A second card from the Pink Gem Xmas Stamps


Good Morning all, today Ive used another of the new Pink Gem Christmas stamps for this card, this one is Milly and her Snowman. Ive stamped her out onto white card and again used my copic pens to colour her, then punched her out with one of the larger Nestabilitie dies, and created a mount for it by drawing around the edge of this particular size onto a piece of mauve pearlescent card, rather than using the next one up it would have been to big for it. Ive then stuck them together with some foam tape. The greeting is another stamped image also mounted onto a piece of the same card to.

The base card is my usual 8"x 8" size white card, and onto this I have mounted up for the first layer a piece of the same mauve card, and have used one of the Xmas Nitwit design papers, this one has fir trees all over it in a patchwork design. The second layer is a striped design in mauve, green and white, but Ive used the star border punch on this and then with the third layer, which is a further piece of the same mauve card Ive stuck another of the designs and wrapped a piece of ribbon around it, and attached the two together onto the base card.

Ive then stuck my mounted image in the centre, and the greeting to the left hand side at the bottom. To finish of I have punched out multi Snowflakes with my punches, and moulded them with my ball tool punched a hole in the centre and threaded a brad through the centre with a snowflake charm hung from the back. I also before sticking them to the card, Ive stuck some glue onto the tips and dipped them into the Twinklets to make them sparkle even more.
