Feeling Frosty...

Morning all, greetings from Sunny Leicester!

Firstly  a quick answer to questions yesterday, the die used for the background on yesterdays Christmas card was Spellbinders Expandable Pattern Botanical Swirls .

Todays Christmas in August card is in frosty shades of blues and white.  Again this is a very simple card with an embossed background and one, that's right just one, die cut.

The background is a Spellbinders embosability folder which I rubbed blue ink over to create the letterpress background technique.  I then added some stick on pearls in the centre of the snowflakey (is that even a word) bit.  This was matted in navy then white, then silver before foam mounting onto a sheet of PMD navy A4 card folded in half.

The topper is an old Spellbinders snowflake die (don't know which one as I bought these on eBay with no packaging) cut in white which I then inked through the die in the centre.  The sentiment is from the same set as I used yesterday which is a See Dee die set, again a bargain purchase on eBay!

Finally I draped navy and white ribbon behind the snowflake to give a different look from a bow.

Enjoy...

  6. Lovely John. Loving the navy and white. Great way of using the ribbons. If snowflakey isn't a word then it should be!

  13. Hi John. Very elegant card today, and I like the way you have drapped the ribbon, rather than tying it. Take care.
