Happy New Year’s Eve Eve! I wonder how many millions of resolutions are being thought about right now? I’m mulling over a few…….
Today’s card is another Christmas one. I made this for my niece.
- Easel card folded from 6×6 white, scalloped edge cardstock
- Blue & silver mirri card
- Dress & crown – Kanban ‘Vivienne’ stamp set
- Wings – Tim Holtz
- Spellbinders Nestabilities label & scalloped circle dies
- Ranger embossing tinsel
- Versamark & gold embossing powder
I stamped the dress on to white cardstock with Versamark, before sprinkling gold EP over it & heat setting, then colouring with Promarkers. The wings were gold embossed too & after cutting them out, I scribbled over them with a Versamark pen, sprinkled over the embossing tinsel & heat set.
Adding the blue ruffled ribbon gave a little texture to the front of the card & the sparkling snowflakes & gems from my stash give the card some Christmas bling.
I tweeted a pic of this card to one of my crafting sheroes, Dawn Bibby, earlier today & she gave it her seal of approval. Which meant a lot, as she is responsible for me getting into this cardmaking lark in the first place.
You may have noticed a new button on my sidebar. I signed up today for Effy’s Book of Days on her Wild Precious Life site. I have promised myself that I will start art journalling in 2012 & I think Effy’s project is going to be ideal.
I have one more Christmas card to share with you, so I shall return tomorrow. Until then, thanks for looking & keep crafting.
Love & light.
