Snowy Winter's Cottage

Hello, lovely blogger friend's.
I hope you are well.
It's getting very cold here in Derbyshire.
I'm here to share another Christmas card. This time I have used one one the gorgeous image's from Pion Glistening Season.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design 'I Wish' Paper 6 x 6 paper stack from The Ribbon Girl
Other dies used are; Cheery Lynn French pastry doily, English tea party doily and pine branches. Sizzix on the edge snow flurries, Marianne design Ivy circle, Joy Crafts Ice crystal circle and Billes flourishes.
I have inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz frayed burlap distress ink.
The gorgeous 'Marie Therese' lace and double row white pearl trim are from LLC

A close look at the flower arrangements.
I used white flower spray's, birch pine cones, white pomegranate apples, large frosted berries and Vintage star pin all from LLC
The 30mm light Ivory wild roses and 25mm olive green open roses are from WOC. 
I placed some cheesecloth from The Ribbon Girl underneath the arrangements.
I have coated the flower arrangements with Snow - Tex.
The Wycinanka reindeer and jingle bell that I have tied around his neck are also from LLC
I painted the reindeer with white Gesso and attached the bell with natural hemp twine from 
The Ribbon Girl and adhered a 3mm green s/a pearl to the centre.

A close look at Snowy Winter's cottage.
The image and 2mm white pearl string are from LLC
I adhered the length of 2mm white pearl bead string around the outside of the image and coated the snowy areas on the image with glamour dust.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper, a smaller GoKreate large frame frilly #2 die cut and a sentiment taken from the sheet of Pion Glistening Season.

I hope you like my card?
