Let It Snow

This is my card on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today.
Go and check it out and see how this card was created!

One of the newly released stamp sets for July is
Now I don;t know about you,
but I love, love to work with silly characters like these guys,
they just have to make you 'happy'!

I first die cut a square using a Tutti Designs Nested Stitched Square die.
I stamped the image in the center, then colored with my Copics.
I added Pink Spirit Sparkle N Soft Flocking to each flamingo
by first applying Dimensional Glue to each bird.
This glue gives a bit of a 3D effect once it dries.

First applying a tiny bit of glue to each hat pompom,
I then added Sparkling Snow glitter.

I once again used the Dimensional Glue to the snow at the bottom,
then the Sparkling Snow glitter.

For the finishing touch, google eyes were added to each bird 
(sorry I couldn't help!

I set this aside to dry and next cut a Palm Tree die from Frantic Stamper.
The base was colored with Copics and Sakura Glue Pen was added to the fronds,
then Margarita glitter.

I die cut a Let It Snow word from Tonic,
using the Nuvo Large Glue Pen, I coated the die cut with glue,
then adding the Sparkling Snow glitter to it.

The card base is a small 'step' card.
The measurements to cut your card stock are
4 1/4" x 11" and a base panel 4 1/4" x 5 1/8".
Score the larger piece with the 11" piece along the top at
1 1/4' ~ 2 1/2" ~ 4 1/4" ~ 6" ~ 8 1/4"
Fold mountain, valley and repeat.
Use a bone folder to get good creases.

I added 1 1/2" Tear-ific Tape to each of the smaller folds,
just trim off the excess.
Sparkling Snow and Margarita glitters were added to each of those panels (as shown).

The back panel piece I added a piece of 1 1/2" Tear-ific Tape
on the 4 1/4" sides (top and bottom)
and a small piece of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape on each 5 1/8" side.
These were then sprinkled with Sparkle N Soft Pink Spirit Flocking.
I thought it would give it a fun/whimsical look!

I put all the pieces together as shown and lastly added a small
Spellbinders label die cut for a place to leave a message or sign a name.

This is the cutest and fun little step card,
I hope you will give it a try!
