Christmas Card Featuring The New Frosty Mink

Good Morning Everyone,

Thank you for your lovely comments on my previous post.

Today's card is a Christmas  8 x 8

 I made this using the New Frosty Mink

Products Used:-  (which are also links to Phill's Website) :-)

8 x 8 Card Blank
Phill Martin Frosty Mink Gilding Wax
Phill Martin Frosty Mink Twinkles
Phill Martin Frosty Mink 
Frosty Christmas Holly Paper Pad
Christmas Holly Verse Stamp
Christmas Holly Background Stamp A6
Frosty Mink Colour Cloud Blending Ink
Seam Binding
White Crochet Ribbon
Sue Wilson Noble Dies - Ornate Pierced Design

First I cut 2 pieces of plain white card stock,
1st  7.75 square
2nd  7.5 square

I edged the first layer using Frosty Mink Gilding Wax then used Frosty Mink Mister Spray on the second layer, and attached these to the main card  blank.

3rd Layer is Frosty Mink Paper cur to 7" square and add to card.

Next I cut a piece of plain white card to 7.75 x 2" and stamped this using Frosty Mink Colour Cloud Ink and the Christmas Holly Background Stamp. Once this was dry I used White Crochet Ribbon and attached this to the card.


Using the die I cut this out and stamped the top layer with a Verse from the New Christmas Verse Stamps.
I heat embossed this in gold, then attached to card using pads

Finishing Touches:

I edged around the outer die using Frosty Mink Twinkles and Frosty Mink P.V.A. around the inner die.
I then made a triple bow using white seam binding which I had previously coloured with Frosty Mink Colour Cloud Blending Ink, adding Dazzlers to finish.

                                                      Happy Crafting
