Hi, welcome to my 'happy place'....

 I love when I find items/cards that I made/used a while back and had forgotten about them and this card is one example

I've called it 'faux' festive because, by adding the right sentiment,  it could be a Christmas card, or, it could also be a birthday card for someone who has a 'winter' birthday

It's an ivory, 5"x7" card, top folding, with a smaller panel of black cardstock.  I've used a spray glitter on both the base card and the panel

The scene has been stamped onto the same ivory card, but, prior to stamping, I've distressed the edges, then stamped the image and adhered to the card base then.... put it away (for at least 3 years! LOL)

To give it a bit of life I ran a glue pen on the trees and around the edge of the water then sprinkled Glitter Jewels over the adhesive.  You can see this more so on the card below.  When the light catches the 'glitter jewels' it does look lovely

So there you have my 'faux festive card' (the cards will become more elaborate in time 

 You can see more of the glitter jewels on this photograph

  1. I know what you mean about finding older stuff, I love going through a box in my back bedroom where I keep stuff I dont need, lovely card too, xxx

  2. I love this card, June - perfect, as you say, for men's cards. The layout could easily be adapted for ladies cards too so a good standby for many occasions.

  3. Hi June,
    what a wonderful card and that scene you have created is so gorgeous and very beautifully created.
    Love the glitz too.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  4. Lovely card June. Very Sparkly. Thank you.
