This gorgeous snowy scene is A Crofter's Winter from Delicious Doodles. I've had this digital image for many years and have used it a couple times before, but I recently rediscovered it in my digital stash. I can see the warmth coming out of the chimmey and inviting you into the cozy cabin by the fireplace, all toasty and warm on this cold winter's day! I printed the image in grey and added Stampin' Up Dazzling Diamonds glitter on parts of the scene. The photo below shows the sparkle a bit better.
For the sentiment, I used my brand-new stamp and die set from Simon Says Stamp called Christmas Word Mix 1. I heat-embossed the sentiment in silver (The Artful Stamper) and die-cut with the coordinating die. Behind the sentiment circle I added some silver eyelash trim. The background panel is embossed with Darice Snowflake Background (a well-used old favourite), and I added some lacy ribbon from my Dollarama stash.
Here's my new stamp and die set:
