Cold and Frosty

The current challenge at Joanna Sheen Challenge blog is "Cold and Frosty".  I chose a Humphrey's Corner decoupage image, part of a paper pad which came free with Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine recently. 

 Being a bit of a neat freak I am not keen on all the white areas around die-cut decoupage and prefer to trim them closer myself which I have done on this one.  Lots of glistening Snow Writer, and some other larger flaked glittery stuff (the name and make of which escapes me, it has been in my stash for a while but tipped into a larger box for use) make it a really sparkly card.  The background paper is from a really old QVC kit of 12" x 12" papers.  The snowball corners are glitter rub-ons and the sentiment is stamped with a versamark pad of various shades of blue giving it the blended look.  The adhesive backed pearl stars are from one of the poundshops.

Thank you for taking the time to look and for any comments you may make x

A Couple More..

Just a quick post to show two more Christmas cards for the growing pile:

An Indentz embossing folder decorated with intricate snowflake peel-offs layered on snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder background in a lovely denim coloured pearlescent paper.  Silver coloured large charm and ribbon were from a gift.

A Nellie Snellen Snowy Village embossing folder on pearl card, coloured with promarkers and glittered up.  I tried to give the effect of lit windows in the cottages.  Not sure about this one, think it looks a bit like a child has coloured it.  The silver, red and green braid trim I have for ages and struggle to use normally and the snowball trim was a recent purchase on holiday.

That's all for now, off to do some grocery shopping and visit Mum,
