I LOVE doing Christmas cards and for my second guest spot at Karen's Doodles, I used the delightful digi image, 'Emma and Snow Scene'. She's a real cutie and the image lends itself beautifully to being cut out with a Circle Nestability.
I placed a light at the side while I was taking my photograph so you could see the sparkle of the Glamour Dust I used on the snowflakes. I dotted it in the middle of the DP snowflakes too, but you can see those very well, even with a light shining on them.
I wanted Emma's clothes (and boots) to look like Suede and it worked out well I think.
I love that DP. It's by Papermania and I've had it for ages. I like the fact that the greeting is more or less on the paper, so if I decide to add a poinsettia or large snowflake at a later date, it gives me room to do so.
I like it as it is though.
Please go on over to Karen's Doodles challenge blog and see what beautifully crafted cards the DT have created. There is SO much talent there, you will be spoilt for choice. Why not join in with the challenge. I love to see all the different ideas.
Well, that's it from me for now. I have to get back to my paper hanging. I've decided that this will be my last D-I-Y decorating. I'm getting too old and my oncologist would have a fit if she could see me working myself silly!! Shhh, don't tell her!!!! It's going to be worth it!!!
(I'll show you some before and after pictures when it's completed).
