I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to be a Guest Designer for Card Patterns this week. Here's my take on Sketch 45. It involved masking, brayering, sponging, stamping and heat embossing, so I got to play around with a few different techniques, as well as a great sketch.
So, you're probably wondering what an Aussie girl is doing making a Christmas card with a Winter theme. A girl can dream can't she?
I just loved the idea of snowflakes being embossed onto vellum. I was inspired by a fellow Tasmanian's Christmas Cards that she recently featured on her blog. You can view her lovely cards at Mae's Cachet.
