A Christmas card today.
I stamped the Christmas tree image from the Creative Expressions Christmas Swirl Stamp Set using Cobalt Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Crystal Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the largest of the Spellbinders Fleur De Lys Rectangles and inked through the die with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I cut another Fleur De Lys Rectangle out of cobalt card and offset it behind the image panel.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Cobalt Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Five and inked while still in the die with Chipped Sapphire.
For the background, I randomly stamped the snowflake from the same stamp set using Cobalt Archival. I heated it with my heat tool to make sure that the ink was dry and then popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Regal M-Bossabilities Folder. I put it through a second time to extend the pattern. and then inked around the edges with Chipped Sapphire.
I ran a piece of 6mm Hi-Tack Tape along the bottom section of the background piece, overlapping the card at either side. I then ruffled some Royal Blue American Seam Binding along it and wrapped the excess around the back. I added another piece of Hi-Tack Tape along the side and ruffled some more ribbon down it.
I cut some snowflakes out of white and cobalt card using the Spellbinders Create-A-Flake die set. I inked through the die with Chipped Sapphire on the white ones. I layered the snowflakes up and added a 5mm White Pearl in the centre of each one.
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges. I also added a self adhesive pearl swirl.
Hope to see some of you at the Kettering Show today.
Thanks for stopping by.
