A new card style and 4 challenges in one
I've seen load of these new style of card lately, think its called an Easel card. I couldn't wait to try one, I love it, can't wait to do another, they're so easy and a great way to display the card. Here's a view from the side.
I followed the sketch from the Saturday Sketch #74.
The papers are called Plum Pudding not too sure who makes them, I have to say I do like these traditional colours for Christmas. I picked the papers with spots and stripes so that I could enter it in this weeks Papertake Challenge - Spot and Stripes. Also I'm going to enter it in the Whiff of Joy Challenge This week they want you to use the colours Red, Cream plus 1 of your choice. Of course I needed to use a Whiff of Joy stamp, which is no problem at all they're all gorgeous. I chose Melinda Christmas Angel, she's so beautiful and I coloured her using Promarkers and Zig Brushables. I coloured her wings with Sakura Gelly Roll - clear pen, which leaves them covered in glitter, without colour. Around the edge of her gown I added Art Institute glue and crystal glitter. To finish her off and make her even more glitzy, I use Sakura gold pen over the snowflakes on the front of her dress and more of the clear on the ones on the back part.
For my embellishment I cut various snowflakes, using Sizzlits dies and a punch, I sprayed them all with gold glitter spray from Crafters Companions and layered them up with a gold brad.
As there is glitter everywhere on this card I am going to enter it in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - All that Sparkles
