For a Child

I would like to share some exciting news - I've been invited to join the Winter Wonderland Design Team and am a member of the Snowflake team.  A big 'thank you' to the rest of the DT for inviting me and for your words of encouragement.

This week's Winter Wonderland challenge is 'For a Child' and we are sponsored by All Dressed Up who are offering two digis for the lucky winner.

For my card I've used this lovely Marianne Designs 'Ice Skating Don' stamp, one of my favourites especially as it was a magazine freebie!  I've just used two colours on the card to keep it fairly CAS.

Card blank: 6 x 6" white silk
Stamp: Marianne Design 'Ice Skating Don' (magazine freebie)
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Squares Large, Snowflake (magazine freebie)
Punch: Woodware Large Snowflake
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Red matt, white silk
Paper: Turquoise Merry Christmas (magazine freebie), Marianne Design 'Wintertime'
Other: Diamond Stickles, Turquoise gems, Wink of Stella

I trimmed the Merry Christmas paper, layered it onto red card and attached it to the card front.  I cut a strip of hearts from one of the Wintertime papers, layered it onto red card and attached this across the lower part of the card front.  The image was stamped onto white card and coloured with Promarkers, matching the clothing colours to the colours of my paper and card.  I die cut and embossed the image, layered it onto red card and attached it to the card front with foam tape.  I highlighted Don with a Wink of Stella and added Diamond Stickles for the snow around his feet.  I die cut a red snowflake and punched two red snowflakes, these were highlighted with a Wink of Stella before being attached to the card.  To finish I added turquoise gems to the centre of the snowflakes.
