Let it Snow

Hi Bloggers.

This card was meant to be a demo when I did the shows with the Christmas stamps -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations New Year Dove Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I popped a little Pearl Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint on my Craft Sheet. I picked some up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to 'ink' all over the embossed surface.

I stamped the 'snow' section of the Let it Snow Stamp 4 times onto Cobalt Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut them all out and glued them to the background to form borders top and bottom. I added a Small Fancy Pearl Embellishment to the centre of each border.

I stamped the image panel from the same stamp, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder. I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet on top and added Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles. I cut the panel out using scissors.

I cut a Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28 out of Cobalt card and 'inked' around the edges using a little CS Pearl Shimmer Paint.

I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Greetings Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using a Justrite Vintage Labels Four Die. I added a little Pearl Shimmer Paint around the edges.

I assembled the card as shown adding a piece of a Pearl Swirl and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cobalt around the edges.

I have spent hours in the evenings over the weekend popping some stock onto ebay. Some items are available on a Best Offer basis. I know some of you aren't all that keen on ebay but it's still the same ole me with the same ole quick dispatch so please take a look. Click on the link in the top menu bar. My Amazon Store is still open till 26th September, again there's a link in the top menu bar to go straight there.

Thanks for stopping by.
