Christmas advent event - day 3

Good morning! Iwoke up in a white morning today. It's been snowing the whole day yesterday, but it was a wet snow, so it didn't stick to the ground. But it looks like it was snowing at night too, because now the roofs and grass are green. There isn't a whole lot of snow, but even a little bit helps you get in the "December mood". Don't you think so?

It's the third dayof our Christmas advent event at CRPI blog and one again we have a wonderful sponsor. Our today's sponsor is Quixotic paperie and they are offering the lucky winner a £10 voucher to spend in their store. They have lots of yummy things in their store so it's definitely worth checking out. :)

I made a vintage Christmas card for this day.

I just used scraps of papers from my stash. The light blue paper on the left side (under the ribbon) is embossed with TH snowflakes embossing folder. The image is from Recollections. Again I used one of my favourite satin ribbons from Crafty ribbons (you can find it here). The "doily" behind the main image is a die cut that I got from a friend of mine. I stamped over it with several different snowflake stamps. The Christmas trees are Sizzix dies and the big snowflake is Marianne designs die.I embossed the Christmas trees and the snowflake with Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder and then inked the raised dots with my inkpad. The smallsnowflakes are made with my craft punch.
