So…I had a REALLY hard time narrowing down what set I wanted to use. I finally settled on Flurry of Wishes (of course, I ALWAYS need more snowflake sets) and doing a new-to-me technique called Inlaid Words. I showed this technique at my technique class this month and they loved it! Not only is the stamp set new, so is the background embossing folder, Softly Falling, and the “snow” Seasonal Frame Thinlets, plus the fun little wood Snowflake Element…I colored mine with White Craft Ink.
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White cardstock, folded in half.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Marina Mist cardstock is embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder (I can’t decide which way I like it better…more snow at the bottom or more coming down from the top!)
- Across the front is a 1-1/4 x 5-1/4 strip of the silver pattern in Neutrals Collection Designer Paper Stack…then a 1/4″ x 5-1/4 strip of Silver Glimmer Paper under it.
- The Flurry of Wishes large snowflake was stamped on Whisper White with Marina Mist Ink, then cut with the Circles Framelit. At the same time, I cut the word “snow” from Seasonal Frame Thinlets across the center…make sure to save the little pieces from the curly cues! I cut the word again from Marina Mist cardstock.
- The large circle snowflake was placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then I used the WONDERFUL Fine Tip Glue Pen to glue the Marina Mist word snow inside the opening to the base of the card. Adhere in the little curly cue pieces you kept from the snowflake one.
- Finally, I colored the wood Snowflake Element with White Craft Ink and my sponge dauber…let dry…add a large Rhinestone in the center and add to the card with a small Stampin’ Dimensional in the center. I also added Rhinestones in the snowflake ends.
LOTS of sparkle on this card! OK…you are at my blog…Connie Babbert…so find my name and then click on the next person’s link to move forward with the blog tour!
