X-Press It card
silver mirri card
My Favorite Things – X’s and O’s
black archival ink pad
A4 snowflake embossing folder
A5 card blank1
Distress Oxide ink pads
The image is printed on X-Press It card and coloured with Copics, the background is water coloured with diluted Distress Oxide ink in blues. When dry the image is trimmed and matted onto silver mirri card
The front of the card blank is covered with a slightly smaller piece of blue card. An A4 sheet of card is embossed using the snowflake folder and trimmed to fit the front of the card allowing for a narrow blue border to show.
Finally the topper is attached to the card base and the sentiment stamped at the bottom.
I got a bit carried away with the blues and even added some to the tip of her nose to make her look frozen!
Thanks for dropping in. Take care.
