So I thought I'd whip up a winter card and sprinkle it with a little "snow" aka Sparkle Fibers!
To keep the card "frosty", a monochromatic color theme was used for the card and stamped designs paired with a crisp, white mat. The snow couple was stamped first, then background snowflakes were added to the sky...
The "snowdrift" was made by first "drawing" it in using Glue Gloss, then sprinking it with the Sparkle Fibers...
The stamped sentiment was embellished with a few snowflakes. And then the snowflakes themselves were embellished with some snowflake jewels. A few jewels were stolen from the smallest snowflake to use to bling up the snow couple.
Here are the supplies and directions for this card...
“snow kiss” card
Skill Level: easy
My Sentiments Exactly: Snow Kisses and Retro Winter
Petersen Arne: white and aqua cardstock
Tools: adhesive, paper trimmer and scissors
1) Cut a 4 X 6 piece of aqua cardstock and fold in half to make card.
2) Cut a 3 1/2 square of white cardstock, ink snow couple using Aqua ink, stamp in center of square and ink edges of cardstock as well; set aside to dry.
3) Ink small snowflake using Seaglass ink and stamp around couple, stopping about 1 1/4 from bottom; set aside to dry.
4) Cut a 3/4 X 4 piece of white cardstock and stamp sentiment in center using Aqua ink; also ink edges if cardstock with ink then set aside to dry.
5) Use glue gloss to adhere Sparkle Fibers to create snowdrift at bottom of 3 1/2 stamped cardstock square; set aside for glue to set.
6) Stamp small, medium and large snowflake on white cardstock using Seaglass ink. When ink has dried, cut them out and ink edges using Aqua ink then set aside to dry again.
7) To assemble card, adhere 3 1/2 stamped square at top of card and sentiment about one inch below it. Then adhere cut out snowflakes as shown and add rhinestones to snow couple and snowflakes. Snowflake jewels were used at the center of the large and medium snowflakes. The outer row of rhinestones was cut off of another snowflake - the remaining center was adhere to the center of the small snowflake and the jewels that were cut off were used for the buttons and eye on the snow couple.
