Here it is.
A square of background paper was stuck onto a card base. The wording was diecut from silver card and stuck on. The snowflakes in the centre were made by using Iridescent Shimmering Watercolour Paints from Creative Expressions on watercolour paper. We then used a die to cut out the snowflakes and then they were heat embossed to make them shiny. An acetate sleeve was added to the card blank and the snowflakes/pearl stuck to the outside. You could make lots of cards using these methods - perhaps a Christmas tree in the centre, stamp/heat emboss on the acetate with a plain background card?
I used some peel-off stickers for the inside message and decoration, and also a snowflake on the back of the card. A new larger Lidl store opened in our local town this week, Haverfordwest, and I was excited to find a good range of crafty stash. Here are the peel-off stickers that I bought - there were different packs available - and also some of the other items that fell into my trolley!
(The lights are going to go in the bauble, if they fit.)
I will actually attempt to enter some challenges (which is why I started this blog, but haven't done any challenges for years).
CHNC Challenge #360 - Anything Goes Christmas (optional theme of Blue - which I didn't use this time).
CHN Patterned Paper Challenge November - Anything Goes Patterned Paper.
Crafting With Friends #55 - Anything Goes
Thanks for reading this.
I will blog again once I have finished the decorated bauble - I need to attempt to use gilding flakes on it (wish me luck!).
