Summer colours for Christmas

A new week and another Christmas card made using a Little Claire stamp which will be launched on Hochanda on Friday morning. If you`re in a Christmas card making mood why not tune in to Hochanda today and see the Crafters Companion Scandinavian Christmas launch, I`ve seen some of the samples for this show and they look amazing.
what was used:
Little Claire stamp
Creative Expressions, Festive Collection, Poinsettia Additions dies
flower middle die
Kanban snowflake stamp
pink card scraps
pink paper
green pearlescent paper
white glitter card
2 x small AB gems
pastel chalks - to make background
Crafters Companion, Sheenas stamping card
black Versa Fine ink pad
Versa Mark ink pad
clear fine detail embossing powder
masking tape
lead pencil
Another easy card to make once the background is prepared.
Simply mask around the base card and stamp the snowflake image, sprinkle with embossing powder and heat emboss.
Colour the masked background using the pastel chalks.
Carefully remove the masking tape and using a ruler and pencil draw around the edge of the coloured background area.
The rest of the card is straight forward from this point on.
I am really getting into the spirit of Christmas crafting after seeing the fantastic samples for the Crafters Companion Scndinavian Christmas show but sadly my Christmas cards will have to wait a little longer as I have a few other projects to make first. I`m sure its a crafters thing but I have so many things that I want to make but at the moment not enough time to do them - roll on the summer holidays.
