Christmas Happy Mail

Today I am sharing a card I made for a "Non-traditional Colours" Christmas challenge. 

I am ink and glitter up to my eyeballs but I had so much fun putting this one together. This one is pretty CAS for me but I am very happy with how it turned out. 

After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers I gave my manicure scissors a run for their money and fussy cut it. The background was creating blending two different shades of blue and some coloured "snow". I used a border embossing folder to create my edge on the second piece of white and added some sparkly gumdrops to finish it off.

  1. Lovely card. You know I would LOVE this one...and it's not just because of the penguin. I love the way you popped the image up off the lovely background. Thanks for joining us at Holly Jolly this week for our "Non-Traditional Colours" challenge. Hope to see you again. Good luck.
