Celebrate the Wonders of Christmas

Hi Bloggers.

Here’s today’s card –
For the background, I spread some CS Egyptian Blue SparkleTexture Paste through the Christmas Quilt Mask onto Teal Card and put aside to dry (a couple of hours). Once dry, I added a frame made from Coconut White Card cut using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and Double Pierced Squares Set B.

I cut the decorative snowflake die from the JustriteSnowflake and Tag Dies out of Coconut White Card twice. I glued them together, offsetting them to form a full circle. 

I cut the inner die out of Coconut White Card and double embossed it using Clear Perfect Medium and CS Blue ZirconBrilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I added this to my snowflake circle and popped an 8mm White Pearl to the centre.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Inside and OutsideChristmas Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Blue Zircon Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a die from the Joy Oval Frame Dies

I double embossed 4 x 8mm White Pearls by pressing them into Clear Perfect Medium and embossing them with the Blue Zircon Powder.

I assembled the card as shown adding some mats of Coconut White and Teal Card. 

Thanks for stopping by.
