... well, they're not falling yet! But, according to the weatherman, we might get a few by late this afternoon. However, at the moment we have blue skies and sunshine - so much nicer than yesterday. I have a Christmas card to share with you this morning:
Stamps: Uniko Studio - Stunning Snowflakes, Peace on Earth
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Bermuda Bay
Dies: Die-namics - Fishtail Flags Layers Stax #2; Uniko Studio - Snowflakes; Spellbinders - Rectangles Sm (S4-130) #5
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Real Red, Bermuda Bay
I have seen so many wonderful cards made using Beverley's latest stamps and in these colours from Dynamic Duos - DD#77 too. I was struggling to come up with something a bit different, and then I saw the new Deconstructed Sketch - DS126, from Jen Shults. This card came together so quickly after that!! I cut strips of card in turquoise and red and adhered them directly to the card base. I cut a rectangle and stamped the snowflakes in Versamark, heat embossed with clear powder and, while still in the die, sponged on some colour to reveal the snowflakes. I die cut a couple of the smallest snowflakes and inlaid the star in red. I cut a flag and stamped this super sentiment in red. The inside is simply a mat of turquoise card, with a snowflake and sentiment on the white panel. As this card has embossing on it, I'm also submitting it to this week's CAS-ual Fridays - CFC119 challenge. I'm really pleased with this card.
Before I go off and do some house stuff, I realise that I have welcomed some new followers - so pleased you joined me. Say hello and welcome to Tracey and Jane. And that's all for now - see you soon.
