Christmas in July??!!

Oh yes, gotta make a start nice and early! :o)

For this card I layered up various patterned papers, which I believe were some magazine freebies last year, however I can't remember which one. Then for the main image used my favorite "Snow" stamp (you will probably see this a few times on my xmas creations!) I stamped using versamark then embossed with Silver Glitter embossing powder. I coloured the letters using Promarkers and added the sentiment using Peel Off's which I haven't used for a while! I added a few dots of Liquid Pearls to one section of patterned paper and some Diamond Stickles around the edge of the sentiment panel just for a bit of Christmassy sparkle :o)
