Magical Christmas

 My card for Virginia's View challenge #5 - Die Cut, is a Christmas card featuring snowflakes. I die cut two sizes of snowflakes, used the smaller negative to add some texture paste flakes to my card top; I'd added some glitter to see if I could get them to sparkle (the photo  is terrible as it all looks much darker than it actually is and the snow flakes look cream). After they dried I created the snow bank and trees and then laid the wax die cuts on the page and sponged Distress Inks in blue and mauve, then I lightly spritzed it with Perfect Pearls, added some gems. I sponged the two die cut snowflakes with DI and spritzed them too and used a foam dot to give dimension. I stamped and embossed my sentiment and then layered the card with white and pale blue onto a white card base. I'm really happy with the result - it's soft and magical. I am also going to post my card to Christmas Cards All Year Round - for July the theme is non traditional colours.  Thanks for taking a peek Robyn


  1. This is so dreamy, Robyn!! I hate that photos never capture the sparkle and shine that are on our cards IRL! Thank you for the wonderful description of what you did so that I could get a glimmery visual from your words!! Excellent job!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Love this wonderful holiday card!

  3. Beautiful inking and spritzing, Robyn! I love the shiny snowflake and glittery background! Thanks so much for playing Virginia's View Challenge!
