Even though Christmas is almost here, I am still working on Christmas Cards for on-line challenges. I figure I could still mail them before the New Year, or save them for next year.
The snowflake card was made for the Limited Supplies Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. For this challenge we were to make a card that was mostly 3/4 blue and only use one embellishment, but all the glitter we want! Yippee! I love glitter. This card is so sparkly in real life! I used cardstock colors Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy, and white, all by Stampin Up! The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye. I cut the shapes with Labels Two by Spellbinders. The main image panel is mounted up on dimensionals. I stamped the Not Quite Navy panel with versamark and then glittered it. The stamped snowflakes are from the retired Stampin Up! set 'Lace Snowflakes'. The Large snowflake is the Cuttlebug Cut and Emboss Die 'Ice Crystal' and it is covered in iridescent glitter. The sentiment is from 'Just Nutty' of Clear Dollar stamps and is embossed with silver embossing powder. A sheer blue ribbon was added for embellishment.
The Snowman card was done for the Cuttlebug #5 Challenge on Paper Craft Planet. In this challenge we were to emboss on a transparency. I used the newest snowflake embossing folder to emboss snowflakes on a piece of acetate. I then put glitter glue on the back side of it. I stamped snowflakes on a piece of Stampin Up! Bashful Blue Cardstock. I then stamped and cut out the trees and snowman from the retired Stampin Up! set 'Its Snowtime'. The trees I adhered to the Bashful Blue panel, the snowman I put outside on top of the frame. I cut the frame by using my Nestabilities by Spellbinders. More snowflakes were cut with a cuttlebug die and adhered to the outside of the card. I then added more glitter on top of those. The sentiment is mounted up on dimensionals, its from the retired Stampin Up! set 'So Many Scallops'. I finished off the card by adding a piece of ribbon for embellishment and sponging the edges with Bashful Blue ink. I used a marker to color the inside of the frame to make it stand out more.
Have a great day! Amy
