'X is for Xerox'
Basically, we want you to 'Xerox'...copy...CASE...a card by either myself or one of my lovely design team buddies for one of this year's ABC Christmas challenges. There are links to all of this year's challenges in the sidebar of the ABC Christmas blog...with plenty of cards to choose from!
We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge:
The prize from Digital Delights is 3 of their wonderful images.
And the prize from Bugaboo is 7 fabulous images!
I don't have the stamp that Lols used, or even anything remotely like it, so I used tree stamps from my 'Reindeer' staamp/die combo set by Hero Arts & Sizzix...embossing them in white. To make the falling snow, I used a Versamark pen to draw random dots, and embossed them in white too. I then blended 'Tumbled Glass', 'Faded Jeans' and 'Stormy Sky' Distress Inks over the top...then spritzed it with a little water to give the effect of snowflakes in the distance. The rest of the card is pretty similar...I used my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder for the embossing...rubbing some blue ink lightly over the top...I think Lols used Core'Dinations 'Whitewashed' card...and I was going to...but I'd used up all the blue pieces in my pack! I used different ribbon (from the Ribbon Reel), and snowflakes too (mine were cut using a Marianne Designs Creatables die)...but it still looks pretty similar.
