Hi everyone and a warm welcome to my new follower Megan. I hope you're all having a great week.
There's another challenge at Crafting by Designs and it's a Get Ready For Christmas challenge.
The wonderful sponsor for this challenge is:-
Prize - Choice of 3 single digis
This is my first Christmas card of the year and my first ever shaker card. Here I'm using Carl the Snowman
All shook up.......
6" x 6" card blank- Craftwork Cards.
Stamps- Robyn's Fetish Carl the Snowman digi. Card-io Christmas Scenery 3 and Winter Woods.
Sentiment- Clearly Besotted Sweet Little Sentiments.
Die- Tattered Lace Essentials Squares.
Inks- Memento Tuxedo Black. VersaColor Evergreen, Atlantic and Boysenberry.
Pens- Copic Ciao and Sketch.
Acetate- Grafton Crafts.
Other Stuff- Glossy accents ( on snowman's hearts), DecoArt Glamour Dust in crystal, stars from stash, Sakura Gelly Roll pen in white and Stampendous Fun Flock in white ( on the pom, poms at end of snowman's scarf)
The photos don't show my inking of the sky and frame very well but it is there, I promise. My first attempt at making it a shaker card ended up with me covered in glitter as I'd decided to add glitter in with the stars but when I shook it the glitter decided to stick itself, by static I think, to the acetate making the children on the sledge look like they were out in a blizzard! Also there must have been a very small gap in my foam letting the glitter out all over my clothes :D. As I hadn't any more stars I sat for over an hour picking them out of the glitter with a pair of tweezers :( So this card was attempt number two, not perfect but I'm happy enough with it.
Well that's all from me today. Why not get ahead with your Christmas cards and enter the challenge at Crafting by Designs which runs from today 15th June until 21st June.
Sending you all a big hug,
