Icicles is the theme set by Lorraine for the Christmas Card girls to show out next cards. I already had this card made from a work shop I had attended so I am hoping that the snowflakes are going to count as icicles otherwise I will use the trump card of Anything Goes. My shoulder is still painful so am finding it quite a task to craft for long periods or to use the big laptop. I try to get myself comfy in a chair and use my ipad instead.
Card uses all stamps by Woodware. The plaid background has been made using an embossing folder from Creative Expressions called Distressed lines. You ink up the folder with your chosen colour and place paper between the folder and emboss as normal. Re ink the folder and turn your paper 90 degrees to get the checkered pattern. The distressed effect is quite striking. I stamped an icicle stamp over the top in a random pattern. The wreath was inked using an oxide ink pad and then the red accent was added using a distress marker pen.
