A Crofters Winter

Hello, everybody.  Today I am sharing a set of Christmas cards I made as a gift for someone special (I won't name names because I want them to be surprised).  I made a set of 3 cards a week or so ago, but those were requested by someone I showed them to, so I had to make another set LOL.  The beautiful image I used this time is called A Crofters Winter from Delicious Doodles.  I won some images from them last week and I couldn't wait to make some cards. 

I printed the image in five different colours and added glitter along the snow.  The glitter doesn't show up that well in the photo but it looks very nice in person.  The embossing folders used were Couture Creations Sugarplum Ball and Cuttlebug Snowflakes.  The ribbon is all from Offray.  Here are some individual photos of the cards so you can see the glitter a bit better.  Well, do you have a favourite?
