My snowflake love affair continues this week with a Christmas tree made up of snowflakes. How cool is that?! I decided on heat embossing as this stamp lends itself very well to that technique and tried out gold, silver and white embossing powders on a Christmassy red background. I can’t even decide on a favourite – I love them all!
For this project I used:
11½” x 4⅛” Real Red card base, scored at 5¾”
5⅝” x 4” Whisper White mat layer
5½” x 3⅞” Real Red top layer
5½” x 3⅞” Whisper White card for the liner
Stampin’ Up! Snow Is Glistening stamp set
Stampin’ Up! Ink in Real Red
First, stamp the liner and envelope with the large snowflakes using Real Red ink and leave to dry.
Use the embossing buddy liberally all over the card top and then stamp the snowflake tree image and greeting using Versamark ink. Fill in some of the gaps by stamping the large snowflake using Versamark. Apply your preferred embossing powder and set with the heat gun. Apply rhinestones to the centre of the large snowflakes.
Adhere the top layer onto the white mat layer and then stick this onto the card base. Adhere the liner to the inside and you’re all finished.
Super quick and super classy!
