Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

 Hello crafters! A bright, eye catching, not so traditional blue for today's Christmas card giveaway.  I started by creating a Pixie Powder background using Aqua Lagoon and Midnight Blue with a touch of White Pearl.  I allowed it to dry well then cut the Lace Snowflake Frame out of the centre of it. I glued a piece of clear acetate to the back of the aperture, then cut the Lace Snowflake die again in black. I glued the black one back into the aperture opening.  I added mounting foam to the back of the background to raise it and added it over a piece of white card.  I cut four of the Snowflake Edger in white leaving a thin border, then glued them to the edges of the background and mitred the corners.  I stamped my sentiment in black, then cut the centre of the original pixie powdered snowflake frame to create a hexagon frame for the sentiment.  I added mounting foam to raise it then attached it over the sentiment and trimmed away the excess card.  I added it with foam to the centre of the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  Leave a comment if you would like a chance to win this card in the drawing.  The winner will be announced on Saturday's blog post.  All for now, Sue x
