All is Calm

Another Christmas card.  Looking back at THIS card, I wanted to try that idea with a different central image. 

supplies: white, Surf Blue, and Peacock Teal cardstock, Wplus9 Pine Frame cover die, (retired) Penny Black Christmas Cottage woodblock, dated 2013, retired sentiment, glitter pen and clear glitter, adhesive foam to pop up cover plate

I found that my old Spellbinders Oval die is the perfect fit for the center of this cover die.  So I stamped the little image inside one, colored it minimally, and shaded some ink for the sky, leaving it inside the die.  Then I added a tiny bit of glitter to the shadows and the roofline and stamped my sentiment before attaching the oval to my pine frame.  That panel was then popped above my card base.  

It's a treat digging out all these "old" supplies and using them again each Christmas!
