Here are the products I used to make this card:
Cling Angel Kisses Set
Cling Warmest Greetings
Shabby White Embossing Enamel
Silver Crushed Glass Glitter
Colored Cardstock (Burgundy Cut 4-1/4 x 11 and Gold Cut 4-1/2 x 5-3/4)
Black Memento Inkpad
Scattered Straw Distress Ink
Here's another view of the card front:
The first step is to cut the transparency to the size of your card front which is 5-1/2x4-1/4. (Remember when cutting transparency to put a printer paper sheet under it otherwise the cutter won't slice through the plastic.) I used a glue pad to ink up my snowflake but you can also use Watermark pad, a Top Boss embossing inkpad, or any pigment inkpad. For some reason, the glue pad worked best for me. Sprinkle on the embossing enamel and shake off excess. Apply a heat tool to the image but hold farther away than you normally would for paper. Keep a close eye on the melting process as overheating will warp the transparency.Next, simply run a line of adhesive on the top edge of the transparency and affix to the burgundy card front along the top fold. You will cover up the taped area with the ribbon. I used seam binding and created a double bow then scrunched it with a little mist of water to create the vintage feel. To make the ruffle edge, just lay down a length of Scor-Tape or similar and work a length of ribbon into ruffles as you work along the tape. This is very random! Cut the gold cardstock layer 5-3/4 x 4-1/2 and mount that to the back of the burgundy card.
Create the tag with a scrap piece of cardstock and edge distress with ink. I added a length of Scor-Tape at the end of the tag and dipped it into the crushed glass glitter. I colored baker's twine with a Garnet Copic marker to match the cardstock.
The inside of the card looks like this:
Stamp the sentiment with black Memento inkpad and then the snowflake with the Scattered Straw inkpad.Want to win some FREE Stampendous stamps? Post your comment by clicking here.
