All that.

This is one of the cards I sent off to Australia for a swap I did back  in October. It is safely delivered now so I can show it to you. We had to make two cards with glitter on.
The card design is one that I saw being demonstrated on Create and Craft and this is my version as it is quite hard to watch and write the instructions down at the same time.( No multi tasking for me!)
This is the front  of the card.
The snowman topper and stripy strips (try saying that when you have drunk a few)
is by Kanban and called 'Snowman Scenes - Blue '.
Blue Glitter card snippets in my stash.
(I have two uncut sheets left which I am keeping for a rainy day!!)
Pale blue cardstock also from my snippets stash.
Silver snowflakes are Peel Offs by  Woodware.
Inside of card.

The front flips over to reveal a space for the sentiment or message.
As this is a swap it has been left blank.

 Side ways view.
You can just see the front flipped over to the back.
The card actually does stand up ok on its own with the side flaps tilted out at an angle.

I love the fun snowman images and creative folds on this pretty card! The glitter looks lovely with the blue colors!!

MaryH said...

Awesome card with the fab snowman & all that glittery loveliness. I'm so impressed with the folds you did here...Gosh, that is just great, and so interesting. Wish we could get those UK craft shows! You did a wonderful job on this card, so very pretty. Hope the cold is not messing up your recovering back problem. Hope we don't get that extreme cold in our area (and no I can never convert Celsius to Farenheit!..but it sounded BRRRRR!) TFS & Hugs.

This is the neatest card. I've never seen one with folds like that. Love the blue glitter too. This is outstanding (no pun intended!).

Di said...

Oh you clever little sausage Mrs A! LOVE this card and am wondering if it's a 'never ending card' wot you keep flipping? Had me nose almost through the screen and can't decide - whatever Missus, it's great!

Hugs, the other old crock

Karen Petitt said...

Gorgeous card and so clever too! Not surprised you have hidden away one of these - that snowman is gorgeous.
I am not good at folding cards into specific shapes or multi folds - absolutely useless I am, so I love it when I see other crafters have made them lol! xx

Ali said...

Beautiful card with so many different layers.
