Christmas is fun don’t you ‘snow’?


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

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Christmas Card.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.

Just look at the delight in Christmas Fun by Crafty Sentiments Designs‘ face!She’s been coloured with Polychromos Pencils onto Desert Storm Kraft card.I then ran her through a dotty embossing folder (poor girl!) and coloured over each one with a white gel pen to give the impression she’s sitting enjoying a flurry of snow 🙂 Sadly I think this great folder is now discontinued 😦 I’m so glad I managed to track one down.She’s been cut and layered with some Crealies stitched square dies.After cutting the border at the top I sprinkled over some white chunky embossing powder.I did the same to the wooden snowflake at the bottom.I was lucky enough to discover the stitched ribbon on one of my forays to my local craft warehouse whilst looking for stuff to make NEXT years’s Christmas card with – that’s right!It’s a pretty good match for the kraft cardstock don’t you think?The sentiment stamp was another find and a true bargain at just over £1 after discount.This time a circular a Crealies stitched die has been used to cut it out.I had as much fun making this as she appears to be having in the snowfall!
