Todays card has been created from two of the new Pink Gem Christmas stamps, Ive used the Mary with her baby and Joseph stamps. Ive stamped them together onto a piece of white card then coloured them with my copic pens, after which I cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted the image onto a piece of dark blue pearlescent card. The greeting was also stamped, cut and mounted in the same way.
Ive made a 7.75"x 7.75" card this time, because the piece of dark blue pearlescent card Ive used for the first mount wasnt quite big enough for the usual size I use, Ive used again one of the Nitwit downloads papers, this one has a snowflake pattern all over it. The second layer is a piece of star patterned vellum on which I have used the snowflake embossed border punch of Martha Stewart, Ive actually used a embossing ball on the snowflakes just to make them stand out a bit more. Ive stuck this to another mount of pale blue pearlescent card on which I have stuck another patterned paper, this one has greetings printed all over it, before sticking this to the base layer I have put a ribbon across the seam between the paper and vellum.
The third mount is another piece of the same pearlescent card but this time I have run it through my cuttlebug with the snowflake embossing folder, then I have stuck it on top of the layers. The stamped mounted image was then stuck on to the middle of the card, and the greeting was stuck to the bottom right hand side of the card.
To finish of I have punched out some snowflakes, dipped them in glue and then into Twinklets, these are rather large glitter crystals and they really do sparkle, Ive even put some stickles on the star to.
