A red car for Christmas

Finally. A Christmas card made. I treated myself to the fun car die set from Tim Holtz before Christmas, I made a couple of last minute cards with it, but didn't blog them. This card is fresh out of my craft room.

I made the background with a blue Distress Oxide ink. I used my most used stamp set, and also my favorite one, from Hero Arts, stamping the the snowflakes and the tree line with white ink also from Hero Arts. Then I stamped the trees a second time with green DI. Another favorite used on this card is the dymo sentiment teamed up with a die cut Merry from the die set used. I love all my stitched dies, here I've used a hill one. And I finally got to use one of my much loved, but oh so tricky to use washi tapes.

This card is for:
Rudolph Days challenge - January
Try It On Tuesday - Fire and Ice
Allsorts - Old Favourites
My Time to Craft - Transport
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - Anything Goes Christmas

It's great how you matched the washi tape with the Tim's car, Pia!! You achieved a fabulous effect! The inked background is very detailed with those stamps and the stitched hills compliment the scene perfectly! Well done!!

The tree line looks splendid with the snow shadow behind the green with the stitched snow drifts. Love the falling snowflakes with this '50-s boat of a car'. I can remember when the USA cars had this shape. Love the silver-y bumpers and chrome. Also a cute accompanying border to the design. This is just retro fun! TFS & Hugs
