Hello, I am so proud of this card, and a bit sad that I can’t make many more Christmas cards. Are you enjoying the holiday season? What are your favourite cards to make? Let in know in the comment section below.
Embossing With Die
I started with a sheet of Neenah Solar white card and trimmed it to 11 x 14 cm and embossed with the Lawn Fawn Snowy backdrops die. To emboss with your metal dies in the Big Shot you need to use Tab 1, a cutting plate, an embossing mat, your card and die, and the top cutting mat. The embossing mat will make the die push into the card – emboss – instead of cutting.
On another piece of Neenah Solar white I stamped Mr Frosty, created a mask for him then stamped Mrs Frosty. I coloured them in with Nuvo Alcohol markers and cut out around Mr and Mrs Frosty, leaving a small border and cut the ends to create a snowy bank for them to be standing on.
Adhering some Stick It double sided adhesive to the back of a black scrap of card and die cut Seasons from the Snowflakes die set. I used Stick It because this is such an intricate and tiny die and this adhesive sheet is the easiest way to get some adhesive on the back of it. Finishing the sentiment by stamping “Greetings”. Before I add any foam tape I remembered to add some details to the hats, scarf, bow and hand muff with a white glaze pen.
Finishing The Card
To add some dimension I will pop up this piece up with foam tape so there would be a nice defined separation from the white on the background and the white border around Mr and Mrs Frosty. For a bit more interest I added some Nuvo enamel accents in White Blizzard and Crystal Glaze.
