I went to the Range a couple of weeks ago and found this lovely pack of 8 x 8 paper called Xmas Blue from Dovecraft and I also bought the brads to match.
I came across some die cut snowflakes that I had bought from a show last year in green but I thought they were too dark for the paper, so I used a Mica Magic Lime Gloss and gently stippled over the snowflakes and was amazed at the lovely colour match I had got with the paper. My main card was a white hammer but it looked to bright with the paper and snowflakes so I found out a ColorBox pigment ink pad in Celadon and went over the white card which I then heat set. Then I stuck my paper on, placed my snowflakes on which I'd 3D, placed silver peel offs in the corners, coloured a silver peel off Merry Christmas with a Sharpie permanent marker from Tesco and then finished off the card by placing sparkly peel off dots on the ornaments of the background paper.
The photo makes the card more blue than green but looks quite good in the flesh. The main thing is that I am happy with it.
