Top Tip Tuesday Christmas Card

Hello and welcome here! It's Christmas! Or almost, lol, and you may be panicking that you haven't finished your Christmas cards.  Today I want to share a quick, easy one with you since the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge is Christmas.

Challenge - Christmas
DT Tips

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
 TIPTo dress up the stamp a little, I embossed the paper with Spellbinder's Decorative Labels 8, it adds interest without being too fussy.

I stamped the image first, and then embossed the card, rounded the corners, and added Stickles to the rooftops.

 For a chance at the following prizes, be sure to link your creation to the Christmas  at Top Tip Tuesday, you can enter up to 3 times!! For a chance at an extra prize leave a tip on your blog and be sure to leave 'tip' after your name in Mr. Linky.
Don't forget the challenge runs for 2 weeks

I darkened the photo to try and bring out the embossing so that you can see it.  It's really nice and subtle in real life.

 Glitter doesn't photograph very well, but I added some to the rooftops to look like snow glittering.

Recipe:  CTMH CS-White Daisy, SS-Stampendous Snowy Postcard, Distress Ink Weathered Wood, Spellbinders-Decorative Labels 8, Crystal Ice Stickles, Corner Rounder.

This is gorgeous... I've seen this stamp a couple of times, and it's such a fabulous image, and you've framed it beautifully here with the subtle embossing. Love the sparkly snow too... great inspiration for the TTT challenge, thank you!
