Its a gorgeous day here today, so its seemed it a bit odd making this winter-white card :) however I struggled on (lol) and so this is my card inspired by the Sugar Nellie - PCP forum challenge. I was wanting to get a few more cards made before my studies resume this week.
The challenge was pretty self-explanatory, and I really, really enjoyed making this. Sometimes the most brilliant ideas are the simple ones, so thanks Fiona for the inspiration for this card. I wont be making many christmassy cards for challenges as I found I have a box of about 200 (ahem) ready made for Christmas in the cloakroom! ;) and my xmas craft stash is still boxed up and out of reach.
I used a Sugar Nellie stamp called 'snowflake' which is totally gorgeous, and followed the sketch on the Bunny Zoe Crafts Blog which I really liked the look of.
I dry embossed the white panels, and edged with stickles. I used 3 different types of ribbon, silver vellum and white card snowflakes (also edged with stickles) and I hand-stitched the back panel with silver thread. I coloured this lightly with pro-markers and also stickled the image. Its quite a bit more glittery than it looks.
