Christmas Card (Marbling)

Hi Friends

I love making cards and over the past few days I have been enjoying playing with supplies and making cards :) Also, before I go on let me tell you that I am having a crafty giveaway which is open to anyone (international folks are most welcome) you can find all the details here -- I'd be super thrilled if you play along :) the prize will be a 25 USD gift certificate to any store you like.

Now onto the card, this is a christmas-holiday themed A2 size side folding card.

I have used the nail polish marbling technique and then die cut the marbled paper with the Cheers die by W & W. (I cut off the s to make it a holiday themed sentiment). 

The background looks like snow I think, it is basically ink blending done through a stencil (used a light tough to keep the colors soft). 

The cute little critter is from the W & W penguin stamplet, I've used only the top part of the penguin, wanted it to look like he is peeking out from the sentiment :) his cap is hand drawn and colored in the colors of christmas- red and green and I like the contrast that offers with the rest of the blue-white card. The critter was colored with the zig markers.

The mat is blue cardstock and this was pasted onto a white card base. The card was finished off with 3 silver sequins. 

Supplies Used:

1. Iris white and blue cardstock 250 gsm
2. Winnie & Walter Penguin Stamplet
3. Winnie & Walter Cutaways- Cheers
4. Ranger's Round Blending tool and foams
5. Silver Cup Sequins
6. Glossy Accents
7. Fevicol Glue
8. Gina Marie x stitched rectangles die set
9. Artplorations Retro Circles Stencil
10. Blue and pink nail polishes
11. Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers- pack of 12
12. Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inkpads- peacock feathers and tumbled glass
13. Ranger's Archival Ink- Jet Black
14. Acrylic Block

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished card:--
