Yesterday I decided to
use one of the Foil Snowflakes and see what kind of a snowflake I’d get
if I used one as a stencil.
I used Real Red Ink on Whisper White
Cardstock (CS) with one of our sponges I’d cut into four.
I allowed my
sponging to go over the edge but tried to keep it in as much
of a circle as possible.
I chose one of my
favourite colour schemes for this card – black, red and white.
started with a Whisper White CS card base, a layer of Real Red CS, and a
top layer of Designer Series Paper (DSP).
I chose one of the Basic Black on Whisper White music sheets from
the Merry Music Specialty DSP.
Basic Black Archival Ink and Whisper White CS, I stamped the sentiment
which is from the Christmas Happiness Stamp Set.
After die cutting it
using the Stitched Shapes Framelits circle die no. 3, I layered it on a
Basic Black CS scalloped circle, and then onto a larger Real Red CS
Both the circle dies were from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.
I adhered this into the centre of the snowflake, and then
adhered the snowflake onto the card front using Dimensionals.
I’ve used a music design DSP, I decided to stamp three of the drummer
boys from the Musical Season Stamp Set.
I used Real Red Ink on Whisper
I had considered using Craft White Ink on Basic Black
CS, but decided against it!
As the pattern on the DSP was at varying
angles, I adhered two of the drummer boys at different angles as much
It’s so much easier not having to worry about getting things
in straight lines!
was happy with the finished card, but I would have liked to cover the
solid red uppermost point of the snowflake.
I experimented with
ribbons and bows, but nothing looked right!
the card, I adhered a layer of Real Red CS, with a layer of Whisper
I finished the card off by adhering the third drummer boy in
the bottom right hand corner.
have my two cards and 3D project ready for classes this weekend, and
no, this isn’t one of them!
Until tomorrow, happy
