Frozen inspired...

I made a frozen inspired card for a lovely little girl that we have known since she was born!  

Using my usual 8x8 base card from Hobbycraft I matted and layered between snowflake embossed mirri (Crafters Companion folder) and the striped paper (best of pink paislee).  I used Spellbinder dies Timeless Rectangles and Opulent Ovals with a paper doily in between for the topper.  The ribbon is from Hobbycraft.

I coloured this image from Polkadoodles "Maddie give us a twirl" which I got as a download.  I love Nikki's designs and have quite a few!  And as they are only a few pounds each are really good value.  I'm not happy with the hair but once it's made up into a card I feel it is less noticeable, or hope anyway!!!  I used Spectum Noir alcohol markers and the Crafters Companion pencils on top.

The stamps are from Craftwork Cards, exclusive to Create & Craft for 30 days I think.  I stamped six flowers with Tim Holtz "Peacock Feathers", cut them out and edged with an old black ink pad.  Next I stamped all the word and number stamps with the Peacock Feathers and cut them out and edged with the same ink pad.

Using a Sizzlets snowflake die I cut three from Hobbycraft glitter paper and layered them with foam pads onto the flowers which I doubled up and added a blue gem.

Last night I just knew this card would not fit in the envelope it was designed to go in!  So I got one of my Crafters Companion bags that I got with a christmas kit and made a bag to match!

I should have used a smaller stamp mount as they did not stamp to well on the bag with the folds and string but it all adds to the shabby chic look!

Thank you for stopping by
