‘Gift’ me snow ;)


** Please click on the pic for a clearer view 🙂 **

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is everyone’s favourite Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

It seems funny making Christmas cards in the throes of Summer but when you find an image as beautiful as My Gift by Crafty Sentiments Designs it makes you feel the need.Plus the fact it takes time to create each one you really should be prepared!!She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao & Sketch Markers along with a few white gel pen highlights.For the fur on her trims Fluffy Stuff has been used and Polar White Flower Soft,for a different texture,added for snow.I do tend to stick to a basic layout and just mix it up a bit with different papers,card,images and embellishments.It does help with ploughing through with batch making.Designs are also kept simpler these days with the cost of postage!Baker’s Twine and a charm complete the card – I also know these will pass the 5mm mark and not have incur the Large Letter Stamp fee 🙂
