Whiff Of Joy Guest Designer Call

Hi all

Well...I'm at it again...trying my luck at the Guest Designer call at Whiff Of Joy. The challenge for all us would be designers is to make a card or scrapbook page based on this sketch by Katharina, using at least one Whiff Of Joy stamp. An easy tasks I thought, and I was right. This is a fabulous sketch, and those WOJ stamps are so adorable they are literally a 'JOY' to use.

I wanted to do a Christmas card that was a bit different from the traditional ones. So I chose a lilac theme. I wanted lots of texture, lots of glitter, and lots of girly embelishments. I'm really pleased with the result.
I used spotted Bazill for the base card in a gorgeous lilac shade. I stamped and embossed snowflakes onto the side of the card that wouldn't be covered over. I drew lines radiating out from the centre of each snowflake with a glue pen, and sprinkled with crystal glitter.
I just realised I stuck the words in the wrong order...silly moo...I'm going to have to change them now!!

The patterned paper is from All My Memories I think, (Although I've had it so long I can hardly remember). I embossed the white shimmery pearlescent card with a Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. The patterns always show up well on pearlescent card.

I added some beaded ribbon to the edge of the embossed card. The sparkling beads look like tiny little icicles glistening in the snow.

The flowers are from Prima. I pushed a snowflake brad through the centre of each flower, and added a gem to set them off. Extra bling you know...

The image was coloured with Copic's, with a touch of glitter on the hat, and little glossy accents on the musical notes, to add dimension.

I adore this card, and I would love to receive one like it from one of my friends. This makes it all the much harder to part with.
