I also pieced together a Flipagram video showing the making of this card:
- Carta Bella Patterned paper: 4.25"W x 11"H, scored at 5.5" mark
- Two white card stock inserts for the inside panels of the card: 4"W x 5.25"H
- White card stock for the sentiment
- Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil
- Simon Says Stamp Season's Greetings die
- Ranger Enamel Accents, White
- Ranger Embossing Powder, Silver Pearl
- Tsukineko Versamark Ink Pad
- Sizzix Adhesive Sheets
- Liquid Glue
- White Gelly Roll Pen
- Layer the stencil on top of the patterned paper and use a white gel pen to draw in all the snow dots. Most people use embossing paste or paint for these types of stencils. I didn't have either one, so I went with my handy white gel pen. It worked fine, although it was a little tedious at times.
- Cut out the Season's Greetings from the blue card stock. (Note: I realized this step was optional at the end of making the card. I still cut it out, but you don't have to. You can just glue the sentiment directly on the patterned paper. That would be MUCH easier than piecing it back together.)
- Cut the out five Season's Greetings sentiments from the white card stock, but adhere the adhesive sheets to the back before cutting. This makes gluing layer on top of layer 10,000x easier.
- Glue the layers on top of each other. Don't forget the apostrophe mark!
- Stamp the greeting in Versamark ink and cover with Silver Pearl embossing powder. Here's a comparison of how the greeting looks with and without embossing powder.
- And a step-by-step on how to add the embossing powder.
|Step 1: Stamp in Versamark Ink. Step 2: Dip in Embossing Powder. Step 3: Use tweezers to hold and heat emboss.|
- Add enamel accents to some of the snow dots to add more dimension. I chose to add them to the medium and large dots, not the small ones.
- Glue the sentiment onto the card.
- Here's how it looks close-up with the enamel accents:
