Catching Snowflakes Card…

Hello there Lakeside Readers!

 

This card was so much fun to make because it incorporated a little bit of stamping, embossing, coloring, cutting, tearing and distressing. I do love the way this card turned out and I had a good time designing it.

Here’s what to do:

 

1)    Cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Crumb Cake Card Stock and score it at 5-1/2″ With the Round Corner Punch round off each corner.

2)    Cut a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Baja Breeze Card Stock and corner round the two bottom corners.

3)    On the Baja Breeze, ink the edges with a Dauber and Baja Breeze Ink. Then stamp the tree from the Season of Friendship Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink, the bird from the same set in Real Red Ink and the snowflake in Versa Mark Ink. Sprinkle the snowflakes with White Embossing Powder and emboss with the Heat Tool.

4)    Cut a 2″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Whisper White Card Stock and tear it across the top edge to resemble a snow drift. Adhere this to the Baja Breeze and wrap it with a piece of Red Gingham Ribbon.

6)    Layer everything as shown adding Dimensionals behind the girl and Basic Rhinestones to the snowflakes. Don’t forget to add a rhinestone in the little girls hand. After all this card’s name is, “Catching Snowflakes!”

 

Thanks for visiting!

Red Cardinal in the Snow…

This actually was our Christmas Card last year. Talk about a late post!  But this is the first day of the “Twelve Days of Holiday Cards & Projects” hence the first Holiday card. When ever I make Christmas/Holiday cards I try to make them into ornaments. If I’m spending this much time hand making a card I really don’t want people tossing them out after the holiday season has passed.

STAMP SET:

Season of Friendship

INK:

Versa Mark

PAPER:

Garden Green Card Stock

Whisper White Card Stock

ACCESSORIES:

White, Red  & Gold Embossing Powder

Big Shot “Top Note” Die

Dazzling Diamonds

Gold Elastic Cording

Rhinestone & Star embellishments

Here’s what I did:

Using The Big Shot and the Top Note Die I cut one die out of Whisper White  and one out of Garden Green Card Stock. I then tore the bottom of the Whisper White Top Note for the snow and adhered it to the Garden Green. I stamped the tree from the Season of Friendship Stamp Set in Versa Mark  and embossed it using Gold Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. I then stamped again, in Versa Mark, the snowflake from the same stamp set  randomly on the tree branches. I embossed the snowflakes using White Embossing Powder. The bird was stamped in Real Red Ink to resemble a cardinal in the snow. With the Two-Way Glue Stick I added Dazzling Diamonds to the tree branches and Whisper White Card Stock to resemble snow. In the middle of some of the snowflakes I placed rhinestones. On top of the tree I added a red star I had and added a Gold Elastic Loop for hanging.

See you tomorrow!
