This post should have gone up yesterday but I came down with the dreaded lurgy in the wee small hours of Saturday and was in no fit state to do anything all weekend. Happily, today is better and I'm feeling up to posting again. So, to celebrate I'm here with the first CCC card of 2019 with the theme of snowflakes set by Christine.
- a 5" square card base made from smooth white card trimmed to measure 10" x 5" and folded in half
- snowflake patterned paper from the Kate Knight Christmas collection paper stack cut to leave an edge margin of an eighth of an inch. The paper pack was a freebie from Quick Cards Made Easy in 2010 - 8 years and there's still a few sheets left!
- two white die cut snowflakes, bought ready-cut in the years before I acquired my first die-cutting machine ... now that is a long time ago!
- distress ink, Peacock Feathers, used to edge paper and greeting
- VersaMark Watermark Pen, Stampendous Crystal Transparent embossing powder and teal coloured glitter - all used to add the glitter finish to the snowflakes. This was a messy business but well worth it as the effect is a glittery loveliness that unfortunately doesn't show up well in the photograph.
- one brad with aqua gem used to clip the two snowflakes together before adhering to the card front.
- the greeting made from a snippet of smooth white card, the greeting stamp from Penny Black's Wonder Collection set, the distress ink and an oval punch from Stampin' Up
I would like to submit this card to the following challenges too:
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge #343
CHNC challenge 419 - optional theme upcycle or use something old
The ladies in our Christmas Card Club will have published their first card of the year yesterday. We make a Christmas card every two weeks and post it on our own blogs - see the list of links on the sidebar to the right.
