Christmas @ Inspired Stamps

Mornings folks :) 

I hope this Tuesday is finding you all well. 

I have an 
creation to share with you today! 

The girls and I have all been having some fun playing with Christmas :) 
Not that I need an excuse to play with Christmas :)) but it is fast approaching and time to start thinking about making a start on those Christmas cards if you have not already done so. 

I had two attempts at this card.  For a week it sat on my desk as a one layer card, but every time I looked at it, I though to myself, it would look so much better on a matt and eventually, the urge got the better of me and it got a little slice and dice and wella ... somehow magically ended up on a matt. lol  I do like it so much better this way though :$

Forgive me for using my flash :$  I really wanted to try and capture the sparkle of the glitter I added to the embossing powder.

  The Fir trees from Inspired Stamps are a great versatile image to play with and for this card I embossed it with white embossing powder and I really wanted it to shine like snow so I added a little Stampin' Up Dazzling Diamond and along the bottom from the Nativity Set I have used the Blessed Christmas sentiment, I don't know why this is the first time I have used it as it is a lovely Christmas sentiment that I intend on using more now! 

The Inspired Girls this week have all been well inspired too so do drop by the Inspired Stamps Blog and share some love with them and check out their Christmas cards too!  I am sure you will be pleased with what you see :)) 
And the gorgeous Christmas Stamps I used today and many other gorgeous stamps 
can all be found at the Inspired Stamps Store!
