Morning crafty friends. It has been a funny break from work and a lot has happened but today I am back in the office - boo!
To compensate Jen and I took a crafty shopping trip yesterday to Blyth Craft Studio where we purchased a few necessities (ahem). Our main reason for the trip was to find the Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments die from Christmas 2011.
We had a good
excuse reason for buying this set as Jen received free stamps on one of her magazine subscriptions that were made to match the dies. Well it would have been rude note to complete the set lol.
When we eventually got some time in the craft room last night I decided to open up the packets and create a simple Christmas card.
I took a square card blank and embossed it with a snowflake embossing folder. Some of the raised areas were highlighted with a Versamark pen and had silver embossing powder added. Unfortunately the design doesn't show up too well on my photo.
I stamped the bauble with light blue pigment ink and embossed with clear powder. This gives the bauble design a lovely sheen. I cut it out using the corresponding die and added it to the centre of the card on foam pads for dimension. A ribbon bow at the top and a few ice blue pearls complete the look.
What do you think? TTFN Jude xx
