The best part about being a designer and crafter is that you can conjure up something you love that you can never find elsewhere. – Esther Peh
Aye Aye, that is my own quote which I always tell my friends the reason why I love being an artist / crafter and I am very proud to be one!
And here’s my take for the colours:
Frosty Christmas Easel Card
I decided to make easel card because they are a great way to display christmas card on desks in office or at home! A lovely card which can brighten up your day whenever you look at it ❤
I use Fairytale theme Kraiserkraft paper for the base and distressed the edged of the paper using Distress Ink (Faded Jeans) and handstitched the border of the card as well.

Closer look at the boy
The boy (Magnolia) was stamped and colored using Copic Markers and colour pencils before using gloassy accent on his hat and glitters on the whites of his hat and gloves.
I used Spellbinder die cut for the border.I distressed the edge with Faded Jeans Distress ink and added Diamond Sticklers to create the glitter look. I use Die-Namite die cut for the bare branches, and glittered it as well. Martha Stewart lace border punch was used to create the border below the picture. Paper dolly was also used as well! You do notice that there are also many layers here and there, this help to create a lovely 3D look so that it looks really appealing. So brainstorming the colours before making it is very important. Be sure to come up with a palatte and see if the colours works really well with one another instead of clashing terribly.

Layer, Layer and Layer!
Notice all the layerings? If you count, there is about 7 layers. I love it! ❤
A closer look at the flower. I bought the flower from a local craft store, and glitter the center toward the end with Sticklers before adding the blue rhinestone.
This is the picture took during the work in progress stage for creating the tag for the “Marry Christmas” phrase:
Creating the sentiment
I used Maya Road chipboard and add some blue glitter before using Crackle Accents to give a cracked glass look and placed over the christmas sentiment. Love this look! ❤
