Frosty Sky & White - Seasons Greetings

Good Evening  Everyone,

Today's card is an 8 x 8  Christmas Card

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

8 x 8 Card Blank
Frosty Christmas Holly Paper pad
Christmas Holly Sentiment A5 Stamp Set
Christmas Holly Decorative Frame Single Stamp Holly
Christmas Holly Verse Collection A5 Stamp Set
Phill Martin Frosty Sky Twinkles
Phill Martin Frosty Sky P.V.A.
Phill Martin Frosty Sky Gilding Wax
Seam Binding
Black Soot Distress Ink
Silver Embossing Powder
Sue Wilson Die Festive Collection - Holly Sprays
Sue Wilson Caribbean Island Collection Die - Border, Accent & Tag 

8 x 8 card blank
1st 7.75 square
2nd layer Frosty Sky from paper pad cut to 7.5 square

Using the 7,75 square card I edged this with Frosty Sky Gilding Wax and attached to main card blank.
Then attached the patterned paper to card.

Next I cut 3 pieces of white card
First one 2 x 7.5
Second one 2.5 x 7.5
Third one 3 x 7.5
I then cut these out using the Border Die. Once this was complete I glued all three strips together.
Cutting a piece of White Seam Binding and using the Frosty Blue Colour Cloud I dyed the Seam Binding to match the card. At this stage I also dyed enough Seam Binding to make a double bow. Once this was dry I added the strip of Seam Binding to the strips of card before attaching this to the main card.

Using the Christmas Holly Frame Stamp and the Frosty Sky Colour Cloud to stamp this, I cut it out and mounted in onto the card using pads to give dimension, then added the Sentiment using Silver Embossing Powder, again using pad to attach to card.

Finishing Touches

I cut out the Holly Sprays and added these to the card.
I added Glamour Dust to the leaves and also onto the background of the stamp.
Around the edges I used Cosmic Shimmer Glue and Glacier Ice.
The holly berries are highlighted using Frosty Sky P.V.A. Glue.
I made a double bow and a tie bow for the strip of seam binding and added dazzlers to each.
Along the edges of the Border Die I used Frosty Sky Twinkles, when this was dry I curled each edge.

Finally I added the insert using the New Christmas Holly Paper pad matching insert and a verse from the Christmas Holly Verse Collection.

                                                                    Happy Crafting
