I have been busy making cards for a craft fair as well as for my annual Christmas Open House. This is where I invite friends, neighbours and colleagues into my home one afternoon with the lure of free mulled wine and mince pies and
I thought I would showcase one of my favourite cards and because I have used a few PTI products this means it should qualify as an entry for the latest A Passion for Papertrey Challenge.
First I took some PTI Aqua Mist cardstock which I cut and then folded to make a standard sized card. I then stamped the snow globe image and using a craft knife cut out the inside (this was the trickiest part for me as I'm not a fan of craft knives!).
I then stamped the polar bear image onto PTI Stamper's Select White cardstock and coloured in his scarf and used a Copic Ciao to make the image pop. Next I punched the image out with a large circle punch and adhered this to the inside of the card making sure it lined up with the snow globe aperture.
Using white opaque Stazon I stamped the snowflake image onto PTI Clearly Creative cardstock. When the image was dry I cut it out and stuck it to the inside of the front of the card to fill in the snow globe aperture. Finally I used some Stickles glue to accent the snowflakes on the acetate and on the greeting (by the way I forgot to mention that I stamped this after stamped the snow globe).
