First Xmas Card for Sundays with Santa on Facebook

Good Morning Crafters, I was given a card at Christmas very similar to this design and it intrigued so much that I thought I would try the layout myself. The first hurdle was track down the stamps and they turned out to be Hobby Art Stamps and Caio stamps.
I firstly punched out a circle out of card to create the background and with the tree stamp I stamped it across the bottom of it, afterwards I placed the man and his dog at the bottom on the right.
I then drew a faint circle in pencil and with a bare tree stamp also from Caio I stamped it and secondary stamped it around the circle to create a aperture.
To finish of I stamped a sentiment in the bottom left hand corner. I also used a glue pen and glitter to create snow and a bit of sparkle to create a illusion of snow.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Gorgeous creation, Shirley! I love the hint of color as the sun rises! We don't ever have this clean, beautiful snow, but we do have that golden hued sky as the sun emerges! It's always a peaceful, awe-inspiring few moments to breathe in the start of a new day. Thanks for playing in the {Our Crafty Corner Challenge}! Hope to see more of your pretty projects again soon!

This is really beautiful and so gentle looking. It could be a birthday card for a man if he is a winter baby. I love it
