Crafty Friends Crafty Monday 3

Well yesterday was another crafty day with my friend Sandra. This week we decided to do one of the projects from Making Cards Creative Christmas Magazine. We chose the slider card to have a play with and here is my card. I use my stamps from the PB christmas critters as I really love these and thought that they fit perfectly with the theme. I made the background by masking of the bottom bit with some scrap paper and then chalking the skyline. I then stamped some snowflakes on the sky with versamark and glittered (it's a shame but you can't see it in the photo). The snow area is also glittered. The snowball is a 2.5cm circle punch.

While I was making this I reallised that it fits with the Mothers and Daughters challenge, which is a pop-up card, or a card with movable parts.

Caardvarks challenge - Score

Caardvarks this week are offering the mini score-it board as the prize. and the challenge is to Create a ***NEW*** item that incorporates scoring in a special technique. Anything goes for this one --- you can enter a card (of course!), layout, mini book, or any other type of papercrafting project that uses scoring as a fundamental element of the project.
I would love one of the score it boards so thought that i just have to enter this challenge, and here is my card that i have made with scores. I decided to keep it as neutral as possible so that the images didn't overpower the scoring. Both the stamped images, from Dovecraft have been stamped with colorbox inks and then heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.
I really love this card as it is so simple, so i think later today i might just make a batch of them.
