Hi there. As I said in the above post this is the first of two cards I have just made for Rudolph Day. I have made separate posts of the cards because it makes it easier if I want to enter any challenges. This card was made using a die designed by Sue Wilson over at Creative Expressions called Framed Noel and it can be used with or without the outside edge.
I cut the die twice using snippets of dark blue and the turquoise card, with which I cut out just the centre piece, and layered it on top of the dark blue. I then cut a piece of silver mirri card with the outside edge so that it fits exactly behind. I then found a snippet of white card and embossed using a freebie snowflake embossing folder which actually is just a strip but by moving it down the card another two times it filled the piece of card nicely and didn't seem to leave any lines which was lucky. I then coloured it using Adirondack - Stonewashed and Distress Inks - Peacock Blue and Shaded Lilac, and then a bit of Faded Jeans on just the snowflakes to accentuate them a bit more. I finished by using a Sakura silver sparkle pen round the edge and in the centres of some of the snowflakes to add some extra interest but it doesn't show up much in the photo. I then layered it on a white square card.
Thank you for stopping by.
I am entering this card in the following challenge:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Week 152. The aim is to use up our snippets/leftover bits.
Two great RD cards Pat, I love the way you used the Santa and sleigh stamp in the other card with all the lovely glittery silver, but this is the one I like best. The die cut framed noel is fabulous and I like the embossed snowflakes too.
Beautiful card Pat! I'm off to check out the other Rudolph Day one :) Never be afraid to just point to one card in a blog post as a snippets entry - do whatever suits you best!
Beautiful card! Love the die...it is really striking and the way you embossed the snowflakes is lovely!
Another gorgeous one Pat. This is a SWilson I've not seen. It made a really stunning card & such sparkles behind it with the paper you chose. Love the snowflakes but that Noel is just wonderful. TFS
