My slimline card has finished dimensions of 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches and features the brand new stamp set called Christmas Snow Globe as illustrated by the talented Tonia Tkach. I chose to use all the elements from the set except for the actual snow globe to show you that you can do so much with this large and super cute stamp set. A panel of pink cardstock was taken and the card base was formed from that and then a panel of the above dimensions was created and splashed up with white acrylic paint that I loosened with a drop of water. This panel was then adhered to the card base.
Next, I created a panel of white cardstock to the finished dimensions of the card. I used a set of 'hill' dies in my collection and passed the panel through my Cuttlebug creating several different snowy edges. These edges were then ink blended softly with Distress Oxide Ink in Spun Sugar and I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set using Versamark Ink and heat embossed in gold. I adhered everything to the card base, piecing them back together like a simple jigsaw puzzle.
On Bristol Smooth cardstock I stamped my images from Christmas Snow Globe and watercolour painted them. They were fussy cut and glittered backed with foam tape and applied to the scene.
The final touch was using a pale gold gel pen to dot in some shimmer along the pink ink blended snow edges and then the card was complete.
Here's a little close up of the watercolour painting and heat embossing of the pretty sentiment.
I really appreciate you stopping by to read about this card today - I do hope you're inspired. Happy crafting!
