Frosty Sky - Christmas Wishes

Good Morning Everyone,

Thanks you all for your lovely comments on my previous post .

I hope all  who went To Ally Pally at the weekend had a wonderful time, and got the chance to meet Phill.

Today's card : 8 x 8 Christmas Card in Frosty Sky.

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

8 x 8 Card Blanks
White Card Stock
Frosty Sky Mister Spray
Frosty Sky Colour Cloud Ink
Frosty Sky Twinkles
Frosty Sky P.V.A. Glue
Sentimentally Yours Christmas Stamps - Bauble Opulence Collection
Spell Binder Dies Create-a-Flake Three
Seam Binding
Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels
Sue Wilson Snowflake Lattice Embossing Folder

To create this card first  I cut a 7.75 sq from  A4 White Card Stock and used Frosty Sky Mister Spray. Once this was dry (a couple of minutes) I attached to main card blank, using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

Next I cut a piece of White Card Stock to 6.75 sq and edged it with Frosty Sky Colour Cloud Blending Ink, and again attached flat to card.

The next layer I cut to 6.5 sq and using the Snowflakes from the Bauble Opulence Collection Stamps I created the background using Frosty Sky, then attached flat to the card.

 Next I cut a piece of white card stock to 5.5 sq and embossed it with the Snowflake Lattice Embossing Folder
and attached this to the card using pads.

Using the Bauble Opulence Collection Stamps I stamped 2 baubles using Frosty Sky Colour Cloud Blending Ink. Then stamped the Sentiment in the centre of the bauble. Once these were dry I cut them out and glued back to back, inserting a very narrow strip of acetate to the top and attached to the card.

Using the  Spellbinder Create -a -Flake Three I cut several of these out and shaped these,glued together and attached to the card.

Finishing Touches

Once all this was assembled I used Frosty Sky P.V.A. Glue to add pearls to the Snowflake Lattice. Then I used Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels to the tips of the snowflakes and also to snowflake background and snowflakes on the bauble.

I then added Frosty Sky Twinkles around the edge of the bauble.

Using Seam Binding, I made a triple bow and tails to add to the top of the bauble.

Finally I added Dazzlers to the centre of the snowflakes and also the centre of the bow.

                                                                   Happy Crafting
