Joanna Sheen Enchanted Dreams Christmas card

Hello blogging peeps, sorry for the wait between posts but I have had a bad cold and nearly lost my voice because of it (can't tell you how many peeps were quite glad of it!) but has been a difficult week mostly because my job involves a lot of talking. Anyway voice is on the way back and am feeling heaps better. Todays card is an entry for the crafty bloggers network challenge is a simple card and they have a group on facebook if you would like to join other crafty bloggers and look at lots of other very lovely creations.

Today's card is an 8 x 8 with a silver mat then a hunkydory xmas patterned paper layered on top. I used a snowflake memory box die to cut 4 corners in silver. (I originally tried colouring one a pale blue but it didn't really make too much difference so I left them silver in the end) the corners were glued with a quickie glue pen as they are quite filigree. I printed a topper from the Joanna Sheen Enchanted Dreams cd (available here if you are interested) and matted onto silver and some lovely purple coredinations glitter card and arranged in the centre. To finish a nice hunkydory sentiment. Oh and I also used a sakura glitter pen on the snowflakes on the topper for a little sparkle.

This card was so simple to make, took less than 1/2 hour to put together and yet is probably one of the most striking cards I have made in a while. The silver snowflake corners add a complementary icy feel to the card and in real life looks really good, I don't know if that comes across well in the photo.

Anyway that's all for today....happy halloween peeps.

Until next time

Take care
