Hello friends. Today I have another Christmas card for you. It uses the Snowflake Splendor suite of products from the 2020 Stampin Up August to December Holiday Catalogue.
I love how this card turned out with the pastel colours. There isn't any stamping on this card; it's all punched, die cut or embossed. I have used the Inlaid Embossing technique on the main layer which creates texture and interest. Instructions are below (but it's so easy!).
I love the variation in colourin this Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper. This one I have used for the background looks like it has been created with sponging and inking. It's beautiful to create with.
Inlaid Embossing Technique Instructions
Inlaid embossing just refers to the pieces you add to the card, also being included in the embossing. For this card:
- Start with a piece of the Snowflake Splendor DSP 9.9cm x 14.2cm which I adhered to a piece of cardstock the same size for extra weight.
- Punch three pieces of coordinating Snowflake Splendor DSP, using the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.
- Adhere these evenly across the centre of the card using glue or Stampin' Seal.
- Emoss this whole piece in the Winter Snow Embossing Folder.
Here's the piece before it was embossed.
and here is the piece after it was embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder to create the Inlaid Embossing.
After I had completed this layer, I sponged the edges in Misty Moonlight ink (using a sponge dauber) and then placed it onto a thin mat of Balmy Blue Cardstock, and onto a base card of Highland Heather.
Next I die cut the snowflakes in Balmy Blue Glimmer paper and Balmy Blue cardstock, using the So Many Snowflakes Dies, and popped one of the Blue Adhesive Backed Gems in the centre of each (they come in different sizes which suited my project). For the sentiment I used my Word Wishes dies and Purple Posy cardstock.
The Word Wishes Dies are a super versatile die set to own as you can create so many different die cut sentments. You can get even more sentiments when you combine it with the coordinating stamp set called A Wish for Everything. Here's a look at these two great products.
I hope you like today's project. I realy love how it turned out and it's nice and sparkly for Christmas.
