I made this card in 2 of my favourite colours – turquoise and purple, and they are non traditional/ contemporary colours for a Christmas card.
I used a Pink Gem image – Chloe with penguin – and coloured her and her little penguin friend with promarkers and distress ink. The fur on Chloe’s jacket and boots is glittered with Stickles frosted lace.
The turquoise paper is from Raspberry Road’s Winter Wonderland and the purple candy stripe paper is from Nitwits. The large snowflake is a Joy Crafts die, which I frantaged with shabby white. I cut around the images of Chloe and the penguin, placed them on a tree embossed circle of white card and dotted liquid pearls around the edge.
The ribbon is from my stash, as is the card candi – coloured with promarkers to match Chloe’s gloves and trousers. I also placed 2 other card candi at the edges of the ribbon. The sentiment is from LOTV icons and has been embossed with glitter powder, as have the 2 punched snowflakes.
