CCM 99 Christmas Snow and Ice

Our latest Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is Christmas Snow and Ice, which I sadly suspect will be here all too soon. When Josephine came up with this idea back last year we never envisaged that the Winter would last almost into June, and I think she must have imagined how nice it would be to be thinking of the cooler weather again. Instead of which, I am dreading it as it doesn’t seem five minutes ago since it was here the last time.

Anyhow we are sponsored by both Di’s Digistamps with a $10 voucher for their store and by Hobby Art with two fabulous stamps, Archie and Pals and Bertie the Snowman. I am delighted to say that Jenny from Hobby Art is due back on our screens, courtesy of Create and Craft TV on Thursday at 2pm!

CCM 99 Chrismtas Snow and Ice

I printed the front of this card out last year!!! It was one of my emergency overspill cards, but I never got to use it. I would have just presented it as a plain card with no added decoration at the time, but I came across it when I was looking for papers and stamps for this challenge and realised it was perfect for the theme. The added embellishments are all from Craftwork Cards from their Ornaments pad, and I have glittered them and added dimensional snow with a snow writer pen, which I then also glittered. When I was looking for a photograph edge to display it I came across this fabulous edge that looks like icicles!
