In truth, the day was dull, cold and misty when I started on these cards the other day, but the sun broke through just before lunch time. Please note I used the word these - made four all the same in my quest to keep ahead of the game and produce at least 12 Christmas cards each month, wahoo!!
- A6 white card blank
- SU 'Coastal Cabana' card stock
- white card stock, embossed using Crafts-Too's 'Snowflake Banner' embossing folder
- image is SU from their 'For the Birds' set, stamped in Memento 'Tuxedo Black' and coloured with Pro Markers PLUS Pro Marker clip-on ultra fine nibs. The image is so small and detailed that was a must! Little touch of silver pen on the bauble
- 'Crystal Ice' Ice Stickles for the icy ground and 'White Opal' Liquid Pearls' for the snowflakes round the image
I have to credit our playmate Eve with the ideas for the colouring, Stickles and Liquid Pearls - I remembered her lovely card using the same stamp from before last Christmas and took inspiration from that. The link will take you to her latest snowy snippets card, I love it!
I'd like to enter this into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge where it's 'Spread your Wings' this week - and also into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where it's always 'anything goes'.
I'm out playing with a friend this afternoon - she wants me to show her how to transfer images onto candles. That should be fun :)
