Christmas Card Club - Roll Up, Roll Up

Hello to all my friends and blog buddies. Well the weather forecast is for more snow, so it doesn't feel too out of  place to be making a Christmas card! LOL!

This is my entry for the CCC challenge which is "Roll Up, Roll Up, Snowballs and Glitter."


My Card


Click on image to enlarge picture

The image of the boy is a Polkadoodles stamp and  the tub of snowballs is a digi image that I found on the internet,  both coloured with Promarkers.  I diecut it with the smallest SB Grand Labels 1 and after embossing it I cut  around the embossing  line and then used the same size die to make a tight blue mat. The dark blue snowflake paper is from my stash and I'm afraid I don't  know what make it is.  The sentiment is  from Little Claires Designs and diecut with SB Lacy Circles.  The snowflakes are a combination of SB Create a-Flake 4 and Mariannes Swedish Snowflakes cut from glitter card. I used Twinklets Diamond Dust for the snowballs. The blue pearls are Hobbycraft adhesive gems - and I have replaced the one which seems to have jumped ship!! It's amazing that you never actually see the flaws until you look at the picture!! There is quite a lot of glitter on this card but it isn't showing in the picture.

Well, that's another Christmas card under my belt. This next Christmas should be less stressful - at least from the card point of view!

Have a good day everybody, and I hope your weather is not too bad!

Love and hugs from Christine xx

  6. A lovely card Christine and it suits the todays Dutch weather, which seems being the same as over there in Oxfordshire!
    Idea: You could enter the weekly '52 weeks of Christmas' on my daughters blog: http://bruggetje.blogspot.com with this card! You don't have to make a card every week for entering.
    Have a nice day! Lia xx
