It's time for a new challenge at Creative Inspirations and this week our theme is Christmas in July so a good opportunity for me to use a set of Christmas stamps from Inkadinkadoo which I bought in the January sales and put aside for just this sort of challenge :o).
For my first Christmas card since the winter, I stamped the large snowflake circle and cut it out with a nestie die and inked the edge to soften it, I then stamped the individual snowflake and used a punch to cut it again inking the edge, finally adding another contrasting circle behind and layering them all together using foam pads. The sentiment was also part of the stamp set and I layered it with more of the blue card and stamped a couple of tiny snowflakes to tie it in with the PaperArtsy backing paper. A bit of silk binding ribbon and a clear gem in the centre of the snowflake finishes the card off. Our sponsor this week - Letraset are offering our lucky winner a set of pens and a bleedproof pad so pop on over and start your Christmas cards now if you haven't already!
