Have a ball!

So it's nearly Christmas, so that makes it Party Season too.  So I decided to make a winter inspired party card using one of the Lil' Grumpies by Smeared Ink.  I love Smeared Ink stamps, something a little different to mainstream images, but always fun to work with; real quality unmounted red rubber deep-etched images trim and slap on an acrylic block.

I used a card blank, patterened paper, scalloped border die-cut and chipboard tag all from Issue 37 of Let's Make Cards.  Not a magazine i get that often, but the quality of items with it are always quite good.  I stamped my Lil' Grumpy onto white cardstock with Black Memento Ink, and coloured with Promarkers.  I then cut this out and layered it onto a scallop oval die-cut.  To add a little texture to my card, I added some scraps of sequin waste in the background.   To finish it off I added some purple irridescent foam snowflakes, which i added gems too, along with a few gems scattered over my card.

I hope you like it, Thanks for looking
