Wishing You An Enchanted Holiday Season

This is one of my favourite Christmas card designs this year, I love the colours.

"Wishing You An Enchanted Holiday Season"

The background is inked with distress inks and overstamped with gold snowflakes. The scene is stamped in black archival and heat-embossed in clear, which gives a lovely texture to the trees and helps the reindeer jump off the page. The sentiment is printed, diecut and coloured with distress inks, then raised with foam pads. The whole scene is matted onto black card before fixing to a card blank.
