I hope you are having a wonderful evening! Today I had so much fun playing with some of the new Snowflake Showcase products! I played with the Snowfall Thinlits Dies (149692) and Snow is Glistening stamp set (149742). One of the cards I made is the Berry Burst Blizzard Wishes Card.
Today’s card color combination is made up of Berry Burst (ink 147143/card stock 144243) and Blackberry Bliss (ink 147092/card stock 133675). I also used Glitter Enamel Dots (146934) in Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mamba. I used the Dark Rich Razzleberry (144583) Blends alcohol marker on the Melon Mamba Glitter Enamels to make them darker pink. I also used a holographic paper from my stash for the center snowflake.
Initially I cut a 4 1/4” X 11” piece of Berry Burst card stock (144243). I scored and folded the card stock at 5 1/2”. Then I cut a 4” X 5 1/4” piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock (133675). Next, I cut a 4” X 5 1/4” Whisper White (100730) card stock. Using my trusty Big Shot (143263) and the largest snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits Dies (149692), I cut the snowflake from the upper part of the Blackberry Bliss( 133675) card stock piece. I made sure to run the sandwich through my Big Shot (143263) an extra two times. This makes using my Piercing Tool (126189) to remove the little pieces from the snowflake much easier. I cut a midsize snowflake from the holographic paper.
Adhering the Snowflake Shapes
I started by using my double sided adhesive on the back of the Blackberry Bliss (144243) card stock piece. My process included putting the card stock on release paper so I would not get adhesive anywhere but the card stock. I like this method better than using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (119755). With Liquid Glue my fingers get so sticky that it makes handling the delicate pieces more difficult. When I apply the tape I make sure to start on the biggest and strongest part and work toward the outside or weaker parts.
So, for the background, I worked carefully taping from the outside toward the opening in the card stock. I applied adhesive to the snowflake shapes on release paper too. With the snowflakes I worked from the middle of the snowflake to the tip and applied tape on the middle of each arm of the snowflake. I offset the large snowflake so more of the Berry Burst would show from the background. The holograph snowflake was centered on the large snowflake.
Next, I finished the card details. I added a Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dot (146934) to the center of the holographic snowflake. I stamped the sentiment “Sending a Blizzard of Wishes for a Wonderful Season” Snow is Glistening stamp set (149742) to a scrap of Berry Burst card stock (144243) using Blackberry Bliss ink (147092). I punched out the sentiment with the Everyday Label (144668). Then I trimmed off part of the top and more of the bottom of the label. I sponged the edges of the label with Blackberry Bliss ink (147092). after that I applied the three Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots (146934) that I colored with the Dark Rich Razzleberry (144583) alcohol marker to the upper part of the label.
Finally I attached the Whisper White (100730) card stock to the inside of the card. I stamped the sentiment “Merry Christmas to you and Peace on Earth to all the World” from the Snow is Glistening stamp set (149742) using Blackberry Bliss ink (147092).
