Hello, I wanted to make simple Christmas card with only a few colors and this is the outcome:
I cut out the rectangle, little bit smaller than the standard card. I took the embossing paste and generously smooshed it all over rectangle piece. I left it quite textured so that it looks more like snow. While it was still wet I sprinkled the glitter all over it and let it dry for a few hours. In a meantime, I die cut the frame, houses, and trees from a white card stock. For the frame, I used Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangles and for the houses and trees, I used dies from the Mama Elephant. For more dimension, on the top of the trees and on the roofs of the houses, I used snow marker.
When everything was dry I have put foam squares on the back of my die cuts and the frame. I adhered them to the embossing paste piece. For the sentiment, I cut out “merry” from a red card stock using m Silhouette machine. Then I heat embossed it with the red glitter embossing powder. I added foam squares on the back of sentiment and adhered it in the top center of my main piece. I also white heat embossed “Christmas” sentiment on a kraft card stock, cut it in a rectangle and adhered it bellow the “merry” sentiment using foam squares. For my card base, I used kraft card stock. I also took red twine and wrapped it three times around the card base. For some sparkle and shine, I adhered few snow sequins and one red gem.
I am applying this card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog. The theme for this week is Ice inspiration, and if you want to know more about this challenge, click on the image bellow.
