let it snow

Hello friends. I know, I know. We all want better weather here in the UK and I’m talking about snow!! I’m back making Christmas cards again for this challenge, but actually having to make Christmas cards through the year for the challenges is helpful as then you have actually made some when it gets to December.

For the DT challenge this week the sponsor for trimmies CRAFT challenge #666 is DRS Designs. The theme this week is “winter”. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

So here’s a summary of the materials used to make the card:

  • Digital image
  • High tack glue
  • Base card – 300gsm
  • Coloured pencils
  • Tumbled glass distress ink
  • Snowflake border die
  • Cream shiny paper

I combined an image and a sentiment from our sponsor. The digital image is coloured with coloured pencils and cut to a square topper. I’ve then inked some shiny paper with distress ink so that it takes on a blue colour before die cutting this with a snowflake border die.

The snowflake border was cut 4 times and stuck down so that it was off the edge and framing the image. This was then mounted onto some inked card and added to the base card.

I hope that you feel inspired and it would be lovely to read you comments. Please let me know whether this has inspired you!
