Magical Christmas.....

Hello to all you lovely crafters! Well this is my first Christmas
Card for 2010. After seeing all the lovely creations over on Simon
Says Challenge
I just had to play along, Simon Says are you All
White! which means everything on your card has to be White
apart from your image which can be coloured! I have used this
beautiful little image by Leanne Ellis, it is a fundraiser stamp
and 100% of the profits go to Breast Cancer, it's available here
at Funky Kits. I have painted my image with water colours then
drew around the image on the front of the card and cut out an
aperture with my craft knife. I have set the image inside the
card but once the card is closed wanted it to look like she was
daydreaming out of the window, she is set onto a lovely doily
and I have used lots of stickles Star Dust to make her sparkle.

For the front of the card I have punched these fab branches
to look like a snowy wisteria growing up the front of the house
just outside the window and also punched these lovely snowflakes
from glitter card and added some crystal stones to the centre.
I have also added lots of Star Dust stickles to the branches but it
has not shown up that well!

Finally I have stamped and embossed the sentiment with
Colour Box MetaleXtra pigment ink and embossed with Stamp n
Stuff Kaleidoscope embossing powder then heat set.
Punched my little eyelet and added a LLB Tassel. I am also
entering this card into the ABC Christmas Challenge this week
which is W for Winter Wonderland. TFL. Happy Crafting, Sue xx
