Peaceful City Scene

Hello again!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenge over at PTI, Gold Dipped Die Cuts.

Loved working with this stamp and die set, City Scene.  I think I am starting to get the hang of it.  Each building is stamped twice onto the die cut, they are clear stamps so this makes it quite easy to do.  Mine are not perfect, yet I still like their look. 
 I also took the small snow/star stamp and added itty bitty snowflakes falling quietly on the city.  I also added some Sakura Clear Star Glitter Pen to the snow to make it sparkle and glisten.  

The sentiment is a One-Liner Die Cut, which is the die I chose to dip in gold embossing powder and heat.  Looks really awesome, totally hi-lights the word.  I hope to remember to use this technique more when making Christmas cards.  A couple of pieces of matching thin green ribbon.  The base is all popped up for dimension. 
Thanks for popping in!
