A Card for Pink Gem Challenge
Janet at http://pinkgem-janet.blogspot.com/ is asking us to promote some of her lovely Xmas stamps by creating as many cards as we can and linking it back to her blog, so todays card has been created to do that.
I received the stamped image in a Rak and thought it would be a good idea to use it for my card, this one is "Mimi and Snowman", I should say I do have this stamp anyway. Ive coloured her with copic pens, and used Hairy Glitter from my friend Karen at http://www.craftyideasbykaz.co.uk/index.php?cPath=41_303 for the snow and the edges to the snowmans hat, its strange stuff, it has little threads in it and glitter. Ive then mounted my image onto a piece of pale blue pearlescent card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of the same blue card and one of two papers Ive used for this card, I think this was one from a magazine, though the second paper Ive used is one of Donna's papers, Ive used a snowflake punch around the edge and stuck it in the centre of the first layer.
Ive then positioned a Xmas ribbon across the bottom, and mounted my stamped image in the centre and the greeting at the bottom. After which Ive punched out three snowflakes dipped them into glue and used Twinklets glitter for the edges, I also popped a snowflake charm behind the bottom one.
