Firstly thank you all for the wonderful comments about me joining the Creative Expressions design team! If anyone else would like to apply the Design Team call went out last week click HERE for the details on how to apply for this exciting Opportunity! Once again It would be great if you could pop over to the blog and leave a comment there! My post goes live after 2pm so I know I'm asking a lot! lol
Today sees my second card as a memeber of the design team and again it is Christmas based using the new Christmas range of Dies and Stamps to match from Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. This time I went with the non traditional colours of Blue and Silver a colour combination I love for the Let It Snow words of this die.
I stared by using Sue Wilson's triple stamping technique where you pile three sizes of card on top of each other and then stamp around the edges. I did this using Perfect Medium and then embossed the snowflake stamped images with Details White embossing Powders. Next I unstacked the pieces and gave each one a mat of vintage silver foundation card before foam mounting them to create the base.
The card itself is made with layers of the silver and navy blue card with the middle section embossed using the Quilted Flower A4 embossing folder. I added a row of pearl PVA dots to emphasise the centre image.
I die cut the outside oval from the Austrian Collection Innsbruck die and mounted it onto a an oval of silver card onto which I had added a double sided adhesive sheet. The gaps between the die cuts is then filled with Iced Snow to add just a hint of glitter to what could be a flat card with just 2 colours!
Finally I added a silver die cut of the Let It Snow die which I had added more of the Pearl PVA on the snowflakes and over the letters of the word snow to make these pop.
