Hello there. I have been playing with different media over the weekend, and trying some new techniques. One of those I want to share on a card:
This card took quite a bit of thinking about – and a few changes along the way.
I started by die cutting the Hero Arts snowflakes ornament die out of silver glitter card stock, cutting off the ornament topper to create a circle. I then die cut a silver circle frame using a couple of different sized circle dies, and layered on top.
The blue background to the circle, which was previously created using Brushos, again die cut with a circle die and adhered to the back of the snowflakes.
For the background panel, I tried the ink pad to embossing folder technique – on both sides – debossed and embossed, to see what happened. I tried this several times, with different blue Distress inks, and liked this debossed panel the best. I adhered that to the white card base using 3D foam, then stuck down the snowflakes circle.
I wanted a little more bling, so I added some separate snowflakes die cut in the same silver glitter card, from a Pinkfresh Studio set, snipping and placing as you see – of course – this would have been easier had I done this prior to adhering the circle – but there we are……
I added the foiled sentiment – and then decided to add more shine by adding a little silver gem to each of the little snowflakes in the circle…….who knew there were many of them in there?
I shall be entering the following challenges:
CYHTP – embossing folder – option Christmas
We Love 2 Create – anything goes mixed media
Beyond The Blue – snowflakes
Peace On Earth Christmas – anything goes Christmas
Lil Patch Of Crafty Friends – anything goes
