A Blue Christmas

Evening peeps,

Another Christmas card that I have made, this time a blue one:

I used a small piece of heavenly embossed paper, cannot remember who made it though, sorry - I removed the little strip from the bottom of the paper and didn't make a note of the manufacturer!!




I matted this onto silver mirri and blue Bazzill cardstock. I then stamped the snowflake swirl (Inkadinkado) using silver embossing powder to get a nice finish to the image. Next, I poked holes in the stamped image and threaded some fine silver wire thru the holes and added seed beads to the wire. I did this twice and then added a little silver snowflake button to one of the snowflake images of the stamp. I added little blue gems to the dots on the design and then matted this onto silver mirri and blue Bazzill. I got the idea for the wire threading when I went on a great craft weekend with The Card Studio - we used this stamp on a card we made in the workshop and used the wire threading technique then - I just elaborated a bit and used a few beads to make it look pretty :O))





The sentiment is by Penny Black, isn't it a lovely saying? This was then added to the card - matted as the others were. Finally, I used another piece of thin silver wire and poked a hole through the top of the card, attached a snowflake charm which I bought from Scrapz and then added more seed beads to the wire and secured it with a silver brad.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to read yesterday's post...Blog Candy up for grabs :O))

Hugs Hels xx
