A Winter's Scene for the Christmas Card Club!

Hello Everyone I hope all is well with you, but if not sending out kind and positive thoughts that you will feel better soon.

Once again it's time for the CCC ladies to share their Christmas cards. It's a fortnightly challenge where one of us chooses a theme and we all get on with it. So this time it's the turn of our lovely Rachel and she would like to see cards depicting a Winter Scene, so without further ado here are mine;
This is my first card and I've used one of my lovely Justinklined images, it's a big stamp and comes along with the gorgeous floral stamps. I've coloured it all with SN Pencils, all shades of blue and which are really lovely to work with. Embossilicious Folder of beautiful bells on Centura Pearl card.
This card was inspired by the lovely creations made by Inkylicious, although the only Inkylicious stamp is the branches stamped and embossed in Wow Silver powder in the background.
The stamps are all from freebies from Creative Stamping Magazine a couple of years ago, which have been stamped on to Kraft card, which has been inked with White ink, lots of glitter on the snow. 
I was very pleased with the way this card turned out as I had only stamps which were similar to the ones used by Inkylicious.

Remember to pop over and see what the other CCC ladies have created.  I will be scheduling this as at the time of going live I will be in Shetland.
Over the last week I've not managed to do much by way of commenting but hope to catch up  somewhat when I return home. I've had a very busy week with one thing and another, but I have seen your cards on my reader's list and so much gorgeousness there is.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my Oldie card, very kind as ever you all are.

Take care and I will see you soon,

These are beautiful Kate! Real wintry scenes and making me shiver. Oddly enough I had the magazine stamp out the other day but only used the trees on another card. Hope things are well with you. Hugs Christine xx

Hi Kate
Could've sworn I'd commented on this.
Both cards are absolutely stunning but the first one is divine.
You have some beautiful stamps in your collection and you have done lovely things with them.
Best wishes.

Kate, both of these are just stunning. Especially love the work on the kraft card - it has such a lovely glow. #1 is just as beautiful, and each embossing folder is perfectly suited to the card theme. Such wonderful EF's too. Sorry to be late in visiting, and I hope your holiday was just super grand, and you had good weather, with a relaxing and fun time away. TFS & Hugs
