It's Artistic Outpost Christmas in July

It's a new release......we call it Midwinter

A very versatile set, many of the images can be used throughout the year.  I decided to do all Christmas...........


I used one of the beautiful scenes to create this card....using my nestie and stamping on glossy.  I added some color and glitter to this card.


The Christmas Cardinal speaks for itself with a very pretty satin bow, colored with pencils.

On my last card .... the Elk is embossed, and colored in with a marker.  The background is using an embossing folder on black, then swiped with gold, silver and red Brilliance ink.

Gorgeous festive cards... the stamps are amazing, and I love your snowy cabin, beautiful colouring on the cardinal, but I've got to go with Anita - the elk is sesnsational (as is his funky background!).
