Alone in the Snow

Hi All Jennifer here again,

Hope everyone is well and happy.   Not long until Christmas now lols, have you all started your present shopping yet?   I am cheating this year and am buying my Christmas cards !!  I know, I should be making them but I just don't seem to have the time at the moment.   The card I would like to share with you all today was made for Imagination Craft's in July 2011 and used their  Lilac Heaven Stencil Paste.  I'm not sure that the paste is still available but you could use  another white paste and colour it with  a lilac Inkadink.   This is a quick card to make, apart from the time it takes for the stencil paste to dry.   So off we go, let's get started shall we !



Take a piece of white card and colour the top half with the violet and the burnt orange mixed with water - a thin layer.   When dry lay the stencil on top and spread the stencil paste through the stencil.   When dry add some Glitz Gel to the snowflake centres, tree branches, snow and the snowman.

Paint the band on the snowman's hat with the lilac pearly paint.   Cut off each corner and fix to the dark lavender paper, leaving a narrow border showing.   Matt this onto some pale lavender paper, again leaving a narrow border.   Next, matt this onto a white base card.

Punch out some tiny and some small white circles and glue to each corner of the card.   Stamp the tag and 'let it snow' stamp onto some spare white card using the Pearlescent Purple Brilliance Pad.  Cut it out and add some Glitz Gel.   Fix to a piece of the dark lavender paper with sticky foam pads.   Trim around the tag leaving a tiny border of the lavender showing.

Next glue the tag to the left-hand side of the base card on an angle.   Add a bow to the tag.  That's it finished.  Hope you like it.   Until next time keep well and stay warm in this cold weather.
