Frosty Heather Christmas Card

Good Morning Everyone,

It is overcast here in Nottingham so a good time to spend the day in my craft room.

Once again I have had received some lovely comment on my previous blog and I thank you all so much.

On with today's card:

Products used:- (which are also links to Phill's website) :-)

8 x 8 Card Blank
Frosty Christmas Holly Paper pad
Frosty Heather Gilding Was by Phill Martin
Frosty Heather Twinkles by Phill Martin
Frosty Heather P.V.A. by Phill Martin
Frosty Heather Colour Cloud Blending Ink
Christmas Holly Verse Stamp Set A5
Embossing Folder Snowflake Lattice
Sue Wilson Die - Caribbean Island Collection, Border Accent & Tag
Silver Embossing Powder
Seam Binding
Stick pins

The first thing I did before creating this card was to cut a piece of White Seam Binding, enough to make a triple bow and swags. I then coloured it with Frosty Heather Colour Cloud Blending Ink.

1st Layer
I cut a piece of plain white card to 7.75 square, then I used Frosty Heather Gilding Wax  around the edges.

Using a sheet of Frosty Heather Christmas Paper I cut this to 7.5 square and then attached both layers
to the main card.

Next I cut 2 pieces of plain white card to 2" x 7.75 then using the Border Die I cut them both out before Embossing them with the Snowflake Lattice Embossing Folder. I then attached both to the card.


For the Sentiment I used a Verse from the Christmas Holly Verse Collection and heat embossed it using Silver Embossing Powder.
I then attached this to the card using pads.

Finishing Touches

I added Frosty Heather P.V.A. Pearls to the centre of the snowflakes, and Frosty Heather Twinkles to the edges of the border and around the edges of the sentiment.
Then making sure the ribbon wad dry I made a triple bow with swags and added this using a large Dazzler.

Finally I added a matching insert form the Christmas Holly Paper pad insert.

                                                                Happy Crafting
