It's a one layer card that doesn't look like one layer - and I like that. It's ever so simple to make: Just stamp the snowflakes in a variety of blues, mask the inside of the card and sponge ink round the edges to form a frame. Unmask and finish with a little shading round the frame with grey watercolour pencil, some rhinestones and a sentiment. Et voila!
Here's a close up of the snowflakes - aren't they beautiful?! I love the iciness of the blues and how they're warmed slightly by the Naturals Ivory card stock.

Talking of iciness reminds me of the time I took the children to visit an open air skating rink in London. My youngest son was maybe four or five years old at the time and couldn't get on with skating at all. When asked if he was enjoying himself he shook his head. "I don't like it," he said. "It's too slippery!"
The weekend is upon us again and Buckingham is to have its Christmas parade tomorrow. That same son will be taking part so I'll need to come up with a costume for him - I don't know what yet, but I think thermals will be featuring quite heavily!
Whatever you have planned for the weekend have fun and keep warm! See you soon,
