Woosh! Did you see that?? That was yet another week wooshing past us and pushing us closer and closer to Xmas...eeekk!! I still haven't recovered from last Xmas, so this is quite frightening indeed.
However, the new challenge at Addicted to Stamps has the theme of:
This will certainly be a HUGE help in adding to my very small pile of Xmas cards. And I need ALOT this year!!
Our Sponsor for this challenge is the incredible craft company Stamplorations and they are giving a $10 gift certificate to the winner. I'm so jealous!!
So, as I mentioned I wanted to go with a Xmas theme for my card. I was actually inspired by my friend Sandie who recently used this same stamp set. Her card looked so amazing I thought maybe if I use it, my card might look as good (here's hoping....):
Its been so cold here of late (especially the frosts in the mornings) I wanted to try and capture the icy look of the frost itself. Using vellum seemed like the answer!
I cut a piece of vellum the same size as my card front and stamped and heat embossed in white two sizes of snowflakes. I cut thin pieces of double-sided tape and attached to the back of the large snowflakes so I could stick it to the card base. After stamping and heat embossing the sentiment in silver, I fussy cut the 'snow' and popped it up on foam tape, as well as the 'let it' piece. A few tiny clear sequins for the glistening of the snow seemed like the perfect finishing touch.
All of the stamps used are from Uniko Studio 'Big and Bold - Snow'. The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.
