A Gem of a Challenge 6



This card I'm entering into Pink Gem Designs - A Gem of a Challenge 6

Merry Christmas! I know it's a bit early but this is my first Christmas card on my blog. It's not the first Christmas card I've made this year though as I've already been using Little Claire's range as part of their DT but they are still under wraps, for now.



I began by stamping the image with a Memento ink pad. This is a stamp by Pink Gem Design called 'Milly on Reindeer'. I coloured the image in with ProMakers. I added flock to the fur areas with a Quickie Glue pen. I added various colours of Stickles to finish.



I created with snowflake background paper myself. I added a distressed look to a panel of dusty pink card with a sepia VersaFine ink pad and a Stampin' Up sponge dauber. I them stamped white snowflakes using Stampin' Up white craft ink pad.

I mounted the pink panel and the Milly on Reindeer stamped image onto silver card.

I using Nestabilites to cut the larger circle from Co'ordinations whitewash card. I used a snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder to add the texture. To bring out the design I sanded the top of the image. I added a peel-off greeting.



To finish the card I added a strip of the dusty pink patterned paper and I stamped the Milly image again inside the card.
