CCM 106 Winter Fun

This is our final challenge at Crafty Cardmakers for 2013 and it’s a fun one, Winter Fun to be precise. We want to see your creations depicting the sort of fun you might have during the Winter, for example sledding, skating, skiing, building a snowman, but NOT a Christmas card, although what you do with it afterwards is up to you!!

We are sponsored for our final challenge by The Paper Shelter with a $20 gift certificate for their store and also by Sir Stampalot with a fabulous Magnolia stamp.

I have used an image from our first Sponsor called Fantasy on Ice, to create my card.

CCM 106 Winter Fun

I coloured her with copics and there are a few little touches of both glamour dust and a silver pigment ink roller ball pen for her blades and the metal parts of her boots. I have used what is rapidly becoming my favourite die, the elegant labels 25 die from Spellbindrs. The boots are a Marianne die, which I cut twice in toning pale turquoise card and silver mirri for the blades. A tiny bit of embroidery thread made the laces. In the opposite corner is a metal filigree corner which I frantaged. I have been hanging onto these metal corners as I love them so much, but as I have managed to find another supply I used it here!
