A Christmas card......


Just a very quick post to show one of the cards I have made over the past week....

I've used the lovely Pickle the Penguin stamp from Wild Rose Studio coloured with my ProMarkers, free papers from Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine and lovely rich red glitter paper which I have cut with a Marianne snowflake die.

I'm submitting this card to the magazine as a 'First Past the Post Entry'......hope it gets printed.....

That's all for now, bed is calling!    xx

Icy Angel

Hi, I've finally found some time to use some of my crafty bits bought at the NEC last week!!

This card uses the gorgeous Lili of the Valley Icy Angel image which I've coloured with Promarkers and highlighted with stickles and a glaze pen. The image was cut out using a nestie die and faux stitching added around the edge along with some ink. The background paper was made using a snowflake embossing folder, inked over with one of my new adirondack ink pads and more faux stitching added around the edge. The large snowflake was cut from some silver glitter card using my fab new Marianne die. The icicle trim is also a Marianne die to which I've added a strip of the silver glitter card together with the winter wishes sentiment which comes with the main image, I've stamped this onto shrink plastic and used an old cuttlebug slider die to cut out. The snowflake was also cut from shrink plastic with a cuttlebug die and then a gem added.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
