Another Christmas Card

Good Evening

Today I have been busy making Christmas presents for the family, I have half of them done and need to get the other half prepared and finish off.

Tonight I decided to have a break and make a couple of Christmas Cards!  This is just one of them that I have completed.  I have used the sketch below from The Crafty Bloggers Network weekly challenge.



My base card is white square measuring 16 x 16 cm, I have matted and layered Silver Mirri card onto the base.  I took some white cardstock and embossed using my Cuttlebug snowflake folder and cut them down to 8 x 8 cm squares which I then distressed using Dew Drops Brilliance Sky Blue ink.  I matted these onto the silver.  Using my Martha Stewart snowflake dies I cut out a snowflake border and some small snowflakes.  The border I placed along the middle of the card and the small snowflakes I placed on the four corners adding a pearl to each snowflake.  From my crafty stash I took 2 swirls and distressed using Dew Drops Brilliance ink Starlite Silver.  I placed these over the right side of the card and using some white lace made a bow and added some hat pins which I coloured using my spectrum Noirs Brilliant Blue.  The Sentiment and reindeer are from Hunkydory.


Thank you for stopping by today.
Hugs
