I’ve been doing a fair bit of skating around in the last week or two, only it’s been on four wheels, not a real skate in sight! We’ve been having a really yucky Winter so far, and have another Polar Vortex sitting over us again for a couple of days, more of that to come too apparently.
Anyway, don’t berate me for making Christmas cards still, it’s actually only my second one this year, I’m behind already lol. Perhaps I really should get my skates on!!
The image is LOTV Skating Along and I coloured it with Prisma Pencils and glitter, lots of glitter. I also stamped a snowflake from a PB clear set in Memento Summer Sky ink (oh the irony!!) and added some blue ribbon and matted it on to kraft card. The DP’s are digital. The spotty background is from the Digital Freebies site from the Boyish Paper Pack, and the snow paper was a free Sizzix download. I edged everything with DI Faded Jeans. The snowy paper was matted on to blue card and that been edged with a Martha Stewart Icicles punch, blue and brown glittered ribbon was added before it was stuck down. The sentiment is also LOTV from the Christmas Grungy Messages set. It was stamped in Memento Bahama Blue and matted on to kraft card.
The big snowflake is a Joy!Crafts die, but what a palava, seven attempts to get something resembling a decent cut, I was very disappointed with that, the middle section and one tiny bit of one of the snowflake notches just wouldn’t cut all the way through. But I got there in the end! My final touch was a few small, and one large, pearls.
