One that nearly got away!

You may have noticed but my posts for Bugaboo’s week of Christmas Chaos is missing one! I came across the photograph the other day so thought I would share it with you today.

Materials used:SAM_2505(watermarked)
Bugaboo Stamps – AKV Winter – snow shoe
stamping card

Copic pens
red and green card
shimmer paper
red snowflake ribbon
snowflake die
shimmer paper
acrylic greetings stamp
black archival ink pad
white A5 card blank

Print out the image,  colour in with Copics and trim to size.

Mat and layer  the image onto the red and green card leaving narrow boarders each time.

Attach a length of ribbon on the left side of the card blank then position the topper and glue in place.

Die cut a snowflake from the shimmer paper and attach to the card.

Stamp the greeting in black at the bottom of the card.

The challenge for this card was a bingo one and the image was provided as a freebie. I chose to do the line which included snowflake, ribbon and 3 layers.

Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
