Uncle a good send off yesterday, the church was full and luckily the weather was kind too. I came home with a huge boxful of ribbons and suchlike which my brother's ex wife had put together for me when clearing her Mum's house...I was like a pig in a poke when I got home!

A second gift card holder to share today.

After masking the base card to create a panel I stamped the Personal Impression stamp three times with versamark and heat embossed with white detail EP. The panel was then inked with DI and a sentiment from the same stamp set stamped below. A few gems were added to finish off.
Inside I used another waste off cut from my stitched landscape dies to create the pocket.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - one layer snow
Just Inspirational - blue and white
Simon Says Stamp - winter inspiration
Get Creative - blue and white/silver
Fashionable Stamping - turn up the heat
