Today I have another Christmas card for you. This card is made using the leftovers from Monday’s card. The front of the card is made up of a piece of Whisper White (100730) card stock that was made by cutting out the largest snowflake from the new “Snowfall Thinlits” (149692) die set.
Snowflake Sets coming out in November
This die set is coming out on November 1st and will only be available from Stampin’ Up! in November 2018. I used the new stamp set “Snow is Glistening” (149742) to stamp the images and sentiment.
I started with a 4 1/4″ X 11″ card base of Blueberry Bushel (146968) card stock. When I made my card from Monday, I purposefully placed the largest snow flake die on to a 4″ X 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White (100730) so that it was near the top and so that there would be an even border on the top three sides.
Next, I stamped four of the snowflake clusters from the Snow is Glistening (149742) stamp set using Blueberry Bushel ink (147138). I placed the four stamped snowflake clusters all around the opening in the card stock. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the card using Blueberry Bushel ink (147138). I taped this piece of Whisper White (100730) card stock to the card base using Snail Adhesive (104332).
I love the effect of heat embossed images! They add such elegance to a card with very little effort! When heat embossing always remember to use your Embossing Buddy (103083) prior to stamping with Versamark ink (102283) so you don’t get those extra little clumps of embossing powder (109132) where the powder is not supposed to be.
I rubbed my embossing buddy (103083) over the surface on which I planned to stamp. I used clear Versamark ink (102283) to stamp the medium snowflake in the center of the opening. I applied white embossing powder over the stamped image and flicked off the excess. I let my embossing heat tool (129053) warm up and then applied heat to the embossed snowflake until the powder melts and looks shiny.
