I know by now everyone will be finished making their Christmas cards and waiting for the big day to arrive, So when I chose my theme for this fortnights challenge, I was thinking of all those other winter occasions, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries etc. So I chose....
So here is my card, using papers and image from the 'Snow Scene' folder on the Yesterday's memories CD. You can buy a copy at Ooh La La Creations Website.
I started by distressing both papers and then layering them one over the other and sticking them to an 8x8 card blank. I die cut a frame from Kraft card and added white faux stitching round the edge and placed this over the image at an angle. The image had Merry Christmas in the corner but I covered this up by adding two die cut trees, these were also originally cut from Kraft card and I had added polar white flower soft to them but having added then to the card I really didn't like the effect so painted them whilst they were stuck on with white acrylic paint the flowersoft underneath gave a really nice texture and I will be trying this happy accident again. I finished off with some white die cut snowflakes that I have glittered with clear rock candy dry stickles (this has become a firm favourite since buying a jar at the NEC back in November). I finished off with a Happy Birthday tag and added a die cut pine branch and some faux stitching.
