Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

With all the snow we're currently enjoying/enduring here in th UK, what else could I post today, but a snowy Christmas card??? Inspired by one of Jen's Less is More cards from yesterday, I used her layout to create a CAS Christmas card using one of my all time favourite stamps...'Snowy' by Penny Black. I embossed the two background panels using my Cuttlebug & Sizzix 'Snowflakes' folders, and added a sentiment (also by Penny Black)...everything is popped up on 3D foam for a little dimension...but it still fits through the 'normal' stamp slot on my Post Office measure!
