Hi there, I hope you had a great weekend!
Today I’ve got another holiday card and am patting myself on the back because, at this rate, I might actually have enough holiday cards by the time December rolls around ;p
For this card I’ve used one of Paper Rose Studio’s border dies which are unique dies that cut a strip out of the middle of your panel, leaving behind an intricate pattern (sometimes leaves or flowers, this time snowflakes) that holds the two sides of cardstock together.
For this card I started with the background which is a 3″ s 5.5″ strip of Legion Yupo paper. I used two colors of Ranger alcohol ink, Aqua and Patina, and also a bit of Tranquil Alcohol Pearl ink for a some shimmer. I dropped the inks onto the Yupo paper and then helped them spread over the panel by blowing on the ink and moving them around with an inexpensive paint brush which I use only with alcohol inks. I also added a few drops of Ranger Blending Solution to help the colors move. When the panel was covered, I set it aside to dry.
For the front of the card, I used the Snowflake Border Die to cut a strip out of an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock. Then I used a stamp from The Stamp Market’s Joy stamp set to stamp “joy” in Catherine Pooler All That Jazz ink. I stamped part of another sentiment in the set in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink onto a strip of Neenah and then glued it to the snowflake panel.
To assemble the card, I added foam tape on the back of the snowflake panel and adhered it to the Yupo strip before adhering the entire card front to an A2-sized card base.
Thank you so much for visiting!
