Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me, I really appreciate it! Not long to go now till Christmas - Yay! I have two more cards to make and have posted the ones to go abroad. Still have to write all the others though. This Christmas card is for my Brother and Sister in Law - they gave me a voucher for my birthday and I used part of it to buy the Twinkle Die and Stamp set I used on it. I haven't posted it to them yet but I am pretty sure they don't look at my blog!
I used a Brusho Background that I already had. The silver is a Pixie Powder I had used alongside the Brushos. The snowflakes are cut from snippets of a thick white paper which has a sheen to it using Tim Holtz Sizzix Mini Snowflake dies. Twinkle is cut from a Sheena Douglass die and the stamp I used for the sentiment is from a coordinating Sheena stamp set. I stamped it on a snippet of the Brusho background that I had left over, with Versamark and embossed with white detail powder - cut apart and edged with a purple Promarker. The snowflakes are dotted with lots of glitter - as are the stamped and die cut sentiments. The glitter really twinkles but you can't see it too well in the photo. I have also dotted some white blizzard Nuvo drops in the background. I love the Twinkle die and think it will go perfectly with my fairy stamps too!
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Cuttlebug Mania - Let it Snow - Must use a manual die cutting machine - I used my Sizzix Big Shot.
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Use Snippets.
That's Crafty - Tis The Season.
Bizzy Becs - Anything Goes.
Try It On A Tuesday - Twinkle Twinkle.
Thank you again for visiting me! Have a wonderful week, stay warm and safe if you have snow. Here in Bournemouth we have no snow but it is very cold, although we do get it much milder here in the south than elsewhere. I would like some snow though!
Take care! Christine xxx
