Frosty and Bright - PanPastels

A different style from me today for my PanPastel UK DT piece and guess what? Another Christmas card - actually another four Christmas cards cos I made three more to go with this one.


The main part of the card is made from Tim's snowflake embossing folder with beige, brown and cream pans used over the background and blues and browns sponged lightly over the snowflakes themselves. 


After that I covered them with glue and glamour dust and when dry I sponged more blue PP over the top and I loved how it clung to the glitter.


I made my own sparkly snowflake vellum with sparkly ep and covered the seam binding with a light dusting of blue PP; I made the computer generated sentiment and punched some small snowflakes to finish off.


So are you up for making something frosty and bright this week? Remember you don't need to use PanPastels and you could be in with a chance of winning a pans starter set from our regular sponsor 'Your Creativity Store'.

Have a great Sunday everyone.

Blue is a brilliant colour for winter and christmas cards!
I have heard than pan pastels are good to work with, but as yet I don't own any...I expect you would recommend them as you use them quite a bit!
Very pretty card!!!
