Time for another fun SparkleNSprinkle creation!
'Tis the season for Christmas cards, isn't it? I don't know about you, but I sure have enjoyed making them the season! Maybe I will even get them mailed out ;) hehehe
I was excited to work with the ADORABLE Snowman Couple stampset again.
SparkleNSprinkle Supply List:
Sizzix Basic Step-Up Die
Mini Banner Punch
This begin, I cut my cardbase using the Step Up Die and embossed with a "snow" like embossing folder. I wanted a lot of texture and fun in this card! I cut out my other pieces using the die set and the GORGEOUS Hailstorm Craft Perfect Paper and my patterned paper.
I also used the pre-colored Digital Stamp for this card. I just love how you can resize the stamps to whatever proportions required!
I also cut out my wee little banners from the Hailstorm paper. For some reason, I just KNEW I wanted a little banner on this card.
Ok! With me so far? Pretty easy...haha After fussy cutting out my ADORABLE Snowman Couple, I wanted to make it look like they were sitting in snow. I applied a thick layer of the Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and sprinkled on a ton of Shaved Ice Glitter. I set it aside to dry. Sooo pretty!
As it was drying, I set to work on my background piece. I didn't want to use just patterned paper as is - I felt it needed a little something extra. SO, I grabbed my Christmas Fire Embossing Powder AND the Rubber version of the stamp set! I used the sentiment and stamped it using Versamark Ink. Then I heat embossed it with the Christmas Fire Embossing Powder! Perfect!
I used my trusty Tear-ific Tape to adhere it to my step card base.
Next up, I decided I wanted to add some snowflakes! I used the Sticker Paper and a snowflake die to cut out some snowflakes, then removed the protective backing to add Sparkling Snow Glitter! Ta-da! Sparkly snowflake fun!
Final step, as always, assembling and finishing the sentiment! :)
I used the Quicky Glue Pen to add some Gypsy Red Glitter around the Digital sentiment. I stapled my banner pieces to a piece of ribbon and also added a bit of ribbon to the sentiment. Pull Ribbon was added around the base of the card for a little pop. Everything was adhered with my fave -
Voila! Cutie Snowman Couple! :) I finished the look with a hint of Sparkling Snow Glitter on the snowmen! Totally adorable!
To all my American friends, I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving!
