Crafters Companion Winter View Christmas card




Hello everyone and welcome to the Holiday Challenge at ATSM


 

I hope you are having a good week. We have been having some work done on the house and had to empty the sitting room for a couple of weeks, so my craft space has had to take much of the furniture and is not the nicest place to be right now. I'm not good when my peaceful place is no longer peaceful and prefer it when the mess is of my own making lol! However, the weather has been so gorgeous here that I probably would have been outdoors anyway.

Here is the card I made using an NBUS Crafters Companion set I got some time ago.




I cut the window aperture first and then embossed the brickwork before inking it to give definition. The tree stamp comes with the set so you can look into the window, but there is also an outdoor view of trees so you can look out.



I finished off by adding a bow and some fern leaves along with the banner sentiment.

 The team have some great inspiration for you over on the ATSM blog and it would be great for you to visit them and leave some love.

I'd like to play along at
