I hope you have a really great weekend.
Today we have woken up to
a beautiful, sunny winter’s day with an amazingly heavy frost.
Today’s card is the third
one I made when I was on a roll on Wednesday, using the snowman image from the Christmas
Magic Stamp Set.
After having made the first two cards prominently white, I
decided to make this one using Designer Series Paper (DSP).
I started my card with a
base of Crumb Cake Cardstock (CS) with a layer of Whisper White CS and a top
layer of Crumb Cake CS.
The DSP I chose is from the Candy Cane Lane DSP, and I cut a wide strip to fit the width of
the top layer of Crumb Cake but leaving approximately 0.75” exposed top and
As previously, I stamped
the snowman using Basic Black Archival Ink onto a square of Whisper White CS.
I painted him slightly differently from the previous
two cards and used the following Marker Pens: carrot nose – Pumpkin Pie; holly
leaves – Wild Wasabi; holly berries – Real Red; hat and buttons – Smokey Slate;
gloves – Crumb Cake; scarf – Crumb Cake & Real Red; left twig arm – Soft
I adhered the
image with Tombow to a layer of Crumb Cake CS,
and left a small amount exposed on all four sides.
I painted around these four
sides with my two-way glue pen and then dipped them in Dazzling Diamonds.
The sentiment I chose is
also from Christmas Magic Stamp Set, and
I stamped it onto a piece of Whisper White CS using Basic Black Archival Ink.
with the snowman image, I adhered the sentiment with Tombow onto a layer of Crumb Cake CS, and left a small amount exposed on all four
The final touch was to
adhere the image and the sentiment to the card front using Dimensionals!
Looking at my finished card
now, it would also look nice if I’d added some small snowflakes or stars
stamped tone on tone or with Versamark in the plain Crumb Cake area above and
below the DSP.
What do you think?
The layouts and ideas I used for these three cards can be used for many different images currently available,
as well as the sentiments.
