Here I am back today on a busy Saturday.We have already been out to the shops and got back. Most of the Christmas shopping is done now. My husband is doing lots of Christmas jobs and I have just found a little bit of time to myself.
This card started with the topper. I was lucky enough to win some Kanban toppers in a draw on Bev Lowe's blog - thank you. It was such a beautiful topper it inspired the rest of the card. I thought it would be good to enter the Crafty Musketeers Challenge 20 Use Bling and Delicious Doodles Non Traditional Christmas Challenge.
The finished card is 8" x 8". The background was created by stamping different sized snowflake stamps with CS Perfect Medium and heat embossing, one at a time, with silver glitter, clear and white embossing powder.
I made the frame with a Spellbinder corner die cut four times in silver mirror card (which is really difficult to photograph).
The final touch was to add a bow made with the My Craft Studio bow maker which I must say is very easy to use. I decorated the knot of the bow with snowflake made with two Spellbinders dies and i placed a dazzler in the centre.
As something a little different I thought I would share the chocolate vanilla marble cupcakes my daughter made earlier this week. We didn't get to try any as they were for a friend's birthday. We did get to lick the icing bowls (role reversal) which tasted delicious.
Well that is all for today. Present wrapping is beckoning me as I
type. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
