Arty Girlz Challenge 47 - No Patterned Paper!

Yes, I'm still continuing my crusade to make all my Christmas cards via challenges! This one was very much inspired by Carol - so thank you!

This week, the Arty Girlz Challenge is:

This weeks challenge is 'no patterned paper' eek but don't panic too much because this doesn't mean that you can't make your own patterned paper using stamps or doodling or from other resources etc it just means NO shop bought designer patterned paper so go and have fun :)
And this is what I came up with! The backing vellum has been embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflake folder and the edges of the card have been glittered with Anita's 3d glitter paint in silver. I've added a Sizzix cut snowflake (cut from the same card stock) which has been dotted with silver gel pen and then seed beads and wire have been threaded through the holes. This has been attached to the card with acetate, and to give the snowflake a bit of weight, I've added a little purple bell on the end. Which yes, does jingle!

Backing paper: Translucent vellum embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflake folder
  • Embellishments: Snowflake cut with Sizzix die, with wire and seed bead embellishment and added purple bell (from Lynsey)
  • Extras: Acetate and Anita's 3d silver glitter paint from stash

    1. That is gorgeous - I really like embossed papers ;)
