Ski fun ♥

067Hi there! I hope you are having a lovely Sunday so far!

On Thursday evening the snow came here where I live in Norway. Everything lightens up, and I am sure many enjoy the fun things you can do in the snow:) I was inspired to make a card with the snow theme.

Norway is a country where they say that we are born with ski on:) And it is a really popular sport for everyone in all ages. When I was a little girl I was out in the snow all the time, and loved skiing. This year we haven’t had much snow, you have to go up in the mountains. But it has been really nice skating weather, with ice on all the small lakes and waters here.

010I wanted to make it a bit feminine to all the blue winter colours, and added the purple colour to the papers and image.

The papers I have used are from the lovely Maja Design collections:

Fika-P1 Wintage-vinter-P

Fika: Lejas cafè

Vintage Winter: Winter Wonderland, Winter Night024

I want to show you some of the details on my Easel Card. It has been a while since I made an Easel Card, and it was really fun to make one again.028

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, reinkers. Here you can see the whole card.


The ribbon is a seem binding ribbon which I have coloured with Distress Ink reinker-Faded Jeans, Opalite and water to make it match the blue colours in the Maja Design paper. I curled it up good with my hands and laid it to dry for some hours. When it is dry it looks really crispy and vintage, like you can see here.052 Supplies:
