The middle of the night might be the time we wake up worrying about life for most of the year (well I do anyway!) but on Christmas night it's different... then, there's a touch of magic in the air. This is my take on that hour when nature seems to be holding its breath.
The trees were veramarked and clear embossed, the snow and the moon masked off and the sky sponged in before stamping the trees again, this time in StazOn ink, using my stamp-a-majig to offset them. To finish my scene, I added texture to the snow with white embossing powder and added tiny touches of Dazzling Diamonds glitter with my two-way glue pen.
The glitter helps the scene to avoid looking too sombre for Christmas (it is much more glittery in real life) but I added this really exuberant sentiment in Real Red to liven things up even more!
Here's what you'll need to make this card

My daughter was helping me cook dinner last night and was in charge of making the plum crumble. When she asked which size dish she should use, I advised her to prepare the plums first and see which one they fit in best. "Look at you," she said admiringly (or was that sarcastically?!) "You're practically a hints and tips book!"
