This is a fab card – it will work as a 6x6, 7x7 or as I have used it 8x8
So to the important stuff first
It is called Penguin Snowball Topper Sheet
I started by creasing a bought 8x8 scallop edged card into my card blank
A sheet of pale blue snowflake backing paper was added to the card blank to leave a narrow all round border
After cutting the main image out I matted it to a piece of blue holographic mirri card and punched one edge which looked lovely.
I matted the main image piece to the blue holographic mirri then stuck it to the card blank – I moved the main sheet over so the punched border was in line with the edge of the scallop and secured into place.
As I had a blank top left corner I couldn't decided how to fill it so used a couple of www.stampsbychloe.co.uk buy stamping the large poinsettia and 2 smaller onto a piece of the paper from the background
I used Versamark to stamp then embossed using a lovely sparkle silver embossing powder – the petals were held with a brad.
These poinsettia were then stuck to the top corner of the card
I added a single clear gem to the centre of the large snowflake and then a layer of PVA was added to the “fur” on the hat, pompom and snowballs and then heavily covered with an iridescent glitter to finish
I love this card – hope you do too
See you next time with another lovely card!
