Three's Company

Hi All,  Jennifer here again,

Now that Autumn is nearly upon us I thought I would show you a Christmas card this time.   I do like making Christmas cards,  they  are fun and totally different from the cards we make during the rest of the year.  As a child I absolutely loved the Christmas Season, it all seemed so magical !!,

  


                                                 
Make a base card from white cardstock.   Onto this mat some navy card leaving a border of white showing.

Take a piece of white card and using the largest label die, cut a label from the card centre.  Put the die cut shape to one side for another project.   Colour the card left over after cutting out the die shape with distress inks.  When dry, lay the stencil on the top of the card and spread the distress inks through the stencil.   Before matting onto the navy card, punch out a semi circle from each corner with a 1" circle punch.   Mat this onto the navy card.   Punch  four large snowflakes from white card and glue one in each corner.  Mat this onto some turquoise glitter card, then onto some white card, leaving a small border each time.  Mat this onto the navy and white base card.

Cut a smaller label from white card and colour using distress inks.   Rub the white pigment inkpad around the edges of the label and heat emboss using white embossing powder.   Fix this to the centre of the base card using sticky foam pads.

Stamp three snowmen using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink,  cut out and layer onto the label using sticky foam pads.   Add some rhinestones to the sky behind the snowmen.  Add a small band of glitter card to each snowman's hat.

Punch out four small squares from the left - over stencilled card and glue down the right hand side of the card.   Punch out three small white snowflakes and glue in between the squares.   Glue a rhinestone to the three snowflakes.

Well that's it.   
Many thanks for stopping by.   
Happy crafting
Hugs
