ice, snow and lots of sparkle

Hello my friends. I'm really late with this post as it should have been published on Friday when the Fussy and Fancy challenge went live. But alas life got in the way. I have been uber busy and didn't manage this. Better late than never though.

Our challenge for this fortnight was set by the talented Judy and she chose the theme: ice, snow and lots of sparkle.
Our sponsors for this challenge are Live and Love Crafts and they are offering a £10 voucher to the shop.

For this card I used several dies. The snow globe, trees, sentiment, and snowflakes are Sizzix thinlets by Tim Holtz while the dear are from Cottage Cuts.

The blue background card was covered with Stick it and covered in diamond  snow glitter jewels by Creative expressions.
The snowflakes are also covered in stick it and covered in platinum distress glitter. 
The edge around the red kraft co'ordinations card is iced snow. 

Inside the shaker element, I put in various seed beads, sequins, and distress glitter.
I added further sequins to snowflakes, on the red card and some small pearls for good measure. So with all this glitter and sparkle I hope I fit the bill. For further inspiration please visit the rest of the team on the main FFFC blog here.
See you on the other side, Theresa xx

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:


  1. This is extremely pretty Theresa and I love the sequins outside and the lovely trees, deer and sequins and other sparkly things inside the globe. The sparkly snowflakes look great against that red background too. A beautiful Christmas card. x

  2. Oh this card is just lovely! The recipient will be sure to treasure it.
    Thanks for joining us at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Extra Challenge
