Entwined Cross for Leonie

Hello lovely peeps

I'm back with another card using Leonie's Entwined dies. For this one I have used the Cross Base and the Cross Swirls.

 To start off I dabbed some pumice stone and aged mahogany distress inks onto my craft mat, then spritzed with water and dragged some watercolour card through it.
I cut an aperture out of this with the Cross Base die.

I scored a line down the left hand side, leaving a flap to fold over. I glued this to another square of card to make my own card base.

To make a frosty window pane I sponged some white gesso over a piece of acetate, then glued this inside my aperture.

I cut the Cross Base again with dark grey card and glued the small outline on top of the 'frosted glass'

I inked another panel of watercolour card the same as above and stamped several snowflakes on with pumice stone ink. I flicked a little diluted aged mahogany ink on with my fingers.

This went on the inside of the card to hide the join and I stamped a greeting in the corner.

I coloured some white cord with a grey alcohol marker and wrapped it around the spine of the card then added the Cross Swirls die-cut from dark grey card, entwined with the larger outline from the Cross Base cut in silver mirri card.

I cut a Snowflake Base from stamping card and coloured it using the same technique as Iused for the background.

This was entwined around the cord on the front of the card
