Morning!

Good morning, well technically afternoon but I've not had lunch so as far as I am concerned it is still morning. Today I have the Christmas card I made for hubby to share with you- I always find making him cards quite tricky as he is a graphic designer and I'm so happy when he likes them (not that he'd say if he didn't).

Anyway, hope you like it too. 




I used a 8x8 card base and place a die cut scalloped circle in the middle. Then I used various blue inks to stamp different snowflakes over the top/round the edge to create the border. I added the sentiment in that darker ink; it was made up from two different Papermania sets. Next I used the dry embossing technique I used in this card to take elements from an embossing folder to accentuate certain parts of the design. 



Finally, I added the glitter- lots!

Thanks for popping in,

  1. Love the sparkle of those embossed snowflakes! Husbands are tricky, aren't they. Mine is really too honest for his own good, but then again, I know for sure when he really likes something, so that's good too! lol! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!
