I've used the layout from this week's challenge at My Favourite Things Wednesday Sketch Club - MFTWSC#255. The photo at Card Concept - CC#44 inspired me to use a plaid background and go for a really festive colour scheme - reds and greens, with sparkle.
I used Crumb Cake card to create the base. I stamped the plaid background using a Kaleidacolour pad - love the variation in colours. I stamped the foreground of snow hills, snowman and trees first, masked them and then added the lovely chalet. I cut out the image with a fancy edge die and coloured the image with Copic markers. I kept the colours simple and added three different types of glitter to give some texture to the image. I adhered the image to the card, added some festive Washi tape and finished with a snowflake. On the inside I cut a piece of cream card, added a Christmas greeting and lots of snowflakes.
I also took an out-of-focus photo of the chalet to show the shimmer and sparkle of all the different glitters:
The tinsel glitter on the rooftop really catches the light and sparkles so much!
