Enjoying the Snow
Sorry I can't find you Anne but I wonder if you are the Anne I met at the Loobi Craft classes. If so I hope we'll meet up again soon.
There's a bit of a story behind this card. As there's just the two of us and a bachelor friend for Christmas I make it as easy for myself as I can. Instead of baking I buy it all now - including mince pies.
The image began life as half the front of a Waitrose mince pie box. I love to recycle so after cutting up the box I selected the piece I wanted to use and trimmed to size.
I stuck a piece of double sided adhesive paper on top, peeled off the the back and covered the image with glitter.
I matted onto black card and tore along the bottom. After adding the ribbon I mounted onto a long card (A6 folded the other way). The centres of the snowflakes are dots of Cosmic Shimmer glue sprinkled with glitter.
Now the other side of the box had a different image on which became another card but I'll save that for another day. As I bought several boxes of mince pies I "batch baked" cards.
Now for my first public "Ooops" of the year.
For those of you who didn't find my mistake on the previous post - I made a masking mistake with the umbrella. I've made it look as if the handle of the umbrella is going down inside the front of her coat ....
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Christmas Sparkles #72 (Lots of Glitter)
Christmas Cards All Year Round - January (add Snowflakes)
A Gem of a Challenge #184 (Anything Christmas)
