Froche Weihnachten

** Update - I've changed the sentiment on the card after realising I'd added an extra C - I'd randomly printed two sentiments, one correctly spelt and one not and yep, guess which one I added!  Now all changed!! **

I've got a rather long list of Christmas cards on order to make this year so have made a start, and this is one of them. The sentiment is by request as it is to be sent to a German family.  I've used the August progressive challenge digi by From The Heart Stamps - Candy Cane for Snowman.

I've used Promarkers to colour plus watercolour pencils for the background; added glitter glue and glossy accents.  All the coloured card is from a really nice foolscap sized pad from Lidl (25 sheets for £2!) plus a piece of silver card from my stash.  Both pieces have been embossed with Swiss Dots.

I've added ribbon from my stash, the snowflake is a Marianne Creatables die and I've also used half pearls, again from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

That Craft Place:  Blue

  1. Love your card Ruth, what a great image and wonderful colours love the use of the silver square and the swiss dots embossing looking like snow falling. Great card and thanks so much for sharing your talent with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.

  2. Such a cute card! I've always thought the Germany Christmas greeting was Frohe Weinachten (no "c" in Frohe). You might want to double check on that.

  3. Adorable! Love the addition of the silver paper. Your coloring is great! Thanks for joining the SOTM challenge at FTHS this month!

  4. Super sweet, Ruth. Like the blue and silver together.
