Merry Christmas

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I spritzed some water onto a piece of Watercolour Card. I sprinkled CS Aqua Lagoon and Silver Dream Pixie Powders over and put aside to dry. Once dry, I stamped the Justrite Snowdays Background using Phill Martin CS Decadent Denim Colour Cloud applied to the stamp using a Smoothie. I edged the background with Decadent Denim and matted onto Deep Blue Card. I then added it to a Coconut White Card blank.

I cut the large snowflake die from the Justrite Snowflake & Tag Dies out of Coconut White Card twice. I double embossed them using Clear Perfect Medium and CS Frosty Dawn Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I added them to my background, offsetting them.

I cut the small die from the same set out of Deep Blue Card and added an 8mm White Pearl.
I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Large Oval Christmas Wishes Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Decadent Denim Colour Cloud. I cut it out using Justrite Joy Oval Frame Dies and edged with Decadent Denim. I cut the next sized die in the Joy Oval Frame Dies out of Deep Blue Card.

I added a 5mm White Pearl to each corner.

On the inside of my card, I stamped a sentiment from the Justrite Inside and Outside Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set using Cobalt Archival.

Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Oh wow Julia! The background is amazing - I must try these pixie powders together.
    Craft club this morning and I'm going to have a go at your suggestion to me at the backgrounds' workshop about a technique I could show crafty friends when I'm leading a demo next week.

  25. PM's Decadent Denim used to stamp over the Pixie Powder background is delecate but nevertheless very effective. In my opinion you use the blue Pixies to great effect. Thanks.
