This week our challenge at Whoopsi Daisy is Use Your Snowflakes. There are snow many ways to do a card for this challenge and Linnie has lots of images to that can be used.
The Daisy Divas have made some brilliant cards, do pop over to the Whoopsi Daisy blog to see them.
My daughter asked me to make a Christmas card for my granddaughter (her niece) and she chose this image. It's so cute but then all Linnie's images are!
I coloured the snow and snowman with watered down china blue distress ink then some icicles stickles dabbed on. The rest of the image was coloured with promarkers, The dp was a magazine freebie and fitted the challenge perfectly. This was one of those cards that just seemed to fall into place, it's quite a simple design but the dp is so strong that it didn't need a lot of embellishment. To break up the dp a little I used a chiffon ribbon which had a purple edge but the centre was pale lilac and was lost but I overlaid it with the sparkly ribbon and added gems and was pleased with the effect. The snowflakes in the corners were dabbed with purple stickles, a die cut flourish, a greeting and job done!
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
