And So It Begins!!!

The 'C' word is starting to get mentioned an awful lot in conversations now at the shop so I thought I had best knuckle down and get some cards designed seeing as we have our first totally Christmas workshop on Thursday.
This one just sort of fell together all by itself really.......lucky for!!! I had this piece of Basic Grey paper on my desk which inspired the design.

Swirl is Bazzill cardstock cut with a Sizzix die. Tag is Sizzix too and has been covered with the reverse side of the paper used on the card. Stitching is hand drawn and then a pale wash of Adirondack Stream has been added around the edges and finished off with Stickles.
The snowflakes are stamped using an image from a new clear stamp set by Kars......a lovely little set which has the cutest snowman on it. They are stamped onto Overhead Projection Film for inkjet printers using Brilliance Moonlight White and embossed with Crystal powder. They have been cut out and attached to the tag with foam pads hidden behind the crystal centres.
Wording has been added with a tiny peg alphabet by Hampton Art which was 99p. down......gawd knows how many more to!!! Perhaps I shall feel a bit more in the mood for them once I have had my week's holiday in August.

Bye for now

  1. Sheila, another scrumptious card, the photograph doesn't do it justice, it looks so much better in 'real life'



Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
