Snowy Christmas Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good weekend. Yesterday our daughter actually bought a wedding dress and now it is hanging up in our spare bedroom. Today we are taking our daughter back to her house ready to fit  some beading round the new rabbit room so the bunnies can go home next week.

I was a bit naughty and treated myself to a subscription to Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine. This month the free gift was a snowflake die, a snowflake embossing folder and some stamps. Not bad really. I used the gift to make this card.


I created the background on watercolour card with a mix of Brushos, Pixie Powders and Distress ink. Once it was dry I stamped one of the snowflake stamps in Perfect Medium over the background and dusted it with gold mica powder. Then I stamped the same stamp with Cobalt Archival. I cut the die seven times out of white pearl card. 


I used the Sue Wilson Pireced flag dies to create the flag. Then I used another stamp from the set for the sentiment.  


Here you can see the detail of the die. In the magazine there is a rather nice ornament made with this die. I might have a go at making some.


I was very pleased wtih how this card turned out.


Enjoy the rest of the weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
