Welcome back, everyone! Today is my last day guest designing over on the Twine It Up Blog. Since we are heading into the holiday season I want to share a holiday/seasonal card. I’m using the Let It Snow Stamp Set along with Trendy Twine in the color Gray Licorice.
This month has been a blast on the Twine It Up Blog and I found myself reaching for products that I rarely use. I should use them but we sometimes find ourselves getting comfortable in our ways, even crafting. As I sit here writing this post what I want more than anything is to be in my craft room with a few stencils and shimmer paste. I love that stuff.
To my surprise, I don’t own a snowflake stencil, wha?! Okay, grab a stencil that looks like falling snow. YES! I have one of those. And that’s how this whole card started. It’s super easy to do.
Using a heavyweight coverstock, you know that #110 stuff, add shimmer paste over a stencil and pretend your icing a cake. Hey, it’s what I do. Set the card panel aside to dry and clean up stencil and spatula. Die-cut or stamp a snowman, put the snowman together or color if you stamped. Using patterned paper and the Let It Snow Stamp Set stamp sentiment using black ink, cut at an angle the patterned paper and a scrap piece of paper, want the angles to be exact? Cut the patterned paper and scrap on the angle together, then cut the length on the opposite ends. Use the scrap piece of paper to wrap twine around. Adhere patterned paper right below twine, add snowman with 3D mounting foam, finish the snowman off with enamel dots. Add 3D mounting foam to the back of the stenciled card panel adhere to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ top-fold card base. Add patterned paper/snowman to the bottom of card panel using 3D mounting foam.
Thanks for stopping by.
