I wanted to capture a magical and warm feeling on my card, what better way than to create a wreath of snowflakes! There is something so wonderfully magical about snowflakes dont you think?
So I pulled out all the snowflake punches, dies and chipboard I had.
I started out with the chipboard since they would take most of the prep. I sprayed them with Studio Calico white ink and then added a coat of Stickles.. Then I cut out some pink felt snowflakes with my dies. And finally cut out a few random vellum and card stock snowflakes.
For the card base I first masked out a circle and then stamped the base with my Hero Arts magical background stamp with some Versamark ink (yep I wanted it to be magical and I was gonna get magical!!) ha ha:-).
Then I took off the circle mask and used my Calico white spray and randomly spritzed my base to create a snowy feel, just like Lucy Abrams did in this video..
Now it's time for embellishing. I laid down all the elements to see how I could position them and then carefully stuck them down with glossy accents. (This was the only adhesive I rely on when I need something to stay put)
As you can see, I filled in the gaps with buttons and pearls. I love the way it looks now!
Oh, btw.. Those silver glitter stars are made by printing a couple of stars on white card stock, cutting them out and applying a coat of Silver Stickles on them:-)
Then I wrapped a strip of vellum on the base, and then topped with some twill tape( because it goes so perfectly with Kraft) and finally layered the stamped sentiment.
With a final bit of'stitching' and a ribbon bow, my card was done!
