Holiday Card Workshop - Day three

Hello Friends,

I've had such a wonderful time this afternoon making this lovely card........




Over at the Holiday Card Workshop class the lovely, talented and most giggly lady, Julie Ebersole, showed a video of herself making a beautiful card using a mixed media technique that I couldn't wait to try.

Kristina (also lovely, talented and giggly) reminded us that we can use our score boards to make quick and easy backgrounds so I included a bit of that with this card too!

The card looks so much better in real life.  I took many photos of it but my photography still isn't up to much, even though I've bought a light box now (with a photographers spot light - no less - lol !).   Here is a closer photo, let me know what you think........



I am back to using supplies I've had for ages, the embossed images are some of the first Cuttlebug tiny embossing folders I ever bought for my machine, the punched snowflakes are from a Martha Stewart punch, I've had for at least 2 or 3 years and the background is a stamped Stampin' Up stamp (set -Serene Snowflakes) stamped with my Snow Cap paint dabber.  The base card is a white hammered effect card and the pool colour (Jennifer & Julie's favourite colour at the moment) is from Stampin' Up.

I finally embellished with a little extra dazzle using Stampin' Up's Dazzling Diamonds and Glossy Accents.

To find out how to make this you will just have to pop over to the classroom, sign up and watch the video :) !!!

Happy crafting.

Love how you used this technique! You're right--it's hard to photograph and the results really are more beautiful in real life! Lovely work on this!
