Let it Snow

Hi Bloggers.

I'm demoing at Grafton Crafts in Kimbolton today 10am till 4pm. If you're in the area, please stop by to say hello.

Here's today's card -

 For the background, I used a paper from Phill Martin's Christmas Holly 8 x 8 Paper Pad. I added some PM Frosty Aqua Sparkle Texture Paste to 2 of the corners through one of the designs in the Christmas Corner Mask.

I cut the Spellbinders Reindeer & Sleigh Die Set using the plain side of another paper from Phill's pad. I rubbed PM Frosty Aqua Gilding Wax over the embossed design in the die cuts.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Peace on Earth Stamp Set using PM CS Frosty Aqua Colour Cloud Blending Ink applied with a Smoothie. I cut it out using Spellbinders 5 x 7 Matting Basics B Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.
