A Christmas card today.
Sorry about the glare and shadow - my photography skills are rubbish! I started by making the card to cut the snowflakes from - it is watercolour card, water, three colours of Brushos and lots of Abominable Snowman Glimmer Mist. I sprayed the card first, added the Brushos, more water, then the Glimmer Mist, more Brushos and let it dry naturally. I ended up with four A4 sheets as before the first two coloured sheets dried, I pressed clean sheets of watercolour card onto them to pick up some of the colour.
I cut the snowflakes out using Sizzix Tim Holtz Paper Snowflakes dies, I love this set! The spotty embossed background is made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and I had cut the panels to make four cards and embossed the first one before I realised the embossing area was shorter than the panel! The panels were the perfect size for the card bases I had already made so I decided to use the little un-embossed strip to stamp my sentiment - problem solved! I glued the snowflakes to the embossed panel, the panel to the base card them added little blue stones to the snowflake centres for bling. On two of the cards I rotated the panel and put the sentiment at the top. Four more Christmas cards done - Yay! These were really quick and simple to make which is fab for batch making.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
