Silent Night for Crafty Individuals

I thought I would make a card for the Festive Sparkle challenge at Crafty Individuals, where I chose the theme this month.

Have you entered yet and got your 25% off code? That's 25% of everything on the web site. Well worth a look if you haven't seen all the products Jean and Malcolm stock.


I stamped plate 154 and water-coloured it using distress markers.

The snowflake is a chipboard piece which I painted using eco-friendly aged silver, then covered it with glitter. To add extra sparkle I have gone round the edges of everything with cosmic shimmer aqua twinkles.


A metal corner, some lace and a little bow finish it off.

To participate in the challenge use one crafty individuals product and there will be five winners who can choose a stamp of their choice.

Have fun.
