SCRS Challenge 94 - Snow!

Hi folks,

well, the Christmas card crush is on for me now. I REALLY have to get the cards finished for my nieces and nephews before the end of this week as I have to get them in the mail (express post - AGAIN!) to get them to them in time for Christmas. So, you're going to see a "few" Christmas cards posted over the week or so as long as I can find the time to work on them.

This Christmas I am finally getting around to inking up LAST Christmas' stamps from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps (I takes me a while to work my way through all my stamps). For my second eldest niece, I though this Snow Angel Ruby would make a for a fun card. (Don't tell anyone but even at 40+ I STILL make snow angels whenever I find a nice clear patch of snow!)

card details:

  • finished size: 5.5 x 5.5 inches, kraft card stock base
  • patterned papers: Cosmo Cricket Jolly By Golly (wow now that's what I call digging in to your stash - this paper is date stamped as a 2009 release. Yes, it takes me a while to work my way through all my paper as well).
  • stamped image: Snow Angel Ruby from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, coloured with Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, E93, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, RV11, RV32, RV42, B000, B0000, W00)
  • sentiment: Verve "Merry & Bright"
  • Spellbinders: Petite Circles, Create a Flake #1
  • gems from my stash
  • layout: Sketch Saturday #237

Thanks for stopping by at this busy time of year! Hope all of your Christmas preparations are going better than mine!
