Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions. I am lucky enough to teach on cruise ships and also get the chance to demo at The Big Stamping and Scrapbooking Show at Alexander Palace. I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

Believe!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!

Another Christmas project for Creative Expressions but very different from all the previous ones.

I'll be filming at Warwick Folk Festival while you're reading this!!

Anyway, let's get started.....

Cut a square of Coconut White card slightly larger than needed.  Stick a square of Creative Expressions Double Sided Adhesive over it.  It's much easier if the card is a bit bigger!
Rub an anti-static bag over "That Special Touch-Icicles Mask" then place it onto the double sided adhesive.  The anti static will help when you want to lift it off.

Apply Cosmic Shimmer Periwinkle Polished Silk Glitter to the adhesive.  Press down to make sure it holds then tap off any excess.

Remove the mask and apply Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Snow Glitter Jewels to the remaining area.
Trim the excess card off.  Matt and layer with Foundations Vintage Silver Card.

Emboss a piece of Coconut White card with the A4 Snowflake Lattice Folder.
Matt and layer onto the Vintage Silver card.
Stick the glittered square on top.

Ink up the sentiment from the A5 Pine Cone Christmas set with Black Archival.  Stamp onto Coconut White and heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Cut out with the Frames and Tags-Pierced Flags Dies.
Draw around the outer edge of the die onto the Vintage Silver card to make a matt.  Glue into position after shaping it.

Cut out the Illuminated Christmas Tree Die using the Vintage Silver card and glue into position.

Tie a triple bow from white Seam Binding.  Glue on then add a Silver Dazzler to finish.

And there's the finished card!

Hope you like it.  It's so easy to make but looks so effective....my favourite sort of Christmas Card!

Well, that's it for this week.  As always, many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments.  I'll be back next Thursday with another Christmas Card and if you leave a comment on that post telling me which one is your favourite, I'll pick a winner and send it to you.

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
