Figgy Pudding Lane

Morning my crafting friends, hope this day finds you well? Sorry I have not posted of late I have been busy catching up with chores on my return from my hols and not had much time to craft, anyhow I did manage to do this one in-between chores lol!

I thought it was about time I used my folders from Sheena Douglass so I brayed the folder on the inside with Versamark Ink Pad, placed my card inside the folder and put it through the E Bosser. I then covered it with White embossing powder and heat embossed it, this covered the walls of the buildings, I rubbed some Black ink over the embossed areas to show up the outline of the buildings.

I applied some Distress Inks, Pumice Stone first followed by Vintage Photo over the buildings I felt this gave an aged look to some of the walls, I painted in the beams using Black Soot, the windows using Squeezed Lemonade and signs with Vintage Photo, Fired Brick & Chipped Sapphire. The sky I coloured using Chipped Sapphire.

I placed a piece of snow covered Acetate over the image and made a frame for the card. Once stuck together I attached this to the front of a 5"X7" card.

I stamped my sentiment onto some White card and matted it onto some Gold card, making it a ribbon and attached it to the front of the card. I added a snowflake on top of this as well as in the upper corners to take the bareness away from the edges. There you have the finished card.

I have tried various, but similar ways of using this folder, will show these at a later date. Not your usual Christmas card but different!
