Hi everyone, it's Emma here and I'm sharing my final post of this year and I just wanted to wish you all a very happy Christmas with this special card...
To begin with, I used an 8" square card blank and then covered the front, with a piece of pale blue card, leaving a border of the white card base showing all around. I then matted a piece of the patterned paper from Tim's Seasonal Paper Stash over the top. I added a piece of seam binding across the front of the card and attached a bow to the strip of ribbon, together with some paper string, also tied into a bow.
Next, I stamped the image of the snowman onto a piece of white card and painted it using a combination of Distress Markers and Distress Inks, which I'd applied to my craft matt and then lightly misted with water to give a watercolour paint. I then blended the edges of the card with Old Paper DI. I added a piece of the Frosted Film over the top and matted the completed image onto a further piece of the pale blue card and attached it, next to my bow on the front of my covered card base.
I used a piece of chipboard to die cut the word "Snow" using the WordPlay die and then added Glossy Accents over the top before covering each letter with the Crushed Glass Glitter. Once the letters are dry, I added these to my card.
I then used some of the papers in the pad, to die cut various sized Snowflake Rosettes and gave each of the rosettes a good coating of Rock Candy Cracklepaint. Once the paint was completely dry, I attached the completed rosettes onto my card front, adding small cabouchon pearls to three of the snowflakes and then Chit Chat stickers onto the fourth.
Finally, I completed the card with some Candi in the four corners.
...and here's a list of what I used to create my card:
Sizzix/Tim Holtz Alterations Die ~ WordPlay
Silver Crushed Glass Glitter ~ from my stash
Seam Binding from my stash
So, that's about it from me for today, and for this year...I can't thank everyone enough for all your love and support that you have shown to me, and to the whole team throughout 2012!
We really do appreciate all your comments and your visits!!!
All that's left for me to say is...
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
See you in 2013...
Love Emma xx
