Another Christmas in July card

Hi everyone - I hope you're all having a great weekend,whatever you are doing.
It is still hot & muggy here so am sat here writing this with two lovely fans cooling me down. My own internal heating plus the weather is not a good combination!
To make this card I used an embossing folder on white card. I then gently inked over this with Salty Ocean DI. Stamped the sleigh & sentiment using black Archival.
Die cut 2 large & 2 smaller snowflakes from white card. I inked around these with the Salty Ocean DI. Added some blue stickles to these, the falling snow & gently spread a light layer over the sentiment.
Layered up the card onto blue then grey card, inked around the grey card.
Added the snowflakes with foam pads for a bit of dimension, added a blue gem to the centres.
Finished off with a bow.
Thanks for stopping by.
