Wishes From The Snow Queen

Hello everyone! Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my Christmas Train Card and if you missed my post & tutorial for the Easy Glitter Ice Skates ornaments, be sure to check it out here.

Here's another Christmas card I haven't had a chance to post yet. This one is sporting a frosty Snow Queen look :). Hope you like it! I chose one of my favourite winter colour palettes of whites, blues and pink/purples - I love this colour scheme for frosty makes.

Crystal Micro Glitter
Medium Perfectly Clear™ Acrylic Handle
Mixed Media White Paper
Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink by Tsukineko®

Plus: Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®

Adhesives by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®: 3D Foam Squares Regular - White, Thin 3D Foam Squares Mix - White, DODZ™ - Medium, DODZ™ - 3D, E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips

Chameleon Color Tones Markers: NU1, BL3, BL6, BV4, PR4, PK3

Deco-Art Snow-Tex; Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Faded Jeans, Broken China, Peacock Feathers; Liquid Pearls; background paper - Sandylion Sticker Designs - Snowflakes; May Arts ribbon; decorative brad; paper distressing tool, cheese cloth, metal spatula, glitter pens.

1. Prepare an A6 card blank from purple cardstock.
2. Trim a background panel from Snowflakes paper 1/16 inch smaller than the card base on each side. 3. Using Yule Diamonds and Holiday Words stamps add some stamping to the background panel with the Distress Inks.
4. Distress the edges with a paper distressing tool or scissors. Adhere the panel to the card base.
5. Stamp the Snow Queen image in black onto the Mixed Media Paper and colour in with the Chameleon markers. Fussy cut the Snow Queen and the big snowflake.
6. Adhere the cut - out images to the card over the 3D foam squares - varying the height of the elements.
7. Adhere a piece of cheese cloth along the bottom edge of the card as if the Snow Queen was behind it.
8. Using a small metal spatula randomly spread some DecoArt Snow-Tex over the cheese cloth and sprinkle with Micro Glitters. Allow to dry fully.
9. Tie a double bow from coordinating ribbon, embellish it with a pearl brad and attach to the card using DODZ™ - 3D.
10. Finish the card with Liquid Pearls and glitter pen accents.

Beautifully done! Wish my monitor displayed the glitter better. Such dreamy images and colors.

Maureen Hayes said...

I also have a thing for fairies and Angels, and I can see you do as well! Can I ask where you got this beautiful image? I see you mention she is a cling image but I didn't see a company mentioned. You colored her, and indeed the whole card, beautifully. I like this color combo for winter as well, it has just the right amount of color to make things pop, but also adds an icy/winter feel to it all. I am having so much fun looking through your December posts and appreciate you giving us the extra entries for doing something so fun!

Crafty hugs,

The colour palette for this card is perfect for a Snow Queen and if it weren't for the lovely bow giving it a pop of colour, I would have had the shivers when I saw this card. Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie.
