Enjoy The Beauty of The Season

Welcome to my weekly post for Artistic Outpost and this week I am continuing with a second of my two cards a month for Christmas. I am determined to be more organised this year!
I used the same background as last week which I created on an A4 piece of card and then cut up to create the backgrounds for the cards to showcase the image from the Mid Winter stamp set.
Very difficult to catch the sparkle on the roof of the cabin but I have added Distress Glitter to the top for a touch of shimmer. The focal image has been added to die cut baubles.
Layers of stencilling and brayered layers of paint add to the interest of the background.
I used punches to add foliage to the top of the bauble along with a snowflake embellishment.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I will be back to non Christmas makes next week for Artistic Outpost.

TRULY WONDERFUL Tracy... with my favorite thing... an old cabin. Your card is so lovely and my favorite part about it is the QUAINT PEACEFULNESS; makes you just want to walk through the heart into the winter wonderland and sit by the fire. Super way to start my day with your creativity. j.

Finally time for a quick catch up!! Time just never seems to be on my side at the moment.

Love the soft smoky colour palette of this, and the lovely framing of the image on the bauble.

Tracy...I so love this card. The frosty blues and teals, white and touches of purple and grey are perfect for this. Love your snowy cabin as well. You always makes such beautiful cards, Tracy. Love the matting and the lovely snowflake ensemble at the top of the ornament shaped snowy cabin scene. Your background with the random swirls and circles is really captivating. I also love your stars. Just lovely.
