Christmas Card Club - "Snowy Mountains and Skies"

Good morning all.

Hoping to spend some time in the craft room today...I have some Distress Oxides to test drive!! Never thought you'd hear me say this but yesterday I ended up in a garden centre with a craft department and after a wander around I discovered I didn't want or need anything...I had to have a lie down in a darkened room when I got home lol!

Kate has set us the challenge of "Snowy Mountains and Skies" over at the Christmas Card Club.
Note to self...re-read the remit before heading to the craft room. I only remembered the skies bit...sorry Kate :(

A rummage through my embossing folders yielded this Crafter's Companion folder...I was going to do a WOW but decided to add in some silver. The embossed piece was simply matted and layered using Spellbinders nestie squares. The snowflake die is also from Spellbinders and the sentiment is from STAMPlorations.

I did like the design so I repeated it in cream and gold! I'd like to say no machines were hurt during the construction of this card but my Grand Calibur decided to bite the dust...luckily SP are going to send me a replacement part FOC and I eventually managed to source some of the A4 plates for my Platinum so I'm fully functioning once more.

If you'd like to see what the other girl's have made you'll find their links on my sidebar.
