Magical Monday and Lots of Snowflakes


It's Magical Monday time again over at There's Magic in the Air. As some of you may know I was guest designer for the Month of September - but Nina has asked me to stay on till the end of December and join the Design Team - I graciously accepted and I am very excited to be working more with some of her fabulous images!! Thank you Nina! This week's challenge is to make a Christmas card using lots of snowflakes with any image from Paper Cupcakes. I choose this adorable Shelly Shell Slidin. I am still having a bit of trouble with digi images and deciding how big or small to print them out - this one ended up a bit bigger than I first envisioned so the card ended up larger than I normally make as well. I colored in the image with my copic markers. The Joy sentiment is cut from a sizzix die cut, the snowflake a MS punch. I added some gingham ribbon and a cute ribbon I had in my ribbon stash with the words warm hands, warm hearts. I did a bunch of layering and added a few brads and a pearl to the centre of the snowflake to finish off. It is hard to believe that in just over 2 months it will be Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful Monday and thanks for stopping by to visit. See you next time!!

Bye for now
Your stamping friend Debbie

I LOVE this image and I LOVE this card!!! It really is fab! A little tip for digis - I always measure the space that I need the digi image to fill and then resize the image in a photo editing programme and then either print it out from there or copy and paste it into word to print. Hope that's helpful - if you need anything else, just give me a shout. Marie xx
