OBAG DT Card

Another new Challenge today over at

Oldie But A Goodie and the theme is Winter...yep, it's definitely that for sure. There are hardly any leaves left on the trees now and it's soooo dark morning and night :0(

Anyway less of the doom and gloom, here's what I made...
I chose to make a circular card this time using a Marianne die, which I then distressed with frayed burlap so that the embossing would stand out. I have admired the Snowbird stamp for so long that I eventually caved in and bought it and I am soooo glad that I did!!

  
I backed the die cut circle with red card to start with. The stamped image was coloured with Promarkers, the berries had a touch of glossy accents and then flowersoft for the frosty/snowy touches. I then gave the distressing tool an outing and bashed around the edge, then added stickles too for more frosting.


A die cut tag and seam binding to complete. The old bits are the red and kraft card and the seam binding.

 I'm sure you all have some Christmassy or Winter stuff over six months old,
 so why not join in, we'd love to see you and if you are stuck for inspiration pop over and have a gander at what my teamies have done!
