On the Bubbly Funk Forum we have a 25th Club, where we try to commit to making some Christmas Cards by 25th of each month, with a view to having some ready in time for Christmas. I wasn't sure if I could do this and time will tell whether I will continue or not, but I am certainly going to try to do two a month.
Joanne set a theme for January which was Blue, Silver, Glitter and Swirl so I've incorporated those elements into the two cards I've made...
I inked the card blank with Distress Ink and then added a snowflake stamp in two colours of ink.
I added some sequin waste and the silver snowflake, and the swirl is stamped and then heat embossed. I added some crystals and dots and there is a tiny blue butterfly just above the snowflake - not sure if that is clear.
I sanded away part of the inked design before I stamped on the sentiment, bottom right.

This is a stamped image which I coloured with Copics, heat embossed a glittery frame around and stuck to a card blank, the edges of which were inked with Distress Inks. The border is created using a Martha Stewart deep edged punch and I stamped a swirl over the top.
The snowflake is bedded onto a crocheted flower and secured with a brad.

Thanks for the theme Joanne! I enjoyed making these. It always seems a shame to only use Christmas and festive crafty bits for such a limited time in the year. How nice to be able to spread that use throughout the rest of the year. Onto the next theme now which TraceyR has set - pop onto the Forum and join in!!
