Let it Snow

Hi Bloggers.

I'm at Coleman's in Rushden today demoing a bunch of Sue Wilson's Christmas Dies and some od the co-ordinating stamps. If you're in the area, please stop by - there's other demonstrators there too today.

Here's one of the samples for today -

An all white affair!

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Snowflake Lattice A4 Embossing Folder.

I cut a frame using Sue's Classic Adorned Noble Die Set and then spread some Cosmic Shimmer Polar White Sparkle Texture Paste through the Snowflake Flurry Mask. Now, this would be easier to pop the texture paste through the mask onto some card, leave to dry and then die cut - lesson learned!

I cut the various layers in Sue's Peeking Snowflake Die Set out of Coconut White Card.

I popped some Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card and then cut 3 trees from Sue's Winter Trees Die Set. I peeled off the backing and added Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Snow.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White 8mm Pearls to the corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.

  23. Hello Julia.

    I don't think anyone can fail with a white on white card. I think I need the Snowflake Flurry Mask. Thanks for the tip about cutting second, the centre would always make a great mat. I can imagine the sparkle is lovely. Thanks for sharing.

    Have a great demo day.

    Best wishes.
