For this card, I did not use the stamp set that came with the bundle; only the stencils and dies. And, I only used four of the five stencils. This bundle is chockablock full of products. These stencils are nice, too! They have markings for lining up your cardstock panel in either portrait or landscape mode. I chose portrait for this card.
To begin, I inked the A1, A2, B1, and B2 stencils onto a Neenah Solar White 80# panel of cardstock in Altenew inks: Sea Breeze, Tide Blue, Persian Blue, and Sapphire. I used each stencil on the top and bottom of the panel. After inking, I used a glue pen to draw over a few of the snowflakes and then sprinkled Ranger Rock Candy glitter on them (which seems to be sold out every place I looked).
Next, I inked (heavily) a scrap piece of cardstock with Altenew Sapphire ink and set aside. I planned on using this for my sentiment. I snipped out a two small snowflakes and the sentiment and sentiment background from the dies. For the snowflakes I used The Stamp Market Diamond Glitter cardstock and Tonic Glitter Card in Sugar Crystal (also sold out. The holidays folks. We all go for the same products this time of year).
I took the scrap piece inked with Sapphire and die cut the sentiment background and then die cut the sentiment in the Diamond Glitter cardstock. I next trimmed down the background panel and then glued the snowflakes onto the panel and snipped off any overhang. Then, I doubled up some white foam tape and adhered it to the back of the sentiment and laid it on the panel.
The last embellishments I added are the Studio Katia Icy Sparkle Crystals. I wanted a sparkly background behind the designed panel, but all of my “white” glitter cardstock throws off many colors. What I like about the Distress Rock Candy glitter I used earlier is that it is clear glitter; no colored tints. So, I used a sheet of double sided adhesive onto another panel of white cardstock and covered it with glitter. After shaking off the excess, I used a bone folder to burnish the glitter into the adhesive. Doesn’t matter, it’s still shedding glitter. LOL. I’ll no doubt make someone happy with this card. Ha!
To finish up, I used Sookwang Scor-Tape to adhere my colored panel to the glitter background, and then more Scor-Tape to adhere that to a white card base.
That’s all for today’s card. I highly recommend this fun set from The Greetery. They have such a talent for making something detailed and complex very easy to produce. I love their products. Thanks for stopping by!
