Pass me a blanket!

My goodness it's COLD!!! We've missed the snow that has dropped in a lot of places but we've had sleet, hailstones and the wind chill factor is unbelievable - glad to be here in the craftie space with all the heaters on!
Have been busy finishing a couple of things -  which I will share over the next few days and today's share is a bit of a change for me... this is the first time I have used Kraft card stock! Can you believe it???? No idea why I've never used it before - have made several Christmas cards with the pack I bought LAST YEAR (!!!) and I'm quite pleased!  

Which is more than I can say for this picture.... pleased I am NOT! But the light here has been so bad lately, it's really difficult to get a decent photo.

And because the photo is not the best the 'snow' doesn't show up at all well. The card used has glittered spots all over it and it's really sparkly... I just tore the edges and layered it using foam pads. You'll all have to believe me when I tell you it looks quite good 'in real life'!

Snowflakes are all embossed with WOW White embossing powder. Reindeer was stamped with Versamark as was the sentiment.
Ribbon from stash.

  11. I believe that it looks even lovelier in real life, Viv. It is such an unusual Christmas card... Kraft looks good rather it looks great. I like the hand tearing.
