Stop Here!

Hi Bloggers.

I have a Christmas Card for you today -

For the background, I used a paper from Phill Martin's Frosted Essentials 8 x 8 Paper Pad. It doesn't really show up on here but I did randomly stamp the large snowflake stamp from the Justrite Holiday Magic Stamp Set over the paper using Phill Martin CS Frosty Sky Colour Cloud applied with a Smoothie. I also edged the paper with Frosty Sky Colour Cloud.

I used a strip from the reverse side of the patterned paper and applied PM CS Frosty Sky Sparkle Texture Paste through part of the star corner from the Christmas Corner Mask. Actually, becauce I didn't want to wait twice for the paste to dry, I cut the strip in half so that I could 2 both ends in the same session.

I cut the Spellbinders 5 x 7 Holly Frame out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die with Frosty Sky. I cut the little poinsettia die in the set out of a strip of plain paper from the pad twice, inking through the die with Frosty Sky. I popped a Craft Consortium Pearl in the centre of each and added themto the corners of the frame.

I dusted the frame with my Anti-Static Bag and stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Holiday Magic Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder.

I cut both the dies from the Spellbinders Reindeer & Sleigh Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I rubbed PM CS Frosty Sky Gilding Wax over the Sleigh.

I double embossed the reindeer with PM CS Frosty Sky Embossing Powder.
I assembled the card as shown adding some PM CS Frosty Sky Twinkles around the edges of the background paper and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
