Happy Christmas - Frosty Sky

Good Evening Everyone,

I hope you  all enjoyed watching Phill doing his demonstrations on Hochanda today. Its been a very long but enjoyable day for him, as I'm sure you will agree its enjoyable for us to.

Its also great news that all the cards he maked on the show will be given away, keep a look out on his facebook page as well as the blog for further details.

Today's card :- 8 x 8 Christmas Card using the lovely Frosty Sky

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

8 x 8 Card Blank
Frosty Sky Mister Spray
Frosty Sky Pearl P.V.A.
Frosty Sky Colour Cloud
Sentimentally Yours Bauble Opulence Stamp
Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic P.V.A. Glue
Glacier Ice
Sue Wilson Embossing Folder - Snowflake Lattice
Sue Wilson Poinsettia Die
Spellbinder Die Labels 47

To create this card I cut the first layer  -  plain white card stock to 7.75 sq then used /frosty Sky Mister Spray and when dry I attached flat to the main card blank.

I then cut a piece of plain white card to 6.75 sq and inked the edge with Frosty Sky Colour Cloud and attached flat to the card.

The next layer I cut to 6.5 sq and embossed this using the Snowflake Lattice Die and attached flat to the card.


Using the Spellbinder die I cut this out and taking the largest cut out I coloured the lattice with Frosty Sky Gilding Wax, and the centre with Frosty Sky Colour Cloud. then attached this to the card using pads to give dimension.

Next I coloured the centre lattice with Frosty Sky Gilding Wax and attached flat to card.

Taking the fancy edged cut out I attached this to the centre using pads.

I then chose my sentiment from the Bauble Opulence Stamp Set and stamped this using Frosty Sky Colour Cloud, I then edged this with the same ink and attached to the centre using pads.


I created the flowers using the Poinsettia dies and cut several of these out using plain white card stock and card sprayed with Frosty Sky Mister Spray.

I then shaped these before adding to the card.

Finishing Touches

I added Glacier Ice to the top and bottom of the filigree on the largest die and added Dazzlers to the centre of the poinsettias.

Finally I added Frosty Sky P.V.A. Pearls to the corners of the card.

                                               Happy Crafting

  9. Hi barb,
    This card is stunning, I must admit I did like Phil's shows on Hochanda, learnt a few new techniques & tips. Which is always good.
    I haven't got the frosty cloud inks yet, but are on my list of must haves. So far have 12 pots but there are a lot of colours in the range, think the frosty ones will be next though.
    Have a great day
