Hi there everyone!

It is Tuesday and my turn over on the Indigoblu blog today.

For my card today I am using something a little bit different ……… coffee filters!

That’s correct ….. coffee filters … who know they could come in handy for crafting, they give such a lovely texture, plus they are so versatile, this is a little 5 x 5 tri fold window card.

I used cottage garden acrylic paints for my project today, I made up some custom colours in spray bottles to use and I love the colours.

Indigoblu Supplies used :-

Noel Dinkie Stamp
Flitterglu Starter Kit
Gin & Tonic Megaflake
Banana Custard, Rich Cocoa, Park Lane, Black Gee Soo Good and frosty sky Cottage garden Acrylic Paint
Retro Christmas Stamp Set (Mistletoe)
Other Supplies :-

1 x Coffee Filter
Flat back pearls & rhinestones
Versamagic white chalk ink
1 x Trifold Card
Silver Mirror Board
Iced Spruce Distress Ink

Using the coffee filter with the project gives the card a lovely texture and you just want to touch it all the time 🙂

I hope you enjoyed the wee Christmas card today, as always, thank you so much for popping over today.
