Here is MY card I created for the release!
Here is MY card I created for the release!
I chose to feature the new stamp set
'Crystal Snow Flake'.
I just can't seem to resist a snowflake stamp as they are all so different!
As always, I used the Anti Static bag on my card stock,
helping to eliminate any stray EB powder sticking to the paper
where I didn't want it (finger prints can cause this
and the bag ensures this doesn't happen).
I started out by stamping the one of the largest snowflake stamps,
and two of the smaller snowflake stamps with Versamark,
then embossing all with White embossing powder.
Here it is before embossing, and
Next I used TH Distress inks and sponged on
starting first with Spun Sugar, then with Worn Lipstick.
After applying the ink, simply wipe off your snowflakes
with a soft tissue.....an emboss resist technique.
Once I was happy with my ink sponging,
I once again used Versamark and stamped the sentiment,
this time embossing with Black Detail embossing powder.
I added ribbon and a bow to the front card base,
then using twine, I tied a sterling silver snowflake to the bow.
I used 1/2" Tear-ific Tape to add my finished panel to
white card stock and then the pink card base.
I am last on the list, but you should of started with the very talented ERET!
