Good morning folks and a happy bank holiday Monday to everyone in the UK, I'm starting the day with a little Christmas spirit (not that sort lol) and another card made with the gorgeous new Christmas stamps from Chocolate Baroque, 'The Gift of Christmas'
The snowflake background was a quick and easy one using Chipped Sapphire distress ink to stamp the snowflakes onto white card and then using tumbled glass and a little more chipped sapphire around the edges. The next layer was made using a mask, embossed with my cuttlebug and distressed using the same distress inks, this time with the addition of a little broken china distress ink too.
To create the focal image I inked the snowflake stamp up with all three colours of distress ink and stamped onto some white card, die cut the shape and then triple embossed. I added a sprinkle of clear holographic embossing powder to the middle layer of embossing powder, this gives a beautiful shimmer. Its hard to capture in a photo but hopefully you can see it a little better in this photo
I've matted the triple embossed image on another die cut shape, this time inked with chipped sapphire distress ink and added some beautiful periwinkle Maya road ribbon and added some tiny dots of stickles for some extra sparkle.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge: one colour plus white
Anything goes: Make your own background
Deep Ocean: Deep blue
Holly Jolly Christmas: Monochromatic Christmas
Just keep on creating: Christmas
Its lovely to have an extra day off work and I'm going to make the most of it with lots of crafting and plenty of lazing around lol,
Thanks for popping by
