Hi there, I hope you had a wonderful Friday!
Today I’m dipping my toes into winter cards and using some old and new products from Avery Elle. I’ve waited a whole year to use these cute little girls!
The girls, seal, small snowflakes and sentiment are from the Polar Pals stamp and die sets. The large snowflake is from the Snowflakes stamp and die sets, and the frame is from the new Wonky Scalloped Frames die set.
I started by stamping the girls and seal in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock. Then I colored them in:
Pinks: RV63, RV66, and RV69
Purples: BV01, BV02, BV04, and BV08
Shoes: E21 and E23
Hair: C3, C5, and C7
Skin and cheeks: E50, E53, and R20
Seal: C2, C3, and C5
Then I die cut them out and set them aside.
The background is an A2-sized piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth. I cut a hilly snowbank mask out of scrap paper and then used foam blending tools to create the sky using Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks. Then I heat embossed the small snowflakes using Versafine ink and white Hero Arts embossing powder. I also used Copic C1 and 0 markers to add a bit of very subtle shading to the white snowbank. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
I die cut the frame four times and then stacked and adhered the layers together.
I did the same for the large snowflake which I also inked with the same Distress inks.
To assemble the card, I glued the frame down and then glued the seal flush to the card. I popped up the girls with foam tape and then glued the large snowflake down. To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.
Thanks for coming by!
