Country Time Christmas

Today we're back with snowy slopes, country crisp temperatures, and a cozy house waiting for Christmas decorating. This set, illustrated by Lauren Pope will have you heading for the hills in search of the perfect tree. This earthy and scenic image is paired with five different sentiments and a flurry of snowflakes swirling in the winter sky. Set measures 4" by 6".
   


To say I adore this set would be an understatement. A new favorite stamp set for Christmas!!  This is Country Time Christmas. My image is stamped onto Classic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
Colored with Copic collections:





Once colored I matted onto some Color Made Easy Rich Browns card stock. Layered a piece of Bo Bunny Powder Powder Mountain designer paper onto a Classic white cardstock layer with a scalloped edge. Wrapped some Jute twine around the edge and matted on more Color Made Easy Rich Brown cardstock. Tied off my sentiment oval with a wooden button and my edge panel as well. Sparkles all over the snow and Voila!
