Christmas white and blue



This is my card for the following challenges
Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Week 76 - No Designer Paper
Simply Stamping blog challenge - sketch

I have used Stampin' Up stamps to create all the background papers.



To begin I cut panels of white and dark blue card. One of the panels I punched with my Stampin' Up Eyelet punch. This panel I stamped with a snowflake design. The ink pad I used was Night of Navy and the stamp is from Season of Joy stamp set. The long strip and the other white panel was stamped with Baja Blue ink pad. The two flower stamps were from the Season of Joy set again. I stamped the dark blue card panel with white craft ink.



The main image is Dasher stamp. The greeting is from Contempo Christmas. I stamped the two snowflakes and punched these out with circle punches.

I layered all the panels onto a square card blank. To finish I added glitter and blue dots.
