I'm late today but didn't want to miss Hazel's challenge this week - CHNC Challenge 109 - because, not only is it fun, but I think making at least one Christmas card a week is no bad thing ... it saves me stressing out at the end of the year :)
In an effort to save on the exorbitant postage Royal Mail sees fit to charge us in these hard times, this card has been kept super thin - absolutely no foam pads have been used in the making of it :)
Instead, I've used a recycled topper and added a silver embossed edging, with a tiny nod to frantage by sprinkling a little of the embossing powder around the sky. I've also added a bit of sparkle to the star just to give the picture a bit of a lift.
The base was a plain white card until it was stamped all around with a border of blue snowflakes.
The snowflake is stamped inside too, as is the greeting.
And, of course, the back is stamped too.
base: a smooth square white card
stamps: Hot Of The Press Magical Christmas stamp set
ink: Vivid Dye Inapt, Ultramarine
topper: old Christmas card cut to desired size
embossing: VersaMark and Heat It Up Silver EP
glitter: white iridescent
That's it - quick and easy for today.
Off to watch the second part of Silent Witness now.
Edited note: Oh, heck! Forgot, until Hazel reminded me, that I should add this card to her other fabulous challenge - CHNC Extra for February.
Take care all, have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting,
