Due to my mums death a week ago I have been out the posting scene for a week, so I thought youd like to see a card Ive been making during the time Ive been away. To be honest with you Ive spent most of the week making up my Christmas cards, and guess what Ive still got quite a few to make, some important ones so I suspect you may just get to see them during the next few days, before I have to go of to Sussex for my mums funeral next Monday. Before I leave this subject I want to thank all the girls who have given me so much support over this difficult time bless you, Ive really appreciated it, and to also say that my bladder infection is now on the mend, thank goodness it was extremely painful, best to avoid that one if you can.
Now my card, Ive used one of the Sugar Nellie home grown stamps, Ive stamped her onto white card and then coloured her with my copic pens, then used my Nestabilitie label die to cut her out, afterwards because I had to use the largest die, Ive laid the die onto a piece blue pearlescent card, drawn around the outside edge then cut it out with scissors, this gives you the mount to stick it to. The sentiment is one of the Hero Arts and this has also been mounted onto a piece of blue card.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card, with a first layer of the same dark blue card onto which I have stuck one of three papers that I printed for this card, these papers are by Funky Fairy Downloads, and were just right for the design I created. The first layer has a greeting all over it, and the second and third layers are reverse blue and white snowflakes, and along the edges Ive used my snowflake border punch. I then put a piece of pale blue pearlescent card through my cuttlebug with the snowflake design and wrapped a blue spotted ribbon around the middle and attached it to the back.
The mounted image was then stuck to the centre of my card with some foam tape and the greeting popped below on the right. To finish of the card Ive created several snowflakes by punching them out, and dipping them into glue before shaking diamond dust all over them, after they dried Ive scattered them around the card.
