Add Snowflakes - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 9th of June, 2017

For the next two weeks at Winter Wonderland, we are hosted by Cindy, who has chosen the theme: ADD SNOWFLAKES.

So here is my card:

I used Digi Star of Wonder from our sponsor, Little Claire Designs.
I have digitally printed the digi stamp on to X-Press It card and then coloured it using the following Copics markers:
  • polar bears: C1, colourless blender
  • blue/green scarf: BG53, BG45, BG57, Wink of Stella
  • purple scarf: V22, V25, V28, Wink of Stella
  • star: Y08, Wink of Stella
  • ground: C1, C2, Wink of Stella
  • night sky: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
I then used a decorative nesting frame die from KaiserCraft to cut out the image as my Silhouette Cameo is playing up :(
I have then embossed a piece of glitter core essentials cardstock using an embossing folder called Winter Chill, distributed by ultimate crafts (a freebie from a magazine).
I also die cut the snowflake flurry from November 2016 Club La-La Land Crafts from glitter core essentials cardstock.

The embossed piece was adhered to a white card from Envelope Solutions, then I adhered the coloured piece and the snowflake flurry.

As I mentioned, our sponsor for this challenge is Little Claire Designs, who are giving the winner 3 digital stamps of their choice.
