I am excited to share with you today’s card which uses some of the limited edition products from the just released Snowflake Showcase. The star of this card is the copper embossed snowflake tree from the Snow is Glistening stamp set. I may have gone a little overboard heat embossing today but I just love the look and texture of the raised images. I even heat embossed the snowflake trinket!
I love how this stamp set coordinates with the gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog. This DSP and the Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon I used on my card are from the Joyous Noel Suite (which is one of my favorites). I love the copper foil accents.
This easel fun fold is quick & easy to create! The Sahara Sand cardstock is cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2. I adhered a 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of DSP just below the score line. The tree is heat embossed on Merry Merlot cardstock that measures 2 1/2 x 4 and layered on Copper Foil that is 2 5/8 x 4 1/8. The layered image is adhered to the DSP only. *Don’t adhere the top portion as you want it to stand up when opened.
I wrapped the elegant ribbon around the card and tied a bow. I secured the bow at the base of the tree with a glue dot. Here’s a look at the card when it’s closed.
I love the inside of the card as much as the front! I cut the Merry die from the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies and heat embossed the greeting.
You can heat emboss sentiments in any color by simply stamping the sentiment in Versamark first, then ink, then sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder. I love to watch the magic happen with the Heat Tool. *Don’t forget to use the embossing buddy on the cardstock before you stamp to prevent the embossing powder from sticking to other areas of your card. I used Merry Merlot ink for the greetings. I wanted the snowflake to be copper so I put a glue dot on the back and used my paper piercing tool to hold it as I stamped it in the Versamark, then dipped it in the Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool. The raised snowflake holds the easel card up.
I usually play around make more than one card when I’m creating and this was no exception. I decided to switch up the sentiments and try the Merry die at the bottom.
I think this card would look pretty on a mantle or side table.
Which one do you prefer? I’d love to hear from you. Please leave a comment below.
