Brr It's Cold Outside

Hi everyone, thanks so much for all your fantastic comments on my previous two posts, it's so much appreciated and does wonders for my creativity. This week the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is to use texture on your card, so for my DT card I injected lots of textures in to this card.

I used the brick plate and ran some co-ordinations paper through my die cutting machine and then sanded it back to reveal the coloured core. Next I die cut this piece of paper and sprayed some glue onto it and added extra fine glitter for a frosty feel.

My tree I layered up and sprayed with some gold mica spray and dried with my heat gun. This helps to curl the paper and gives it a firmer feel. I added Flower-soft snow, glitter, red stickles, my little birds and snowflakes all to give a winter feel. The Tree comes with some wonderful decorations dies also and you can see it decorated here on one of my previous cards.

My window I wanted a frosty feel to, so I added some icicles....I adore this die. They we're die cut in white card with a little distress added to the points of them, I then sprayed glue and added glitter too them and placed onto my window frame with a little snow. I also made some curtains for behind my window using my Cuties strip die.

My wording I layered up twice for a shadow effect. I wish you could see all the sparkle on this card but the camera has unfortunately only picked up a bit of it.

    I am sorry I have been absent from visiting your beautiful blog but I have been considerably absent from on-line activities.
    This is magical! It has transported me to a place of nostalgia. The detailing is extraordinary, in fact it is reminiscent of a beautiful illustration in a vintage book. I have fallen in love with this scene, in fact, is it possible for me to move into that home!

  8. Hi Julie! Your Christmas card is just magical! So many beautiful elements and the sparkle is jut gorgeous!
    Thank you for yor sweet comment. I'm sure my Mum would love a crafty friend and I did mention it to her. She said she's enjoy talking to someone about Pergamano only she's worried she can't speak English well enough to be able to discuss any technicalities of it :) I said I could help her with translation though. Feel free to send me an email via my contact form and I will reply ;)
    Thank you for joining my blog too, it's so nice to have such a talented lady nearby :)
