|Completed Christmas card|
Stamps used are:
Snowflake Lace (background)
Winter Wonderland (topper)
Merry Christmas Circle - dinkie (sentiment)
I started out with a piece of IndigoBlu white stamping card, and inked up using Distress Inks (chipped sapphire, tumbled glass, peeled paint), which I sprinkled and spritzed with water in the 'sky' area.
After fully drying, I very generously inked up the Winter Wonderland stamp using jet black Stazon. I left this to one side to fully dry. Later, I swiped FlitterGlu along the edges with my Phat Foam and added Mega Flake - Yorkshire Dales - which I gently 'scoochied' to give a fine line 'frame'.

I took a 5x7"card blank and cut some black card to fit. Onto this black card (IndigoBlu Coal Black Stamping card), I used my Snowflake Lace stamp to add FlitterGlu and Mega Flake to. The detail is amazing, and it's a shame that you can't see it that clearly in my photo, but I hope the close up shows how good it looks.

The last bit of stamping was done on some old card stock I had laying around, onto the shiny side I stamped the Dinkie Merry Christmas Circle, using Jet Black Stazon. This I left to dry thorough, as the card was really very shiny. Once dry, I die cut using a Spellbinders Ironwork Motifs die. I inked the edges very gently with a combination of the same inks used on the topper.

I'm not overly happy with my bow - but as I applied it with the Flitterglu, that bow's not coming off!!!
I hope you like my little card,
Peace to all!
