Sharing a card I made today for a challenge using Super Cool Pals from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. I really love anything Christmas and winter related and who couldn’t resist this adorable snowman and little fox?
To make my card, I started out by stamping the image using my MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it. I die cut the background paper using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. It’s from Stampin Up’, but I received it in a Mystery Box, so I’m not sure what paper pack it comes from. Then I tore up some Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper and taped it to the bottom of the panel.
The snowflake was die cut using Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper 12″ x 12″ and Tim Holtz – Sizzix Thinlets – Paper Snow Flakes. I ran the paper and my finished coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station and also the Holiday Glitz paper was put through it as well before I die cut it. This allowed me to make stickers out of both items. For the sentiment, I used my MISTI, Versa Fine – Onyx Black and then embossed it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was then heat embossed with my Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Once this was done, I die-cut the sentiment with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles and edged all around it with Kraftin’ Kimmie – Lovely Lagoon Ink. I also edged all around the snowy background with the same ink.
For the assembly, I started out using the base from Recollections -Christmas Cards and Envelopes set at 5.5″ x 4.25″. Using double-sided tape, I adhered the snowy background to the base. Then I added my main image and snowflake. The sentiment was popped up using some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and Stickles – Diamond glitter was added to parts of the snow to finish the card off.
