Frosty Christmas

Is it just me or can anyone else feel the weather starting to turn?  I'm sure I caught a whiff of Autumn in the air the other evening and that of course means Christmas is on it's way.  I have two Yule presents bought and wrapped already - this is super organised even for me - and this inspired me to make another Yule card.
For this make I have used the Lelli-Bot Crafts Frosted Christmas kit, I love snow and ice and am definitely dreaming of a white Christmas. :-)

The topper, snowflake charm, sentiment, snowflake embellishment, silver card, patterned paper, white & blue ribbon are all from the kit.  I have cut the silver card using the scalloped blade for the Woodware Trimmer.  The image reminds me of a carousel so I have used an off-cut as a pole.  The whole scene makes me think of Winter wonderland so it seemed appropriate to pick Walking in a Winter Wonderland (the Dean Martin version) for the aptly named Winter Wonderland challenge!

I distressed the edge of patterned paper with a blunt knife blade as I had temporarily mislaid my Hougie distressing tool.

Some spider's web, Anna Marie Designs stamens, buds and a pearl strand embellish the corner behind the image.

The pearl snowflake is from Marianne Designs.  I have embellished the sentiment with silver and white twine from my stash, Polar white Flower Soft from Katy Sue Designs and Crushed Ice Crystals from Anna Marie Designs.  The 'snowballs' are from my stash.

The snowflakes are cut from the silver card included in the kit using Noor! Design Winter Wishes dies.  I have used spider's web across the bottom of the card to create some texture and then split the circle snowflake die cut to create the wave effect.  The topper and sentiment are mounted with Pinflair glue.

Creative Blessings. x
