#509 CRAFT challenge – Christmas

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this week is QKR Stampede.

I love this fun and quirky image of an elf riding along on a bauble!

I bought this tattered lace snow globe a little while ago, but haven’t really used it before, though I cut the snow globe out and it’s been sitting on my craft table awaiting a project. Does that sound familiar to others out there?

I love the effect of die cut snowflakes on a plain background too, though this time the white on white didn’t look right so I found a piece of card that I’d mopped up some blue ink with to create a subtle mottled blue background and used this to die cut the snowflakes. I’m pleased with the subtle effect the snowflakes give to the background without overpowering the main focus of the card.

The snow globe image is coloured with Chameleon pens, and the snowflake at the base of the bauble and the top of the bauble are done with a two way glue pens and some mixed gold and silver leaf. To emphasize the snow layers on the ground I’ve used some stickles. I then die cut the bottom of the bauble in white and fussy cut the tag part so the I could stamp a sentiment, and attach this with brads.

I hope you like the card!
