Today's project was one of the favorites at my "Last Thursdays" class last night and it was one of my favorites, as well!
Not only are there three types of sparkle going on, we're also using three types of snowflakes! It's a trio of sparkly and wintery goodness!
The triple-layer snowflake is created with the Snow Flurry Die using Silver Glimmer Paper, and Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White card stocks. The larger flakes are adhered with Dimensionals, and the top white die-cut is attached with a Mini Glue Dot. The finished embellishment is bejeweled with a Rhinestone center!
The 2-1/2" x 4" Elegant Eggplant panel was randomly stamped with the Snowflake Soiree images inked up in the new Illuminate Glimmer Watercolor Ink. Have you seen this on page 23 in the Holiday Catalog? Most of my stamping friends had skipped right over this awesome product.
Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Ink give a beautifully luminescent, tone-on-tone watermark look. It looks especially fabulous stamped on darker card stock colors and glistens differently depending on how the light is hitting it. I love it for making stamped backgrounds—subtle and luxurious!
The More Merry Messages sentiment is stamped in Elegant Eggplant and punched with an Extra-Large Oval Punch.
The 1-1/4" x 4" Whisper White panel is embossed with the snowflake Delicate Designs Texture Impressions Folder, then accented with a 3/4" x 4" Scallop Edge Border punched strip of Silver Glimmer Paper.
TIP: Use Sticky Strip when trying to adhere something to the top of Glimmer Paper. All those sparklies make it difficult to stick to card stock with SNAIL.
A strip of Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon was adhered with SNAIL over the center seam to match the Wisteria Wonder card stock base.
The second card uses the same sentiment, punched with the Modern Label Punch this time. But the biggest difference is the border.
I used the Large Scallop Edgelit for a decorative border that opens up to a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper cut with the Scallop Edge Border Punch.
Been-There, Done-That TIP: I decided to die-cut the edge at the last minute after embossing and the texture didn't hold up to well after running it through the Big Shot again. Die-cut first, then emboss for best results.
I gave my class attendees a choice of two color combinations for this pretty card. This one is done with Pool Party and Island Indigo In Colors. All the instructions are the same, so I'll just show you the photos real quick-like…
I opted not to do a die-cut border card, so I did a horizontal version instead…
My class attendees picked the purple version two-to-one over the teal version. Which one do you like better?
