.... well, not really. That seemed like a good title for this card. It's based on this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge- WMSC54 - designed by Belinda. And while I was going to make a traditional Christmas card, I ended up using blues - this week's Less is More challenge is on my mind!!!
I think the reason I ended up going with blues is because I used snowflakes as the feature images on my circle elements. I used two different snowflakes each in a different shade of blue and I added Glamour Dust to both images - after all snowflakes sparkle!! I cut out mats for both in deep blue satin mirri card, and the snowflake images were attached to the mats with dimensional tape. I was going to use real ribbon on the card, but decided to use one of Claire's fabulous borders - again in different shades of blue and both embossed with clear powder. Finally, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the text and added some holly leaves and berries to accent the sentiment. Clean, simple and reasonably quick to make.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Join Us, Around Christmastime, Half Baked Gingerbread Joy, Very Vintage Christmas
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Night of Navy
Accessories: Card and satin mirri from stash; Shimmer chalks; Clear embossing powder
I took a close-up picture of the snowflakes so that you can see the details and just how much sparkle there is on each flake! So pretty!
Before I finish - I've notice the follower counter has gone up again - now at 93 - and I'd like to say Hello and Welcome to Donna - glad you decided to join me - thanks!
That's all for now - I'm off to town this morning with Mum - we're going to have some girl time together!! Should be lots of fun! See you later. Oops I just did something to an earlier post and it pushed this one down!!
