Hi there, So are you done making your Christmas cards yet? I'm getting there, only another 40 to go. Today I'm going to share one with you that I made using one of my photos taken last week in the early morning of a snow day!
I was lucky - as I was looking out the kitchen window last Tuesday, I saw this rather handsome little chap crossing over the back yard. I grabbed my camera quickly and took a few snaps, most of which were blurred, but then the clever little guy stopped (and posed!).
Unfortunately, you can't really make out his handsome tail, which was a fine specimen, but I thought the picture came out well nonetheless. I immediately thought of what I was going to do with this snap. It got e.mailed to Costco!
I used the Spellbinders Labels 23 to cut out the photo and then taped it down on to a glossy white cardstock base with the die still in place. I ran a silver Uniball pen around the outside of the die, to create a border for the photo.
For the snow on the log and bottom of card, I applied Brushable Glue with our new "chunky" Diamond Dust glitter on top. For the tree branches I used a Sakura Glue Pen and Starfire glitter. See the difference in the textures of the glitters. All these Sparkle N Sprinkle products are acid free, so will not harm your photos at all.
The greeting, which is from Stamp Set 384: Holiday Penguins, was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Silver Lightning. This is a detail opaque powder, so it works well with sentiments.
.. and that was all I did! A quick and effective card for Christmas:
Till next time, "my" fox says - enjoy the holidays!
