Snowy and sparkly

Good evening everyone

The challenge at The Ribbon Girl this week is 'make it sparkly' and here is my card for this challenge -

As you can see it is another easel card and has been made using Spellbinder's Grand decorative circles one. I have used this technique previously on a card called Anniversary wishes. If you click on the link the blog post will show you how it is done. The image is from LOTV and is called Snow Angel. It has been coloured with the following Promarkers -

  • bear - warm grey 1, warm grey2 and warm grey 3
  • coat, hat and boots - pastel blue, arctic blue, sky blue, midnight blue and icicle
  • scarf - aegan blue and french navy
  • snow - ice grey 1
I put lots of glitter on the hat and the snow. I cut the image out using the smallest Spellbinder's Grand decorative circles 1 and inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink. Once I'd removed it from the die I inked the edges with tumbled glass distress ink. The papers are from LOTV frosty Christmas paper pad and I matted and layered the next 2 sizes of the die cuts as shown. Using Die'sire snowflake die I cut several from 2 colours of glitter card and added them to the card as shown. I added blue gems from The Ribbon Girl to the centre of the snowflakes.

To create the stopper I cut a Memory Box Frostyville border from white centura pearl card and wrapped some blue velvet ribbon from The Ribbon Girl around the border. I added it to the card with foam tape. I stamped and heat embossed with silver embossing powder a sentiment from LOTV handwritten Christmas sentiments and cut out using Spellbinder's Resplendent rectangles. Whilst still in the die I inked it with tumbled glass distress ink and then added it to the stopper.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - - make it sparkly (October challenge)

Thank you for stopping by
