Hi bloggers! First of all, my sincerest apologies that I forgot to mention on yesterday's post about my demo that day on C & C! I did edit it to add it in but it was about 3pm UK time by the time I realised and did that. So... I did say on air that I would give this card away via a drawing on my blog! So if you like this one and would like a chance to win it, then just leave a comment on today's post. I will announce the winner on Sunday's post! While you can still see the demo on C & C if you like, it was during Jamie Rodger's 4:30 pm show with Nigel May. I will still do a quick recap of how it was made here though. I started with a piece of white card and added Pearl Lustre Gilding Polish
in a few swipes across the card. I went back in with Frosty Sparkle Glitter Kiss
and added a few more swipes for a real frosty look. Once dry, I embossed it with the Falling Snow embossing folder
for texture. Next I cut the outer die from the Deco Trees Background,
added a white backing to it and cut the centre out of it. I glued a piece of acetate to the back then added mounting foam to raise it. I attached the embossed background to it (I forgot to mention on air that you could add a bit of Iced Snow to make it a shaker card if desired too) Next I cut two igloos from the Penguin Palace set.
I used a blue pencil to highlight all the lines, then coated it with glue and added Iced Snow.
On the second one, I just did the front portion of the igloo the same way, then cut it off and added it to the other one with foam. I cut the Polar Bear and baby out of white card and used the blue pencil to highlight around the edge. I used a black pencil for the nose and eyes and a small dot of Worn Lipstick
for the cheek and ear. I cut both the Happy die
and the scarf from the Polar Bear Playtime set
with a piece of sticky adhesive sheet added. I peeled the backing paper off both of them and used the Ice Blue Shimmer Shaker
on it for a soft frosty look. I glued the scarf on the bear and added both of them to the frame with foam. I stamped the word "Christmas and cut it out with the tag from the Happy die/stamp combo. I added a black shadow to the "Happy" and glued it to the top of the frame and added the word below it with foam. The card was completed with white mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 7 1/4" in size. Don't forget to leave your comment and check back on Sunday! All for now. Sue x
