Christmas Snowflakes . . . . . . .

Good morning one and all. Hope you are happy and healthy.
I must apologise in advance that my posts may be short (but hopefully sweet) and spaced out for a while as I now have a temporary job, as well as volunteering at the charity shop, and this week's rota is very busy. I'm going to try and get the hours reduced as its not quite what I was expecting so please bear with me until I get get myself sorted. I also may be delayed getting to your blogs but I shall make it to you at some point.

Now, today's card is simple and quick if you have to make a few.
The base is an A4 sheet of ivory linen PMD card, Hougied in half. I cut a piece of gold mirror card slightly smaller than the base and pierced it around the edges. I then cut a slightly smaller piece of ivory linen card and then cut this in half. One half, I ran through the GC with the bottom section of the SB M-Bossibilties Framed Labels 18 folder, which I had to do twice to extend the pattern. I then stuck the two halves flat to the gold pierced layer (I had to cut it in half to get the pattern for the embossing right) with the plain piece at the top.
I cut a piece of gold card to fit across the middle and fishtailed the ends and then did the same with a cream piece, which I then gold heat embossed with a Indigo Blu Merry Christmas stamp.
I then topped the gold piece with the cream piece and foam padded this across the middle of the card to hide the join between the embossed and flat pieces.
Three Marianne Collectables snowflakes (LR0125) cut from gold mirror card finished the look and then I foam padded these top layers to the base card. . . . . . . . Done!

Hope you like it and can bear with me until I next get chance to post. Jenny, I haven't forgotten about a step by step for my last box.
Be good.

  1. Morning Ang,

    Stunning card love the use of the Gold Miri card and the white card half embossed half plain is divine. The Gold snowflakes really set it off.

    Don't worry about getting to everyone, I know what it is like holding down a job and trying to keep a blog going you just don;t have enough time do you? It would be lovely to hear from you now and again rather than not at all.

    Love & Hugs

  11. Hi Ang, I trust Mr Duck will be keeping an eye on you so you don't go overdoing things. The embossing at the bottom of the card is really effective. Best wishes Jackie
