Is anyone else in full winter card making mode. As the weather turns cooler is seems only appropriate that I make cards glittering with snow. This sweet new stamp set from Elizabeth Craft Designs plus some clear glitter creates the perfect backdrop for this fn winter card.
Step One: Trim a piece of 100lb White Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×11 inches. Score and fold at 5.5 inches. Trim a piece of White Christmas printed paper to 4.25x11inches. Adhere the printed paper to the card frame.
Step Two: Using a bit of scrap 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, add some clear double side adhesive from the 5″ x 12″ sheets. Coat the double side adhesive with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.
Step Three: Trim the glittered cardstock to look like snowbanks. Adhere the strips of glitter paper to the bottom of the card to create snowbanks, using three dimensional tape.
Step Four: Stamp the focal image from the Christmas Kids stamp set and a couple of stars onto some 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the image in with colored pencils.
Step Five: Die cut out the image using the coordinating Christmas Kids die set.
Step Six: Adhere the focal image onto the snowbanks.
Step Seven: Using a piece of 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, stamp a sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments stamp set. Turn the cardstock into a banner and adhere to the top of the card. Adhere the stars around the banner.
What you end up with is a very simply, yet fun winter scene. I love how the printed paper create the perfect backdrop for this snow.
