Rustic Seasonal Card

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all, hope you have had a fabulous festive break and looking forward to a creative 2014.
I have used the SNOWY WOODS plate this week to create a rustic Christmas card.
The background has been decorated using Tim Holtz Hollybough layering stencil, applying White Embossing Paste through the stencil and then colouring with Distress Stains.
I added a small poinsettia cut from Kraft Glassine to add to the rustic feel.
To highlight the texture from the embossing I also applied Wax over the raised areas.
I also die cut a tree to add to my card for further interest again coloured with Distress Stains, with touches of background stamping added to the tree.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
