We're dreaming of a white Christmas here at C.C HQ so DT Sticker Kitten's latest festive card suits our mood perfectly!
"This is the first card I made, and I began by covering an ivory scalloped card blank with a square of blue snowflake decoupage paper that I’d torn from the larger sheet. I prefer to tear decoupage paper as it gives a more rustic or shabby chic feel to the card to have rough edges. I always tear along a ruler so the lines stay relatively straight and you don’t rip through the whole thing! I used double sided tape to attach the paper as it’s translucent and you don’t want to be able to see any glue through it."
"Next I die cut a heart using some pretty pink polka dot paper from the Craft Consortium Wild Rose paper pack. I carefully glued the centre of the heart (leaving the sides free to curl forward) and stuck it in the centre."
"To create the border across the front I cut a strip of pretty white lace from the Craft Consortium Always & Forever wedding range and adhered it with double sided tape. I then glued a strip of blue polka dot paper across the front and placed a gorgeous pearl and diamante heart gem in the centre. To finish off the card I attached a stamped sentiment in the centre of the heart and added lots of Snow-tex for a snowy effect along the heart, border and sentiment. You could also adapt this design for a winter wedding card."
"For this next card I again used an ivory scalloped card blank as they are a good size (6×6″) and give quite a sturdy luxury feel to the card. I used the same technique as before to attach the background square of decoupage paper, and then I added a smaller square on top."
