Christmas & Snowflakes

Happy Wednesday! Wow. I can't believe it is mid week already. I did some Christmas Shopping last night and just have a couple more things to pick up then I can get my box in the mail to my family in California. In between the shopping, I had a chance to finish up this card I started a couple of days ago. I had a minor mishap when working on this card.  When I opened my jar of gamsol to begin my blending, I spilled some solution on the card. I thought for sure it was ruined. I decided to go to bed and deal with it in the morning. When I woke up this morning, it was like the spill never happened. It dried up perfectly. I was so happy, I thought for sure I was going to have to start from scratch!

Heather over at Lacy Sunshine is being very generous this month. Typically you need to participate in her last challenge to get a freebie for next challenge, but she is offering this cutie up to everyone this month. Pop over to her blog to see what you need to do to get this cutie.  Additionally, if you use "Flurry" in her current challenge, she will give you another freebie called "Willow" and you also get to be put in her drawing for a $30 image voucher.

I am going to a holiday party this Saturday with the group that I make cards with. We are having a secret gift exchange, so I plan on giving this card along with the gift. Hopefully it will be a hit.


Here is what I did:

  • Used turquoise blue for my card base and cut the corners with my fancy scissors
  • Matted image on blue card stock and matted that onto glitter card stock
  • embellished hair with baby white pearls and drops with rhinestones from recollections
  • used drops of dimensional magic to bring out drops on image
  • Punched out snowflakes with silver glitter paper
  • added silver snowflake and silver brads
  • Sentiment is from Just Rite Cling Stamps - Christmas Trimmings
  • colored image using Artist Loft pencils and gamsol blending solution


This card was suppose to be for a future challenge on one of the DT I am on, but I want to make sure I get my freebie. Oh well, guess I will just have to make another card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
