Late posting as I have a nasty bout of Cystitis
and have only just climbed down off the walls
for sufficiently long enough to sit at my laptop.
It is time again for another challenge over
at the Christmas Card Club.
This time is was for Christine to set the Theme
which is Winter Wonderland.
My thoughts went straight to silver and blues
and I knew which papers in my stash
I wanted to use. The snowflakes is actually scraps of
old magazines pages that have been painted over
and then the snowflakes stamped randomly on top.
Not by me though.
I won some stash several years ago
from a German blogger who was de stashing
and these sheets were amongst the goodies I received.
I used SU grey card to make the card base.
Then layered up with silver holographic paper
(from Hobby Craft years ago)
and my favourite Navy pearlised cardstock.
I edged round each of the blue snow flakes on the paper
with a white Gelly Roll pen and then dusted over
with Glamour Dust whilst the pen was still wet.
The Reindeer was a left over from
a Kanban topper sheet called 'Winter Reindeer.
I gave his Antlers/legs the same treatment with
the gelly roll pen and Glamour dust.
Finally I glued blue gems to the antlers
and white to the snowflakes and printed the sentiment
I tried taking a picture with the card flat so you can
see the lovely sparkle from the gems
much better IRL.
I then had the bright idea of making another card as I thought
the snowflake paper looked good as a stand alone.
This card took 3 times as long to make as it kept going wrong.
It did start out the same size as the first one! Enough said!!
Note to self. Quit when one is ahead!!
I woke up this morning and found I had missed
2 gems off the card and the Doc said I had
sparkly bits all over my nose.
Again I tried taking lying down (the card not me)
though I did feel the need to do so in a dark room afterwards
IRL it really does sparkle .
So does my nose!!!!
As I have used up loads of snippets popping over to Pixie's Crafty Workshop. #143.
P.s Hazel kindly invited me to also link up with her challenge so that's where I am off to now.
