Christmas Frost


Hi and Good Morning :)  Today I am sharing a frosty christmas card created using some amazing, quick and easy Cheery Lynn Designs Dies!

I started off with a blank 6 x 6 inch card base and added a piece of pearl and silver vellum for my base.  I then cut the gorgeous Winter Neighbourhood Border and shadowed it with a piece of ice blue paper.  The pretty corners were created using the Holly Corner die, sticking some icy pearls for the berries. 

I coloured my LOTV image with PM's and FM's and glittered the snow and highlights.  The image was layered on Scalloped square stackers and Horizon boutique stacker, and I added the adorable Santa Sleigh & Reindeer.  This is just so delicate and sweet!

For a finishing touch I added a lacey Snowflower on the corner of the image, and the Christmas sentiment at the bottom.

All dies used on this card are:

B323 - Winter Neighbourhood
B184 - Holly Corner
B186 - Christmas sentiment
B326 - Santa's Sleigh and Reindeer
DL253 - Horizon Square Boutique Stackers
XL-2 - Scalloped Square Nesting Dies
L-1 - Silver Square Stackers
DL226 - Snowflowers 2


Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope you find time to join us in our weekly challenge, where this week our theme is 'Halloween!'. Boo!

Have a smashing week!,
