DV #192 Christmas

Good morning. Welcome to Dream Valley’s final challenge of the year, Christmas. We have lots of lovely sponsors this time around so please do go look at the blog and join in the fun to see what you might be able to win.

We have Fabrika Fantasy with 3 Digital Stamps, Sheepski Designs (my image is from them, called Snowboarding) with 3 Digital Stamps, All Dressed Up with 2 Digital Stamps, Paper Nest Dolls 3 Digital Stamps and Di’s Digis with a $12 voucher.

192 Christmas

As I said above, I have used Snowboarding from Sheepski Designs for my card.

I coloured it with my copics and die cut it with a Crealies die. I used paper from my stash and white card to make my card, all diecut with the Crealies die. I ran the white layers and the image itself through a snow embossing folder. I have a few snow embossing folders but this one is my favourite because of the lovely larger drops of snow. Some of them only have small dots of snow.

To finish it off I have a sentiment from Craftwork Cards and some tiny snowflake peel offs.

Does anyone know of a set of SMALL and I do mean small snowflake dies? I can’t seem to find anything smaller than 2cms for the smallest die (Sizzix Tim Holtz mini Snowflakes). I would like some lovely delicate ones for this type of card.

All of us at Dream Valley wish all of you out there a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy, Happy 2019.
