Peaceful Nighttime Scene (Impression Obsession products)

Hello, everyone!  I hope my U.S. friends are enjoying their Thanksgiving festivities today!  I was back in my craftroom this morning and made another holiday card.  I enjoy playing in the challenges over at IO Blog and this time their theme is Christmas greetings.  I keep trying to win over there so maybe this will be my time! If not, you know I'll just keep trying LOL!  So today I used all Impression Obsession products.


I decided to make a nighttime winter scene with silver and gold.  It looks fabulous in person but so difficult to get a good photo!  The trees are IO's Birch Trees DIE079-U and the buck is from IO's Deer Trio DIE080-N set.  The snowbanks were hand-drawn and hand-cut and I sponged on Black Soot Distress Ink.  For the sentiment I heat-embossed Season's Greetings A5488 in Egyptian Gold. I think a vertical sentiment adds some interest. The metallic cardstock was in my stash and I believe it came from Dollarama.  I wish they'd get it back again - it's actually quite nice.   



Today I am entering these fun challenges:

  1. IO Blog Christmas Greetings UE C5
  2. Party Time Tuesday AG 2/3
  3. ShowCASe Your Style  Gold Black Silver White UE
  4. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 2/5
  5. Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!


P.S. I'm celebrating 200 followers with candy!  Help me celebrate! My candy is here. So far only 16 crafty friends have entered - I will draw the winner on December 1 - so keep your fingers crossed!

Very pretty! I understand how frustrating it is to photograph silver and gold foil papers. You captured it nicely here.

The metallics were a great choice. I haven't used my deer dies yet but am thinking about making a mass produced card with them and the birch trees. They're so wonderful together. You've created a wonderful scene. :-)
