Victorian Winter

This card uses one of my favorite stamp sets, Christmas Lodge (123767). I stamped the house scene on Whisper White with Black Stazon ink (101406) and used the Aqua Painter (103954) to color it in with the Watercolor crayons. Using the Multipurpose Glue (110755) add the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (102023) to the roof tops and yard. Cut the image out with the Labels Collection Framelits (125598). Sponge around it with Midnight Muse ink. Cut the next size of label from Midnight Muse cardstock and attach to the back of the image. ( I then trimmed it down with the Paper Snips (103579). Stamp the garland from the same set onto Whisper White and color as above, adding the Dazzling Diamonds to the snow spots. Attach dimensionals to the back and place on the edge of the first image.

Cut your first mat from Silver Glimmer Paper (124005), sponging around the edge with Midnight Muse ink,  and a slightly larger mat from Midnight muse cardstock. Add a spot of Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details (125585) to each corner and set aside to dry.

Cut a mat from Whisper White cardstock and run it throught the Big Shot (113439) with the Petals A Plenty (116824) or Framed Tulips (121809) folder. (Yes, I used a retired one :( ). Cut a slightly larger mat from Midnight Muse and another larger one from the In Color DSP (126910) and sponge around this one with Midnight Muse ink. Add these to the Cherry Cobbler card base and attach your image to the top.

Add your sentiment to the inside and stamp one of the images onto the envelope and you are ready to send it off to a lucky recipient!

Enjoy the day and thanks for stopping by!!!


  1. How did you get the image of the country house to stick to the Glimmer Paper?? My images always fall off. Liquid glue and SNAIL don't seem to want to adhere to the glimmer side. Beautiful card. I love the vintage, old fashioned country house.

    1. Sandra, sorry I have taken so long to respond. For some reason messages don't always show up on my blog.

      I use good quality glue dots to attach things to the glimmer paper.
