Secret Crafter Challenge 3


Today is my 1st time taking part as a Secret Crafter DT member and this is my card for the challenge! This week there is no sketch but a theme, set by the lovely KIM which is "Blue, White and a little bit of snowflake!". Again any project can be made as long as it fits with the theme.I have used a 6 x 6 card and used backing paper from the Forever Friends Christmas Snow pad. The embossed cardstock is a Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder and buttons from my stash. I've coloured the snowman with Prisma Pencils and Sansodor and cut out and matted adding some stickles to him. The sentiment is from HOTP and the flowers behind were white but have sprayed with Glimmer Mists and dried with a heat gun. If you look closely, you can see small area's have dried like glass on the stem. Finished the card with a punched snowflake and stamped border. I really enjoyed this challenge and am thrilled to be a part of the team. They are all a lovely bunch of girls and have made me feel very welcome. Have a lovely weekend everyone, no doubt I will be crafting again at some stage.
