Blue and white say winter sports to me – so ski jump from LOTV seemed a good addition to these colours. I coloured the skier with promarkers, in various shades of blue, and cut him out on his own – so no dog and mountains. I glued him onto a piece of card which I embossed with trees – not easy to see on the photograph – and stuck this onto a Spellbinders Fleur de Lys die. The post card is from the LOTV Christmas icons set and the small sentiment tag is also by LOTV. The backing paper is a Raspberry Road design and the gems are from my stash, coloured with a promarker. I frantaged the Marianne die trees and added glamour dust to the Joy Craft snowflakes.
Tip -Some items on craft web sites are only available in the UK so I searched here in France for wax paper, to enable me to cut out intricate dies more easily. I was unable to find any such product so now I save the wax paper which is inside cereal packets. Once wiped over with damp kitchen paper it is a fantastic aid to cutting those difficult dies – and it costs nothing.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges –
