Infinite/Everlasting/Neverending Cozy Xmas

I've made never-ending cards before, so I just had to try my hand at another one for the current "Infinity Card" challenge at Cards und More. This time, I made a vintage Christmas card:





If you'd like to try your hand at your own Never-Ending card (also referred to as an Infinity or Everlasting card) here's a pictorial tutorial at Dawn's Stamping Thoughts, and a video tutorial by Jules from the Cards und More team.

For the bases, I used a distressed-looking double-sided DP. I inked the edges with Dusty Concord distress ink from Ranger/Tim Holtz. The "Cozy Xmas" sentiment was stamped in Vintage Photo distress ink & watermark ink and heat-embossed with holographic glitter embossing powder. The letter pieces were distressed with Dusty Concord, but the other stamped pieces were distressed with Vintage Photo. The square stamps are from Inkadinkado and the ornament stamps are from Spellinders; I colored them with Marvy embossing markers and heat-embossed them with more glitter.

The pine branches were die-cut from a olive green paper & distressed with Crushed Olive ink. The printed images on page 2 are from DPs in my Xmas stash. I just adore those cute snowpeople!
