Snow Family

Another Christmas card, this time it's a Penny Black stamp I've not used in ages.  It's time to start revisiting all the 'stuff' I've not used in a while.

I can't give you any details on the paper, it's from my stash and must be at least four or five years old.  I didn't have any pink card to match my image, so white card was used and coloured in at the edge bits with the same pink Copic I used on the image.  The image was stamped, coloured with Copics and die cut using Labels One, for the shading at the edges I used chalks.  The sentiment is LOTV Christmas Circular Sentiments, matted and layered with Standard Circles Large and Small.  The other die cuts are by Memory Box and are Frosty Border and Snowflake Corner, I love these wee dies and it's hard not to use them on every Christmas card I make.

The Copic list is small this time B0000,00,02,05.  R81,83,85,89.  YR02,07.  W0,1,2,3,5.

I've popped on some sticky jewels to give a bit of bling.  I love the traditional colours of red, green and gold for Christmas decorating in the house but I would get bored to tears using them for all my Christmas cards.  I thought this was a nice change, blue, pink and white and it let me use up some of my older paper.

Hope you have a good and crafty day.  I'm getting cards ready for both the cardmaking clubs I go to, I like to get everything sorted out, coloured, die cut and all the embellishments ready to go with me.  I usually do, in between all the blethering (chatting), three cards for each class, it takes quite a bit of preparation time but no matter how hard you try, you cannot take your whole craft room with you when you go crafting out in the big wide world.
