Welcome to the Artisan Wednesday WOW blog hop. If you are following the hop, then you should have arrived here from Cindy Schuster's blog. Cindy is such a wonderful stamper/paper crafter. I look forward to seeing her fabulous projects each week. Today, the design team is featuring products from our monthly shipment of goodies. Our November box was filled with lots of Christmas/Winter products. It's never too early to get started on those gifts and cards for family and friends.
I used several different techniques to give this card a feel of a snow storm at night. First, I placed the three smallest snowflakes from the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies on a piece of 5.5" x 4.25" Basic Black card stock and ran it through the Big Shot. While I was at it, I also die cut the word "Merry" from the Expressions Thinlits. After carefully removing all of the die cut pieces, I stamped the snowflakes from the Festive Flurry stamp set over the remaining background with VersaMark ink. Then I added some Iridecent Ice embossing powder and heat embossed the background.
Next, I stamped the three smallest snowflakes from the Festive Flurry set with Jet Black StazOn ink on Whisper White card stock and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I also die cut the word "Merry" out of Whisper White card stock. Then I adhered the card front to a 5.5" x 4.25" Basic Black card base. I carefully glued in the snowflakes and the word "Merry" into the negative spaces and trimmed off the excess. To complete the look I just added some rhinestones. It sounds harder than it actually is. One of the things that I love about this card is that it doesn't have a lot of bulk, so it would be easy to mail. The inlaid snowflakes and sentiment also give this card a unique twist.
That's all for today's project. Now be sure to head on over to see what the amazingly talented Erica Cerwin and the rest of the Artisan Design Team have in store for you! Don't miss a single project...
