Commissioned Christmas Card


I was asked to make an elegant card for a lady for Christmas so I used some images/papers I was given that are Art Deco and designed by Nancy Watt for a magazine.  I chose this image and decide to use a different style card I had - but the for life of me I can't remember their name - maybe diamond top???  I have simply used the backing papers and toppers from the magazine and some silver mirri card which proved a nightmare with the camera.  I then used my Cricut to make some snowflakes and out came the glitter on them - yes for people that know me I hate the mess of glitter - but what is a snowflake without some glitter?  The card is then simply finished off with a sentiment and some gorgeous pearls.

This card fits the following challenges:

Flourishes - Glitter
Spoon Full of Sugar - Snow/snowflakes
Little Red Wagon - Do it in 3's - 3 snowflakes and 3 pearls for me
Cricut Cardz - Christmas card - I used my Accent Essentials cartridge for the snowflakes
ABC Challenge - H is for holidays
Dutch Dare - Clean and simple
ABC Christmas - Winter Wonderland
Mark's Finest Papers - Snowflakes
Secret Crafter - Sparkle and shine
2 Sisters - Christmas
Creative Inspirations - Anything wintery/Chrismasy.
