Brrrrr! I have just come back in from Dancing where we held a "bit of a do for Rabbie". In other words, some nibbles, some Robbie Burns poetry, a Highland Fling and a toast to the Birthday Boy. Coming home it was mighty cold with some sleet which got to be more snow than sleet by the time I got home!!! Wrap up warm and that advice goes to my blogging friends across the pond. I can hardly believe what New England is going through only a few months after our visit there.
Right then onto tonight's post.
Last week I had a flurry of birthdays, including 3 on Friday alone! So I decided to make some wintery birthday cards, one of which was for a Playground friend who had kindly let me borrow her MB Snowflake die after I was drooling over my laptop at her cards. So here is my card...
Isn't that die just wonderful? And typical of MB dies, it cuts so well too. So how did I make it? I took a piece of white cardstock (some of them from the Snippets drawer) and inked it with Broken China, Faded Jeans, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac (NBUS) DIs. Then I used my favourite technique of spritz n flick by spraying some water into my hand and flicking over the card, leave it a few seconds then dab the excess water. Once this was dry I then took a TH snowflake stamp, versamark and my new favourite WOW embossing powder and randomly stamped some snowflakes on the card.
Then out with the NBUS MB Happy Birthday die and cut this out then I used the visiting MB Snowflake die. Unfortunately one of them got a little scuff when I peeled the tape off. Never mind...out came the PB Smile die and a Snippet of blue metallic and I covered the blemish. I liked the idea so much I decided to use it on all of them!
Last job was to layer up the two layers onto the card and hey presto cards were completed. I sent a photo of the first one to Hubster who was in work and his reply was "its a bit Frozen"! Typical man ey!
I hope you like it. Expect to see some similar ones now for Christmas any time soon! This die has now been pushed up the Wish List now I have used it. Thanks Matey for letting me borrow it.
Off to the Playground as some of these elements were made from Snippets. I hope there is plenty of hot chocolate and plenty of room in front of the fire!
