I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Glitter Snowflake Aperture

Here is the next in the line of Christmas cards from the 2010 collection!!!

I was rather pleased with these designs. I like the effect of the aperture in the shaped panel.

A panel was die cut from white card using the Labels 8 Nestabilities die and a snowflake, using a Marianne Creatables die, was die cut at the top of the panel.

The sentiment, from the Dovecraft Studio G Snow Words stamp set, was stamped at the bottom of the Label die cut using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink.

A knot was then tied in a length of green gingham ribbon and wrapped around the die cut panel.

A small panel of silver mirror card was adhered to the card blank and the die cut panel matted over the top with the mirror card showing through the aperture.

The snowflake and the sentiment were then highlighted with Craft Planet Iridescent glitter glue.

I also made this card in a red colourway, using deep red organza ribbon, Anita's Lime Green pearlescent paper behind the aperture, and DecoArt Crystal Glamour Dust to highlight the snowflake and the sentiment.
