I know this blog has been a bit neglected in the last few weeks. Since October and the 31 days to be precise. For all my lovely followers - this is about to change, again.
December is all about Christmas, and the run up to it, for most. Creepmas for many though that do not like the commercialism that now marks this, supposedly, sacred time and because we love the Hallowe'en holiday more.
For more info on Creepmas, please go read here. The link's are also on the left hand side bar for a few of the groups of people that will be going down this alternative path.
Before I go into Creepmas mode, I want to share with you a card I made for one of the December birthdays I also cannot forget. Both my daughter and step-daughter celebrate their birthdays in December. It will be one of them that gets this card.
Made using just 4 colours, white, silver, grey and blue. All icy, wintry colours. I used a Rick St Dennis image called The Snow Queen.
I have used silver leather look card as a base mat on a white silk card base with a layer of embossed pearlised white on that. A band of linen look white card, lattice edge punch with silver mat topped by white lace. Two lengths of silver organza ribbon added then a frame cut from more pearlised white. That extra shimmer was added by using fusible gossamer fibres. Two snow flakes. One cut using my cricut the other made from punched silver fleur di lis shapes, (mirrored from the dress). Then there's the pearls and clear gem stones to add that extra sparkle. Both girls do like their bling!
There we have it.
