A modern Christmas Card



I borrowed the design for this card from Sue Wilson but i've used non traditional colours. I cut three squares of white card and lay them on top of each other.  Then I chose purple & pink inks & 2 different snowflake stamps and stamped them randomly over the squares.  After that I covered the squares in double sided sheets and spread glitter all over them.  I layered each square on purple card matching up the design as much as possible.  I stamped a Sentiment in matching purple ink & cut it out with a SB die. Then using a Tonic die I cut out a purple mat for it.  I used another SB die to cut out the poinsettia & also embossed it. To finish I added a purple gem to the centre.  I really like the finished result & hope you do too. 


Till next time Jacqui over and out.
