B is for Bows, Bunting or Baking

The current ABC Christmas Challenge is to use 'Bows, Bunting or Baking'.  I've chosen the Bows option to make this Christmas card using more snippets as part of my thrifty crafting year, so I'm paying another visit to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk 
Colouring: Promarkers
Snippets: Topper, paper, card and ribbon 

I coloured a couple of small pieces of white ribbon with a purple Promarker.  The lilac snowflake paper was layered onto purple mirri card and I wrapped one piece of the ribbon around it before attaching it to the left side of the card.   The snowman topper was layered onto purple mirri card and attached to the front of the card with foam pads.   Another piece of ribbon was tied into a small bow and attached to the front of the card.

  1. Hi again Kath! Wow, this is absolutely darling. Great idea to colour the ribbon with a Pro Marker too - that's how to get the perfect shade :)

  2. Hi Kath,
    oh what a very lovely card.
    I love that snowman topper, and your matt and layering techniques are super.
    Fab idea to colour your ribbon.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  6. Love these snow people...and love the cool look of the blue c/s against that silvery mirri c/s. Liked the layout and the way you've done the ribbon on the bottom rectangle with the focal image placed to the side. Brilliant snippet card. TFS & Hugs
