Hi Bloggers.

Off to our Christmas Playdate today. Should be fun.

Here’s today’s card –

For the background, I popped the Christmas Quilt Mask onto a piece of Watercolour Card. I sprinkled Plum Twist, Silver Dream and Aqua Lagoon Pixie Powders over – I was a bit specific where I sprinkled the powders trying have the Plum Twist where the reindeers are, Silver Dream on the Snowflakes and Aqua Lagoon on the little squares. I spritzed with water and then removed the mask.

I made a frame out of Cobalt Card using Sue Wilson’s Double Pierced Squares and Double Pierced Squares Set B. I added it to my background using 3D Foam, trimming away the excess using scissors.

I spread some CS Clear Varnish Lacquer over a piece of Acetate. I sprinkled Silver Dream Pixie Powder over and mixed it with the Varnish Lacquer using my fingers. I then sprinkled Aqua Lagoon Pixie Powder over. I scrunched up a piece of White Tissue Paper, opened it out and popped it on top pressing it into the lacquer using a piece of Kitchen Roll. I put it aside to dry (approx 1 hour).

I cut the largest die only from the Justrite Snowflake and Tag Dies out of Cobalt Card. I cut the large snowflake die in the set out of Coconut White Card. I cut the same die out of my acetate background. I glued the die cuts together and added a Craft Consortium Heart Cluster Charm and some White 5mm Pearls.

I cut ‘joy’ out of my acetate background using Joy Oval Frame Dies. I cut the smallest oval die from the same die set out of Coconut White Card and edged with CS Decadent Denim Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I cut the next sized die out of Cobalt Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls to the frame and a couple of mats.
