Crafty Cardmakers - Snow & Ice

The latest challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers is hosted by Josephine, who has chosen the theme of 'Christmas Snow and Ice'.

As the hot weather draws to a close, Josephine would like to see us preparing for Winter with some Christmas Snow and Ice!

Your creation must include either a representation of snow or ice, plus a Christmas theme in order to qualify for the Winner or Top 5 slots

For my card I merged 2 digital stamps 'Jackie Frost' by Tickled Pink and A free Snowglobe by Nicola Perry

I coloured the image with a combination of Flexmarkers & pro markers in a combination of blues and lilacs.

I mixed some Frantage with glitter and melted it around the edges ( I think most of it ended up on the floor) then I cut the image out. I added a  Merry Christmas stamp by inkylicious using Black Versafine ink.

The large flourish/snowflake is a memory box die and the the smaller ones are an old punch I have.  All the gems and pearls are from my craft stash.

I coloured some ribbon with promarkers to match my colour theme and and filled a tiny glass vial (so cute from ebay) with glitter and tied it along with a metal snowflake to the edge of the card.
