here. It's just the most beautiful card I've seen for ages, however while I love tree stamps and have a whole forest of them, I wanted to do things a little differently. So I decided to use the Hero Arts city stamp I bought a while back which hasn't yet got inky. But you don't need to look too closely to see that this isn't a one layer card...
I masked off the card, used my duster brushes and Distress Inks, stamped the buildings. It looked gorgeous. Then I took off the Post-Its and saw that my gorgeous scene was upside down on my card! I have now done one that I'm happy with but the next few had silly mistakes on them. So I trimmed this with a little of the white either side and gold embossed a Sheena Douglass star on it. Hmm... looked like the stable in Bethlehem was now a skyscraper... rapidly added Santa in his sleigh:).
The DP is Artylicous from the Spirit of Christmas CD, the sentiment Craftwork Cards and the lacy MS punch was a present from my very kind friend Val.
