Simon Says.....Sketch by Domi & Crafty Creations #37 - "Blue"


Another Tuesday (or to put it another way - another day of aquatherapy torture) dawns and I hope this finds you all well in the wonderful land of cardmaking. I hope you have all made some wonderful cards for me to see when I visit you later on.

This card was made for Simon Says ... Sketch by Domi and Crafty Creations #37 where the theme was "Blue. I thought a Christmas Card would be ideal and that would give me the opportunity to use some of my new Inkadinkadoo stamps (bought from Stampaholics in Perth - where else?). I used the Snowman from 99507 and Merry Christmas from 99466.

The paper is from KARS Christmas Collection Speciality Pad. I fell in love with this paper when I saw it and have been torn between using it and keeping it to stroke - the deed is now done. Snowflakes from Kay & Company - Swell Noel layered accents. Ribbon and gems from my stash . I really enjoyed making this one and hope you like it enough to let me know what you think of it. You might have to zoom in to see some of the detail on the paper - I'm not sure the photo does it justice. Your comments are always appreciated.

Hugs,

  6. How could you cut into that beautiful paper? I think I'd have need a stiff drink first. The fact that you've made such a wonderful card with it shows it was worthwhile though.
