A Blue Christmas & An Easel Card

Good evening. My first card for today is for Colour Create were the colours this week are
and it also fits the theme at By the Cute & Girly - Winter Wonderland.
I started by cutting an aperture out of the centre of a white square basecard - using a plain circle nestie. I also created a scalloped frame using a large plain circle 'nested' inside a larger scalloped circle from glitter card.
I then inked the front of the basecard with Tim Holtz distress ink in Faded Jeans and randomly stamped the text star over the top.
Using the circle that was cut out of the front of the card, I inked it with Faded Jeans distress ink and stamped the three Christmas tree images along the bottom and the star image top right - again with Faded Jeans distress ink. I added a generous sprinkling of Glamour Dust to the trees and an adhesive gem stone to the centre of the star. This was then mounted onto a white scalloped circle and attached to the inside of the basecard - in line with the aperture.
I finished the card with a white and silver ribbon and bow.
My next card is for Totally Gorjuss challenge - this week the theme is 'bling' and for SCSC
where they want to see an easel card. I love these shaped cards and they really are quite easy to do.

I have coloured this gorjuss girl with Promarkers and paper pieced her dress.

Hope you have had a good day.

Thanks for popping over.
