Im so busy prepping for tomorrows launch of the takeover weekend with Hochanda that its a card form the vaults today!
This is one of the samples I made for my stamp launch in December and thought it deserved, as with all snowdrops, its day in the sun. I stated by stamping the main element from the Snowflake elements clear stamp set for Creative Expressions in black archival ink onto coconut white car.
I changed the sentiment as the main element has different sentiments included in the set that are interchangeable. Next I piped white PVA dimensional glue into the petals of the snowdrops and in a random selection of the snowflakes and stars.
Next I cut a piece of vintage silver card into a rectangle and cut a centre circle out form the top using one of the italian collection dies from Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. I then embossed list with the let it snow embossing folder and placed a PVA white pearl dot in the centre of each snowflake before mounting this over the stamped image.
I then cut the trailing ivy die and a selection of the camellia closed petal dies in coconut white, shaped them, and added these as a sweep going down the side of the card from right to left.
A few layers of silver and white and finished. This card hopefully demonstrates that just because a die or embossing folder is designed for the festive period it can be used at any time!
Back tomorrow with a sample from the shows!
